E.L. Consulting and Trading Co., Ltd (ELCT), established in 2003, is an international consulting and trading firm, comprised of a small number of business professionals. 

ELCT was formed with the belief that there are many small and middle-sized European enterprises that have a product suitable for the Japanese market.  However, the different business culture, complicated regulations, distance and language usually form an informal trade barrier.  Therefore, having a professional in Japan to follow up the business at close range and to defend the company’s interest is often a crucial factor in being successful.

ELCT does not only provide consulting services for mapping success but also the necessary assistance to implement those strategies effectively.


ELCT’s founder Els Verhulst was trained as a Bio Engineer at the University of Leuven (Belgium) and she finished her studies with a Research Project in Sri Lanka.  She also obtained a MBA degree from the University of Leicester (UK) and is fluent in English, Japanese, Dutch and French. Els Verhulst has been living and working in Japan for more than 25 years and has a comprehensive knowledge of Japan and its business culture.

ELCT is a member of the Belgian-Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce in Japan of which Els Verhulst is a member of the Board.  Els Verhulst is also a Member of the Executive Operating Board of the European Business Council in Japan.

E.L. Consulting and Trading Co., Ltd has a social engagement focused on supporting seriously-ill children and children in developing countries.
