We have worked to develop our steel business on a global scale by leveraging the specialized expertise of each of our companies and harnessing their combined strengths.
Steel operations are central to the NIPPON STEEL NISSHIN Group's business development. From raw materials procurement to steel products deliveries, the group comprises companies that specialize at every stage of operations, including manufacturing, processing and sales. This approach enables us to respond to customers' needs and contribute to society's affluence through our business activities.
We were one of the first Japanese steelmakers to embrace technological collaboration with manufacturers in other countries. Leveraging these networks, we work with companies such as NSWheeling-Nisshin of the United States, to develop our business proactively in the surface treatment sectors in the United States, China and other parts of Asia.
We have also set up overseas representative offices and subsidies in Thailand, the United States and China to facilitate the overseas operations of our Japanese customers. Through these efforts, we work to build optimal supply systems, and provide the same level of quality and service that we offer in Japan.
