Sunrock Oyodo Co., Ltd., a major wire rod manufacturer in the Metal One Group, built a new Kyushu plant and held a completion ceremony on October 21. Prior to this, Sunrock Oyodo had four plants: one annexed to its head office and the other three in Harima, Kyushu, and Mie. Because the original Kyushu plant (located in Yahata-Higashi-ku, Kitakyushu) was no longer able to keep up with production needs, the new plant was constructed at Hibiki-machi in Wakamatsu-ku, Kitakyushu, at a cost of approximately ¥800 million and with a view to enhancing work efficiency and ensuring safety.

The completion ceremony was attended by many distinguished guests, including Mayor Kenji Kitahashi of Kitakyushu City and other high-ranking officials of the municipality; representatives of suppliers; and Ryoji Shinohe, division COO of the Wire & Specialty Steel Division of Metal One. In his address, President Toshiaki Ihaya of Sunrock Oyodo expressed the company’s determination to pursue further development. The new plant is expected to make important contributions to the expanded manufacturing and sales of ordinary steel wire, which is extensively used in the civil engineering, construction, and auto manufacturing sectors.
