Default Any glass distributors in Asia?

Does anyone know?

My shipping costs are adding 25% extra to my bill to get my glass. $300 dollars of glass costs me $400 to get. I always put off ordering because of this.

I thought I saw something a while ago about a distributor in Japan, but now I can't find anything from my google searches.

thanks to anyone with some ideas or thoughts

Thanks for the help dusty.

Sataki glass is COE125 and at $50/kilo it negates the idea of saving money by ordering from a closer distributor.

I will keep searching. Thanks.

Dunno if this helps but CIM is produced in China. Maybe contacting them to see if they have any Asian dealers?
