    President's greeting

    Hanshin Metallics Co., Ltd. was founded in 1956 and Kawakami Hagane Co., Ltd. was founded as a trading company specializing in special steel in 1941. Since then, we have been serving as a bridge between steel makers and customers. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the support from our customers, suppliers, and everyone involved in our business.

How should we, as a special steel trading company, function in the market?
Pursuing to grasp the solution for this, we have been devoting ourselves to becoming the hub that optimally connects steelmakers and customers, with our endeavor to deliver the products at the lowest cost possible in the entire market.
Our established system enables us to efficiently deliver what our customers need when they need the items.
We also have developed the system that maximizes the efficiency of our quality control and delivery date management with functionally located branch offices, sufficiently stocked items, cutting/machining equipment, automated warehouse, delivery system, and self-developed computer system.

Global competition has become more and more severe in recent years. In order to provide better solutions to our customers in such circumstance, we have established an overseas subsidiary with an efficient system for inventory, forging, machining, and heat treatment.

With this establishment, we have made small yet sure steps to meet global needs of the market.
For our customers, we have made quite in-depth proposals and we will continue to maintain this stance and sincerity to build a deep relationship.

We also believe that we cannot make really good proposals without being humane, considering others, and pursuing virtues and beautiful ways of life. I think it is our responsibility to advance the cultivation of human resources who can make proposals with true sincerity and honesty.

We strive to share the following visions within the group: our lives can be beautifully enriched through thinking from the customer's point of view and overcoming difficulties with patience.
Humanity, sincerity, creativity and enthusiasm are what our sales staff value, and we will continue to make an effort to meet your needs in a satisfactory way.

We look forward to your continued support.

Toshihiko Kawai, President and CEO
