Iron & Steel Division-III supplies steel sheets and stainless steel products to a wide range of industry sectors such as consumer electronics, household equipment, kitchen equipment, steel furniture, vehicle onboard components, railroad cars and others closely linked to everyday life. We take full advantage of the processing functions of our subsidiaries to bring customers topflight high-valued-added products. Supplying basic materials for retailers to steel product wholesalers, coil center operators and other distributors is another of the division's main functions.
Our division mobilizes MISI group processing facilities to provide Japanese customers that are developing business in China and Southeast Asia with the same quality of service available in Japan. In areas with robust demand, we install increasingly advanced processing equipment and provide more sophisticated processed steel products to better address customer requirements. In the titanium and new materials domains, we are advancing initiatives toward satisfying orders from overseas factories.
We established an independent stainless steel sales organization in April 2015, and have effectively placed our steel sheet and stainless steel operations under a single division. The goal is to realize a truly “hybrid” headquarters geared to fluidly fuse our efforts in both categories. More specifically, we will generate greater synergies by handling both types of products, further enriching our corporate function as an integrated and powerful sales presence dealing in both steel sheet and stainless steel.
Iron & Steel Division-III’s UCC is one of the largest coil center businesses in Southeast Asia. The company has three plants in Thailand that process some 500,000 tons of products annually for customers in various fields, such as the automotive and consumer electronics industries. Our customers give us high marks for our quality and service. UCC procures its base metals from all across Asia, and is strengthening customer service as both an Asian steel-processing base and one of MISI’s iconic overseas businesses.
