As a Member of Kobe Steel Group

In 2005, our Kobe Steel Group celebrated its centennial anniversary.
Looking ahead to the next 100 years, it will be ever-more important to make efforts that bolster the comprehensive strengths of the Group, and raise the reliability of the technologies, products and services of each Group company so that we will achieve even further development.
Given this, the Kobe Steel Group has newly established “KOBELCO,” used by Kobe Steel and certain related companies, as the “Group Brand,” which will begin to be used throughout the Group. Moreover, on this occasion, as our Corporate Philosophy we have formulated a shared set of values held since our foundation, in order to heighten a sense of Group unity. Here we will introduce our “KOBELCO Promise.”
Amidst the globalization of the economy and the severity of the changing environment in which the Company operates, every Group member will share this Corporate Philosophy and put it into practice with the aim of strengthening our Group.
We do this in order for the Kobe Steel Group to achieve sustainable growth together with society.
