You don’t have to wait for a job, pay your bills and take the day off.
That’s the promise of the new automated door contractors.
The company, Automated Door Contractor, has been operating in Japan for the past year and has raised more than $100 million from Japanese investors including Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group and Mitsubishis Mitsubisha Group.
Automated Door has been in operation in Japan since the early 2000s, and the company’s Japanese headquarters are in Tokyo.
The company has since expanded into other Asian markets including China, Korea and India.
“We have a lot of customers in Asia, and it is really hard to find contractors in these areas.
Automated door contractors are the perfect solution to fill that gap,” said David Mok, CEO of Automated Door Contractor.
“It is not only a cost-effective way to hire contractors but it also provides us with great customer service and is an easy way to get in contact with our customers.”
According to Mok’s company, the automated door contractors have been used in Japan in a variety of roles, including door maintenance and repairs, and door inspections.
The firm is currently in the process of rolling out a similar service in other Asian countries.
The cost of an automated door contractor can range from $10 to $30 per day depending on the job.
In Japan, the average hourly wage for an automatic door contractor is around $60.
The Japanese government recently made automated door contracts a legal requirement for private companies operating in the country.
The government has also introduced the first-ever regulations to ban foreign companies from entering Japan for business purposes.
In the United States, some companies have begun to offer automatic door contracts.
Door Contracting in Florida, for example, began offering automated door services in December, and Door Contracter in New York City has also been offering the service.
Mok says the company has more than 1,000 active contracts with clients in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
He hopes that the service will soon spread to other Asian nations, such as South Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.
“It is a really simple concept, and in a few years, it will be an all-purpose contractor service in all parts of the world,” he said.
