Hayakawa UK had a night to remember at the Croes Howell restaurant near Wrexham.

Staff and partners gathered to celebrate Hayakawa enjoying 25 years of business in the UK with a black tie event.

General Manager Devinder Bansal commented, “We wanted to say a big thank you to our staff for all their hard work and dedication. We’ve all had a fantastic evening – great food, great party atmosphere and a big thank you to everyone who has made Hayakawa the success it has become through 25 years of hard work and customer dedication.”


The Mayor of Himeji, Mr Toshikatsu Iwami and his wife, along with a delegation from Japan, visited Hayakawa UK as part of a Japanese tourism promotion of North Wales. They have selected the best twenty Roads in the World; one of these being “Wonder of Castles Road’’, which runs from the south of Wrexham along the North Wales coast.

Mr Takeharu Nakajima, a Welsh Government Representative based in Tokyo, was instrumental in arranging and overseeing the visit.

The Mayor is in North Wales to visit Conwy Castle as it is being twinned with the famous Himeji Castle in Japan, both of which are Unesco World Heritage Sites and on 6th July a ceremony will be held in Conwy.

The twinning of the two castles comes as a result of North Wales tourism building close links with the Japanese tourism industry. As HIUK head office is in Himeji, the Mayor wanted to include this in his visit, as along with promoting tourism, Mr Toshikatsu Iwami’s visit was also to help promote Japanese companies in North Wales.

Whilst visiting HIUK the Mayor planted a Japanese maple tree on the grounds, a tangible symbol of not only Hayakwa’s growth and prosperity, but of the flourishing relationship between North Wales and Japan’s tourism.

Sony established the “Sony Green Partner Standards” in 2001 with the aim of encouraging suppliers to introduce Green Partner environmental management systems. This certification recognises that Hayakawa has successfully passed Sony’s rigorous environmental requirements, whilst also highlighting the company’s commitment to the environment and it’s sustainability.

The Sony Green Partner certification enables Hayakawa to be a “preferred supplier” to Sony and to other companies who seek a supplier who has achieved Green Partner status.
