Story of success
Now with 45 years old, Freddy Takada, like many Latin Americans, has come to Japan to work, when he was 20 years old, with his 2 younger brothers. They have come to Japan with a purpose to work for 2 years, so they could help their parents financially.
His start in Japan
When he was still working in a Japanese factory, he created e-commerce Protein Express to sell products online, so he could work at both. However, after working for 6 months, he decided it was time to focus 100% on his business; thus, he quit the factory and created an office in his apartment.
The economic crisis in 2008
In 2008, when the great shock called “Lehman Shock” struck Japan economically, a great part of the Brazilian employees were fired. This provoked a return of a big part of the Brazilians’ community. “It was moments of difficulty, but we could surpass it by cutting off a great number of our expenses,” said Freddy.
The economic crisis in 2011
When things were on the right path that we had been desired and worked for so long, in 2011 a forceful earthquake ( Higashi Nihon) occurred, as we all remember, it, again, made the economy decrease. Therefore, a lot of Brazilians, once more, left Japan, and Freddy had to cut some expenses again: leaving just him and his wife, Veronika, working for the company to return its growth.
Because Brazilians consumers had decreased in numbers, they opened a new company, Tannex Innovation Co., Ltd,. By doing this, they would be able to start selling online at Amazon, Yahoo, and Rakuten.
Freddy is formed in Industrial chemistry and also studied nutrition for 2 years. He has finished a course of Personal Trainer certified by the IFBB. His qualifications have helped him to have a base to develop his business.
The release of MYPROTEX PROTEIN
In 2019, we were able to concretize a dream that we had been desiring for so long: the creation and release of our own branded products. By using imported materials from USA, we manufacture our products in Japan, obeying laws of substance use, additives, and aliment, etc.
We started manufacturing high quality disposable masks. This product is manufactured in our facility at the location described above.
