February 21, 2023

HOUSTON, TX, and Kyoto, JPN – Equipment Depot, Inc., America’s largest independently operated material handling and equipment rental source, with Mitsubishi Logisnext Co. LTD (TYO: 7105), and Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Group have united to sponsor Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Player, Ayaka Furue from Kobe, Japan.

As a seven-time winner on the Japanese Ladies Professional Golf Association (JLPGA) Tour, and a winner of the Trust Gold Women’s Scottish Open in July 2022, Ms. Ayaka Furue is poised for further success in 2023. “Ms. Furue’s determination, commitment, and passion to be great aligns perfectly with our company’s core values,” stated David Turner, President and CEO of Equipment Depot, “and also embodies the values of our partners Mitsubishi Logisnext Americas Group and our parent company, Mitsubishi Logisnext.”

Ms. Furue exhibits Equipment Depot’s Core Values by demonstrating her Passion to Perform — focusing on delivering real results and continuously striving to achieve excellence. She also Makes it Fun, another of Equipment Depot’s Core Values. At Equipment Depot, enjoying the job is serious business. Like Ms. Furue, Equipment Depot employees work hard and celebrate their successes.

“I’m honored to be sponsored by these highly respected companies,” Furue commented, “and thank the Logisnext Group for their support with me in LPGA tournaments in Japan and the U.S.”

Ms. Furue will serve as our brand ambassador while competing on the tour throughout 2023 wearing co-branded attire. Her first LPGA major of the year is at The Chevron Championship in The Woodlands, Texas — held on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at The Club at Carlton Woods. The event is slated for April 20th through 23rd, 2023.
