Shinsho’s Iron & Steel Division utilizes the Kobe Steel Group’s global network to satisfy customer requirements in all phases of their business, from overseas start-ups to stable product supply. We offer not only localized market information but also the kind of technical and production expertise that only a trading company affiliated with a manufacturer can provide. By tapping into the vast and varied sources of the Kobe Steel Group, we can supply the ideal products to meet diverse customer needs.

Providing Support for Overseas Business Development Right from the Start

One of Shinsho’s greatest strengths is the high value-added “Only One” products manufactured by Kobe Steel, which are backed by a wide array of purchasing sources through which we can reliably supply the steel products our customers need anywhere in the world. We are currently establishing joint ventures in North and Central America, China and Southeast Asia so that we can supply Japanese-owned automakers and auto parts manufacturers operating abroad with products of the same high quality as those bought in Japan.
One of our most important missions is to support client companies as they set up their own business operations abroad. We provide parts makers and other companies who are looking to expand abroad with information we’ve gathered from our own overseas operating bases as well as from other members of the Kobe Steel Group, with whom we maintain close ties. In this way we become a true partner in our customers’ enterprises by advising them about siting and plant construction and providing them with information about the purchase of equipment and furnishings.

Active Expansion into Fields and Regions of Growth

Mexico has become a major focal point as a base for manufacturing and exporting products to America. Auto part manufacturers in particular are expected to continue setting up Mexican operations in large numbers, and Shinsho is ready to support them with local subsidiaries that import and export steel products and gather information on new developments as they happen. We have also established a secondary wire processing facility that will further expand business opportunities.
Similarly, we have opened a new factory in the suburbs of Chennai, India that processes steel plate used to manufacture construction machinery. Infrastructure is being built at a rapid pace in India, and this has increased demand for construction machinery. Our new plant will enable use to reliably supply construction machinery manufacturers with high-quality steel plate at a reasonable cost.
Taking advantage of technical expertise and information that only a trading company closely affiliated with a manufacturer can provide, we help our client companies pursue their businesses in fields and regions that promise future growth.
