Our Strengths and Distinctive Qualities

A Pioneer in the Heavy Temporary Construction Steel Business Celebrates Its Sixtieth Anniversary

M. O. Tec Corporation is active in a broad spectrum of businesses ranging from leasing and sales of heavy temporary construction materials indispensable to building and civil engineering work sites—including sheet piles, H beams, anti-collapsing steel bracings, and decking panels—to various types of construction work. The company, which celebrates its sixtieth anniversary in 2013, is a pioneer in the heavy temporary construction materials business.

As a result of the takeover bid Metal One made this memorable year, M. O. Tec is now a wholly owned subsidiary with an even greater commitment to the Metal One Group's construction steel value chain. The company's president, Tetsuo Suzuki, says: "Our new status as a subsidiary of Metal One has brought us into a new stage of development. We will further strengthen our ties with fellow members of the Group, including Metal One Structural Steel & Resource Corporation."

The market for heavy temporary construction materials remains tight, as the total investments in construction in Japan were ¥45 trillion in fiscal 2012, a little over half of the peak of ¥84 trillion marked in fiscal 1992. In this adverse situation, taking the opportunity to merge with Japan Steel Leasing Co., Ltd., in 2008, M. O. Tec has integrated or closed down some of its plants in Japan, reducing their number from 26 to 19. The company also sought out opportunities overseas, and in 2011 set up a subsidiary in fast-growing Vietnam in a bid to promote selectivity and business focus.

The active development of infrastructure such as motorways, railroads, and ports and harbors is now under way in Vietnam, where many Japanese official development aid (ODA) projects are in progress. This means a likely increase in demand for heavy temporary construction materials used in building and civil engineering work sites. "Counting only ODA projects, there are currently more than ten, and adding private sector projects to this would suggest a considerable level of demand," President Suzuki notes.

Among others, the Nghi Son Refinery, which Idemitsu Kosan Co., Ltd. and its partners are planning to start building during 2013, is a huge project of some US7.2 billion dollars in total cost, and M. O. Tec is expected to supply sheet piles and other products to this project from its Dong Van Plant that started operations in October 2012.

In Japan, too, business is recovering, reflecting bustling public works investments resulting from "Abenomics" in addition to reconstruction demand related to the Great East Japan Earthquake. President Suzuki seems to be encouraged, saying: "The environment is getting better." M. O. Tec is handling diverse heavy temporary construction materials at its 19 plants in Japan, which range from Hokkaido to Kyushu, and is demonstrating strength by providing unique products, including panel-type safety barriers to protect against falling rock and the Mini Guard System featuring shiftable guard rails. Furthermore, M. O. Tec is the biggest dealer in Japan of NS Ecopile, Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd.'s rotary press-fit steel pipe piling method.

"We have been doing business to contribute to the development of social infrastructure constantly. As a member of the Metal One Group, we would like to continue to meet the needs for heavy temporary construction items in Japan and the rest of the world," said President Suzuki, expressing his renewed determination.
