Metal One Deutschland GmbH
Active throughout Europe

Guten tag! Metal One Deutschland GmbH (MOD) is located in Düsseldorf, a commercial and industrial city in central western Germany with an ideal environment for doing business in Europe. The city’s location in central Europe and extensive infrastructure—including railways and highways, water transport (Düsseldorf is on the Rhine River) and air transport (the airport is about a fifteen-minute drive away)—make it possible to travel to many major cities in Europe within two hours. MOD uses these advantages to trade auto-related materials and other products in Germany as well as throughout the rest of Europe. Our select professional team of six members handles multi-item and small-lot sales.


Europe—A Tourist Heaven

There are countless areas with venerable buildings and elegant cityscapes throughout Europe. To the south, the beauty of the Mediterranean Sea is breathtaking. While Germany is a popular destination for tourists, statistics show that the Germans themselves travel to foreign lands more than any nation in the world. This can be attributed to the free movement allowed within EU member states, Germany’s location in the middle of Europe, and the fact that German can be used without major problems in the neighboring countries of Austria and Switzerland. I often see train stations and the airport crowded with families with children during July and August, the summer vacation season.

Encounters with Japanese National Football Team Members?!

Japanese soccer players have been successful on German teams in recent years. Members of Japan’s national football team such as Shinji Kagawa (Borussia Dortmund), Atsuto Uchida (FC Schalke 04), Makoto Hasebe (Eintracht Frankfurt) and Hiroshi Kiyotake (played for Hannover 96 for three seasons, leaving in 2016) have become key and popular players for their adopted German teams. You may think that seeing such star athletes would only happen at the stadium, but reports of encounters with them in Düsseldorf keep pouring in. The reason is that about one percent of Düsseldorf’s 600,000 population—or 6,500 people—are Japanese. The city also has a large number of Japanese restaurants and beauty salons for a foreign community. The Japanese players naturally enjoy Japanese cuisine, and seek to deepen their friendships on days off. If you’re lucky, you may be able to spot them at your hotel during a business trip here. Willkommen—I’ll be awaiting your arrival!
