Thailand's SUS and STP Win Prime Minister Industry Awards From Value One
Autumn 2009, No. 26

In Appreciation of Contributions to Logistics and Energy Saving

Awards ceremony

The Siam United Steel (1995) Co., Ltd. (SUS; president: Tomomi Ohara) and Siam Tinplate Co., Ltd. (STP; managing director: Hiroyuki Umeoka)— both Thai companies in which Metal One and Nippon Steel Corporation, among others, have capital stakes—were each honored recently with the Kingdom of Thailand's Prime Minister Industry Award 2009. The awards were instituted by the Thai government in 1993 with an eye to promoting and developing its domestic industry. There are seven categories in which the awards are given: productivity, environmental conservation, safety, quality, energy saving, logistics, and smaller enterprises. There is also a grand award for which only companies that received awards in three or more categories can be nominated. SUS was the awardee in logistics, a new category added this year, and STP was the awardee in energy saving. This was the sixth time for SUS to be honored (and the fifth consecutive year it was given an award) and the first time for STP. The awards ceremony was held on July 14 at the prime minister's official residence, where Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva personally presented the awards.

SUS is engaged in the manufacture and sale of cold rolled steel sheets and base materials for galvanized sheets and tinplate. Metal One and Nippon Steel hold 6.86% and 44.7% shares, respectively, in SUS. The award that was recently bestowed on SUS was in recognition of the company's success in raising loading efficiency per trip in the transportation of finished coils by introducing semitrailer trucks and other means of shipping, having trucks transport customers' products on return trips after delivering the company's products, and other improvements in logistics.

STP is a manufacturer and marketer of tinplate and tin-free steel. Metal One has an 18.68% share in the company, and Nippon Steel has 15.64%. STP was selected for the energy saving award in appreciation of its introduction of a monitoring system for all utilities used at its factory, including water (use and discharge), electricity, and steam, as well as its strict adherence to the plan-do-check-act (PDCA) cycle in its endeavor to achieve energy-saving targets.
