Sayuri Staff

Mr. Saman Priyankara

Mr. Saman Priyankara

President

Since our start in 1996, we focused on supplying quality vehicles for competitive price rather than selling low quality vehicles for cheap price. As we work on this policy, we could build SAYURI brand in this industry. Also proud to say that most of the customers are related with SAYURI more than 10 years and once you buy vehicle from us we guarantee that you never go and buy from any other supplier. This is my confidence about SAYURI brand.

Ms. Yoshika

Ms. Yoshika BKG

Director

Market condition has drastically changed since the days we started. Yet the trust we won from the customers from the start-up remains at high. Our records show that the customers who bought cars from us even before 10 years ago, have recently bought cars from us. This kind of long standing customer relationship couldn't have existed unless we didn't really make those customers happy and satisfied. Company is successfully moving forward passing the milestones one by one.

Ms. Takase

Accounting job in Sayuri is a real complex one. That complexity is a result of the flexibility we have extended to customers' end. I'm not aware of another company that has given this sort of flexibility of payments to their customers.

Lead Systems Engineer

Customers from around the world with different levels of exposure to IT engage with us in business operations over the internet. Therefore, the IT infrastructure is a vital part of our business. My responsibility is to develop & maintain the company's IT infrastructure to support day to day business operations and long term goals. Most of the time, off the selves software solutions are far too complex or lack of features to cater for the diverse customer-base we have. Therefore, we develop software tools we need in-house, to cater our customer base the best we can. And, I manage and lead all such software development projects.

Ms. Yuka

Ms. Yuka

Senior Clerk/Assistent to Mr.Saman

We provide spare-parts for all the cars we sell for just the cost price, as a service. My job is to fulfill, the spare-parts requests of our customers from around the world. Sometimes it is very difficult to find the parts they request, yet I don't simply reject a single spare-part request, if that spare-part is for a car we have sold. I call several local spare-parts dealers and find that part somehow and deliver to the customer. Attending customer calls on behalf of the president of our company when he is on a business trip abroad is also a part of my job.

Ms. Furuya

Ms. Megumi

Senior Clerk/ Shipping & LC

I arrange shipments, and send B/L and other documents that are needed by banks and customs to customers. Documents needed by customs and banks are slightly different from country to country. A simple mistake in a document can lead to extra cost and delay of custom clearance. It was a tiresome job at the beginning. However, several years of experience in preparing such documents have made me much confident of the accuracy of the documents I prepare. Praising emails I receive from the customers gives me energy to arrange the shipments and send the documents on time.

Ms. Ishiguro

Ms. Ishiguro Sakura

Mr. Tominaga Hitoshi

Mr. Tominaga Hitoshi

Sales & Purchasing Officer

Buying cars from Japan car auctions on customer requests is my job. Japan car auctions are very competitive, many people place bids for the same car online. If you don't have a great deal of experience in placing bids live on those auctions looking at auction sheets, you can easily pass the right value of the car, or the chance of winning a bid can be very less. Every evening, I do a little research on successful bidding prices of the car models we frequently buy, that helps me to place a good bidding price that has a higher chance of success the next day.

Mr. Binal Mathes

Mr. Binal Mathes

Sales & Purchasing Officer

I am a sales officer in SAYURI and handling Sri Lanka, Kenya and PNG markets by myself. If you are a used car dealer in one of the above countries you should have experience about quality of the vehicles you import from Japan. 99.9% suppliers ship used vehicles as-it-is condition. But we bring all our vehicles to SAYURI work shop in Shiroi-City and we do all the cleaning and maintenance before transport to shipping port. This is the SAYURI brand.
