Swiss Machines Find Route to Japan.

A Japanese trading house, Yachiyoda Sangyo Co. (Tokyo) liquidated itself last December. But the four Swiss builders' products that used to be imported by the ill-fated trader are now available to Japanese users through a new importer.

A former Yachiyoda director and board member, Shinsuke Takei, and others founded a new company christened STC, for "Swiss Technology Co."in Tokyo recently.

STC has 30-million yen ($275,000) in capital and six employees. In addition, operating funds of 28-million yen were provided jointly by the four Swiss companies: Dixi S.A., Tornos Bechler, Voumard Machines Co., and L. Kelleberger & Co.
