Juki America to Market “TAJIMA SAI” Professional Embroidery Machine
Starting in December 2018, JUKI Corporation will be selling the TAJIMA SAI professional embroidery machine (Model: MDP-S0801C(200X300)S) in the North America and Latin America market through the distributors of its U.S. subsidiary, Juki America, Inc.
The embroidery machine is manufactured by Tokai Industrial Sewing Machine Co., Ltd., the world’s top manufacturer of industrial embroidery machines, under the TAJIMA brand name.
The TAJIMA SAI is a compact, easy-to-use embroidery machine packed with advanced technologies allowing users, including non-professionals, to achieve professional quality embroidery. The machine to be sold by JUKI will be marked, “Supplied by JUKI QVP*.”
For many years, JUKI has been serving sewers engaged in quilt-making in the United States, with its long history of quilting, with both household sewing machines with quilting functions and long-arm quilting machines, such as the 3-meter-wide TL-2200QVP which made its appearance in the U.S. in 2012, marking JUKI’s full-scale entry into the American quilting market.
JUKI’s decision to supply customers with the TAJIMA SAI was in response to many requests from home and commercial users of long-arm quilting machines who need high-quality, high-performance embroidery machines that can be used with large, intricate quilts.
To ensure that customers are satisfied and provided with high-quality services, JUKI sets the following three criteria for distributors which sell large, high-functioning sewing machines (e.g., long-arm quilting machines) in the North America and Latin America market: 1) that they are capable of displaying large models and will explain the features in detail, 2) that they can offer workshops and other opportunities for prospective buyers to experience the products first-hand, and 3) that they can provide installation, repair, and other technical services for large, high-functioning models. Only distributors with these qualifications will be selling TAJIMA SAI.
*QVP stands for Quality, Vision, and Professional.
Under the slogan, “Making industrial-level technologies available to general consumers,” JUKI offers household sewing machines that are more sophisticated in quality and performance than others on the market. The same approach applies to the sale of TAJIMA SAI. JUKI aspires to enhance the creativity and artistry of users by providing truly useful embroidery machines.
