SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (Aug. 17, 2022) – DENSO Sales Canada, Inc., an automotive sales unit for leading mobility supplier DENSO, is sponsoring Japan Festival CANADA 2022. The annual event, which is the largest celebration of Japanese culture in North America, returns in-person Aug. 20-21 in Mississauga, Ontario.

While DENSO was founded in 1949 in Japan, the company has been committed to Canada for decades. In fact, DENSO Sales Canada this year is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Mississauga. The location began as a satellite sales office and today plays an important role in how DENSO supports automaker and aftermarket customers, providing high-quality distribution and customer service solutions.

DENSO has also operated for more than 20 years in Guelph, Ontario, where over 600 employees manufacture thermal products like HVAC units, radiators, condensers, engine fans and cooling modules. In addition to its physical locations, the company collaborates with consortiums and universities in greater Montreal to accelerate R&D in high-tech areas like artificial intelligence.

“As a global company with deep ties to Canada and Japan, we are proud to support the festival and its message of harmony and collaboration,” said Seiji Maeda, CEO of DENSO’s North American operations and a senior director of DENSO Corporation. “We share those values, which enhance our pursuit of our Two Great Causes: Green – achieving carbon neutrality by 2035 – and Peace of Mind – creating a safe and seamless word for all. We look forward to a great event.”
