When it comes to performance on the road, there can be no room for compromise—safety and efficiency begin at the fundamental level: a vehicle’s parts.
SPK Corporation has been in the business of supplying primary automotive parts, accessories, and industrial vehicle parts in the aftermarket for over a century.
Founded in 1917, the company leverages its years of experience and expertise in the automotive aftermarket to provide quality parts and reliable service. SPK was listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 2003.
To date, the company continues to evolve with the changing times and needs of its robust market, starting with the development of its own brands, “GSPEK” and “GSPEK PREMIUM”. Moreover, as a global trading company of the mobility business, SPK is actively challenging fields other than parts sales.
“Our core business is automotive spare parts sales for Japanese cars, and we provide this worldwide. The Southeast Asian market is one of the strongest for Japanese used cars, a trend that will remain, and is the reason the ASEAN region is very important for us,” shares Kyoichiro Oki, SPK’s President and Chief Information Officer.
Given the strength of the ASEAN market, SPK has chosen Singapore as its regional hub. The company established an office there in 1980, with a handful of employees.
Since then, the branch has grown significantly, in preparation for SPK’s bid to expand even more into other markets in Asia.
“Now, it has become a huge distribution center of the auto parts in Singapore and all the Southeast Asian countries,” Oki notes.
True to the innovative, excellent spirit that has fueled SPK’s success, thus far, the company is poised to drive into the future of electric vehicles (EVs).
As EVs continue to expand, SPK will play a huge role in parts for these types of cars. “The automotive industry is transitioning towards EVs and other new concepts. Japan is among the technological centers for these changes. So, our role and responsibility to support the Asian market in this transition is getting even bigger.”
