Introduction of Group Companies
From Value One Spring 2006 No.12
Metal One SSS West Japan, Ltd., the largest structural steel trading company in the Chugoku region, handles round bars, shapes, and scrap iron and is also involved in round bar processing, construction and steel plate laser-cutting. Together with Group member Nishimoto Sangyo K.K., the company is aiming for a consistent 1 billion in current profits.
Offering Multiple Capabilities - from Construction Steel and Scrap to Building

Metal One SSS West Japan has a diverse range of business lines, from processing, inventory and sales of wide flange beams and round bars, civil engineering and construction work, sales of scrap iron, laser-cutting of steel plates and the warehousing of steel products.

Along with the reinforcing of round bars of its main construction steel business, the company also sells wide flange beams and other products to a broad range of general contractors in the five Chugoku prefectures. Business volume is around 500,000 tonnes annually. The Saeki Plant (in Hatsukaichi, Hiroshima Prefecture ) handles round bar bending and is also heavily involved in construction site installations. In addition, the company handles around 300,000 tonnes of scrap iron a year. It conducts a two-way business, delivering scrap iron to electric furnace manufacturers, on the one hand, and purchasing round bars and other electric furnace products on the other.

Meanwhile, the company's steel plate laser-cutting operation is equipped with a large laser-cutting machine and it has developed business with area shipbuilders and bridge builders, primarily Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Also, taking advantage of the large site it occupies next to Hiroshima Port , the company warehouses cold rolled coil and other steel products.

Discussing future directions, President Mitsuru Miyoshi says: "Our great strength has been our quick response to customer requirements, such as round bar bending and on-site installation. In addition to our obvious capabilities, such as a trading company data-gathering and two-way transactions with electric furnace manufacturers, and our geographical location next to the port, we want to increase multiple business transactions."

The company's role within the Group was clarified in April 2005 with the transfer of the commercial rights of Metal One Nishinihon Corporation's construction steel businesses. The link with Nishimoto Sangyo, a fully-owned subsidiary where Miyoshi also serves as President, was also strengthened. With clearly defined niche areas for the two companies - Nishimoto Sangyo, a construction steel trading company under the former Nissho Iwai Corporation umbrella, excelling at wide flange beams and Metal One SSS West Japan concentrating on round bars - the two companies have a share of around 70% of round bars in the Hiroshima area and also top the region in wide flange beams, demonstrating overwhelming superiority.

Miyoshi says enthusiastically, "We are aiming for stable current profits of ¥1 billion between the two companies."
