Introduction of Group Companies
From Value One Summer 2006 No.13
Construction steel products coil center Suzufuji Steel Service Co., Ltd. is one of the Metal One Group's core companies. Under President Kimiya Nakai's capable management, the company has promoted operational growth through such measures as aggressive mergers and acquisitions, and is also devoting efforts to developing human resources.
Realizing "What is Best for the Group" through Mergers and Acquisitions

Suzufuji Steel Service was formed in 2001 through a merger of former Suzufuji Steel Co., Ltd., a well-established coil center, and former Yutaka Steel Service Co., Ltd., which was Mitsubishi Corporation's official dealer of steel products. Through aggressive corporate restructuring and corporate acquisitions from the time of the merger, the company has increased its presence as one of the Metal One Group's core coil centers serving the construction steel products industry.

The company acts as both a coil center and official dealer, and is thus notable due to its expansive sphere of operations. As a multifaceted coil center that possesses combined processing and wholesaling capabilities, it offers a broad range of functions and services, including sales, inventory and processing. Moreover, because the construction steel products sector, including manufacturers of light gauge shapes, accounts for around 90% of its customer base, the company's management vision is to establish a supermarket dealing with steel plates and sheets for retail sales and construction steel products. It continues to expand operations by focusing on steel sheets for construction steel products. Business volume was approximately 268,000 tonnes in 2005.

The company restructured its manufacturing sites in January of this year and now operates two plants, in Funabashi ( Chiba Prefecture ) and Narita (Taiei-machi, Chiba Prefecture ). The plant has owned a galvanized steel plate and sheet slitter line since purchasing a plant from a company in the same business in 2004. In May 2005, the tinplate processing line from Most Corporation, which is dedicated to tinplate processing in the Metal One Group, was also transferred to the factory. The additional transfer of all equipment from former Suzufuji's Shonan Coil Center (Shonan-machi, Chiba Prefecture) in December last year, brought the system to three slitter lines and gave it the ability to respond to customer needs with a broad range of processing capabilities.

Meanwhile, the Narita Plant expanded its warehouse yard in September of last year, substantially increasing its raw materials storage capabilities. The plant is characterized by how it uses its spacious site. Along with the installation of a large slitter line that can handle materials of up to two meters wide, its full range of fabricating equipment includes a large leveler, two mini-levelers and seven shearers.

According to President Nakai, "Business conditions are such that we cannot differentiate ourselves from other companies with products, so we have to win with software, which means more human resources. Our biggest issues are personnel training and developing our organization." He also noted the company is devoting efforts to thorough in-house training.
