Kupa Inc. owner, Richard Hurter solidified his brand in the Japanese market on his most recent trip to Tokyo, Japan with COO Jonathan Ozeretny. The two received raving reviews as they launched the Manipro Glo Duet Lamp at Beauty World Japan. “The Japanese technicians loved the lamp and its dual function,” raves Jonathan. “They were amazed that a small compact lamp could produce such bright light and change to a curing lamp with a wave of the hand.”

Kupa has always enjoyed a stellar reputation for making superior electric files, but its latest innovation was a welcome surprise to the market. Its exclusive distributor TAT has been sharing the Kupa love across the country, introducing its quality e-file machines with first-class education and training. Hiro Matsugi, international sales rep for Kupa Inc Japan, recently introduced the Manipro Passport HANA e-file to husband-and-wife duo Masahiro Matsuura and Keiko Miyajima, owners of Nail X, award-winning nail schools and salons. Upon using, Mr. Matsuura commented on its size, highlighting, “It’s small and perfectly sized for a women’s hands.” He also comments, “The handle is easy hold, it’s lightweight and very well balanced.” Surprised by the feel, he also notes, “After trying out the machine, I saw there was very little vibration and it moved so smoothly across the nail.”

With over 35 years of nail industry experience, the Nail X duo has opened three JNA-accredited nail schools and upholds a policy to only introduce brands they believe in to their students and clients. The latest brand to join their portfolio is now Kupa. As Kupa journeys across Asia, Hiro Matsugi is excited to introduce its impeccable salon products and e-file education into this highly skilled market.
