TINDALL RILEY (BRITANNIA) JAPAN LIMITED

Tindall Riley (Britannia) Japan Limited is the new name for Cornes P&I Co Ltd, which was acquired by the Managers on 3 April 2017. Tindall Riley (Britannia) Japan Limited is headed up by Mr T Sugiyama and operates from two offices in Tokyo and Kobe. They employ a total of 16 staff and provide Britannia Members with high quality services.

Tindall Riley (Britannia) Japan Limited, as it is now known, has had a continuous presence in Japan since 1953, originally through the company Cornes & Co. Cornes & Co is an old company with a venerable history almost as long as Britannia’s. It was formed in Yokohama in 1861, by Frederick Cornes (born in Macclesfield, England, in 1837) and his partner William Aspinall. The company was originally known as Aspinall, Cornes & Company and its main business was the export of silk and green tea. By 1868, however, their activities had expanded and in this year they were appointed agents for Lloyd’s of London.

The relationship with Britannia began in 1953, when Cornes & Co were appointed as Correspondents in both Kobe and Yokohama. The listing in Tokyo finally appeared in 1974. Mr M Yagiu, who headed the P&I section and worked for Cornes from 1962 until 2001, was given the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by the Queen in 1998. In 1994, it was decided to create a separate company, Cornes P&I Co Ltd, which remained in the full ownership of Cornes & Co until the purchase by the Managers (and contemporaneous name change) on 3 April 2017.
