Focusing on industrial machinery and electronic equipment and materials, we supply high-quality products and services by matching leading-edge technologies from the Kobe Steel Group and other companies with market requirements. We are also exploiting networks across China, Southeast Asia and elsewhere to promote our business worldwide.


Reliable Overseas Networks Are Our Strength

In the Machinery & Electronics Division we handle products from Kobe Steel Group companies and a wide range of other manufacturers in the machinery and electronics/IT fields. Our role is to match these manufacturers’ advanced technologies with user requirements across the world.
We also offer a worldwide procurement service to supply steel works and other industrial plants with equipment and materials sourced from Japan and overseas. We have affiliated companies and overseas offices in Asian countries, Dubai, Europe and America, and by linking them we are currently developing trilateral business tie-ups and expanding our import and export business.
In addition we use our networks overseas for ventures to support Japanese customers locating manufacturing overseas, in joint investments in production sites and in funding for new projects. The Division’s overseas business already accounts for more than 50% of the total, and the pace of globalization is expected to accelerate in the future.

Optimizing Use of Personnel, Equipment, Financial Resources and IT for All-Round Customer Support

The Machinery & Electronics Division provides customers with start-to-finish service.
For Japanese customers planning to set up production outside Japan, we offer comprehensive service that provides support not only in sourcing and installing plant and equipment, but also addresses issues such as regulatory systems and import/export licenses, and offers after-service, once equipment has been installed, that covers maintenance, supply of parts, and plant overhaul.
Depending on requirements we can also provide assistance with financial planning for production start-ups, for an all-round package of support making optimum use of human resources, hardware, finance and information. As we consolidate this support function, we plan to strengthen our overseas networks in India, Vietnam, Indonesia and elsewhere, aiming to give our customers complete and full-fledged service.
