The climate of the steel industry is changing faster and more drastically than ever. In facing this challenge, we will act speedily and bravely in order to raise our corporate value and achieve sustainable growth. We aim to be “the Best Steelmaker with World-Leading Capabilities” by taking four major initiatives:
1) globalize the steel business;
2) pursue and excel with advanced technologies;
3) reduce costs
4) strengthen non-steel businesses
Using our world-renowned technological prowess and manufacturing strength, we strive to contribute to global economic growth and creation of an enriched society.
We would like to ask your continued understanding and support for this.

Shoji Muneoka, Chairman & CEO
Hiroshi Tomono, President & COO
