An Expanding Steel Trading Business

Thank you for visiting the website of Kanematsu Trading Corporation.

Our company was established in 1970 as a member of Kanematsu Corporation, a general trading company in Japan. Since then, for over half a century, we have focused on supplying iron and steel products, and we recently expanded our business to include not only our domestic business but also an import and export business. Furthermore, we are now engaged in offshore trade, a business in which we handle a range of iron and steel products as well as raw materials toward meeting various current needs.

Grateful for the steadfast support of our stakeholders, we will mark our 50th anniversary in 2020.

Our management principles of maintaining a high level of transparency and being a company that is highly regarded by society are now firmly established. In accordance with these principles, Kanematsu Trading Corporation will strive to continue its business pursuits for the next 100 years and beyond.

Over the next half-century, we will remain committed to continuing our efforts to fulfill our purpose and achieve our targets.

We appreciate your ongoing and invaluable patronage and support.

Best regards,

Tomofusa Emi
