**We are delighted to welcome Aggreko Japan KK as the newest Corporate member of the BCCJ!**

Aggreko Japan KK, which specializes in temporary power and temperature control systems, established a Tokyo office in 2011 after Aggreko first entered Japan in 2002 with the FIFA World Cup.

A message from Aggreko:

Aggreko plc is the world leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature control solutions. Aggreko employs over 6,000 people operating from 202 locations. In 2013 we served customers in about 100 countries, and had revenues of approximately GBP 1.6bn (USD 2.5bn or Euros 1.9bn). Aggreko plc is listed on the London Stock Exchange (AGK.L), is a member of the FTSE-100 index, and is headquartered in Scotland. For more information, please visit the company website at www.aggreko.com

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time. Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems. We serve our customers either through our 202 service centres, which we call the Local business, or globally through our Power Projects business.

In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues, we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Ryder Cup and Cirque du Soleil and the power utilities in over 50 countries including the UK, France, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Argentina, Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

More specifically, Aggreko entered the Japan market in 2002 with the FIFA World Cup, followed by a significant contract first with Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) in 2011 and then with Hokkaido Electric Power Co., Inc. (HEPCO).  Also in 2011 we established an office in Tokyo where our team focuses on providing power and temperature control equipment to the events, manufacturing, utilities and petrochemical sectors.
