Aiming to Be the Global & Niche Top.

Since our founding in 1907, the Japan Steel Works, Ltd. (JSW) has consistently addressed the needs of the times and of society with technology. The worth of our company is measured by the technologies and skills we have built up during this time, and by our deeply instilled insistence on improving these and employing them in monozukuri (good manufacturing practices), yielding outstanding products on which society functions.

The world economy is experiencing changes of many kinds. A common need of both mature and newly emerging nations in this situation is obtaining an adequate and stable supply of energy while preserving the environment. JSW is a global corporation carrying out steel and energy products business, with products in electric power, oil, natural gas, and other energy fields, as well as industrial machinery products business with a broad lineup centering on equipment for plastics processing. We are contributing to the further development of society by meeting its needs with our existing proprietary technologies and new technological development.

As a company built on monozukuri, we strive to advance our skills on many different fronts including manufacturing, design, technology, and sales and marketing, while making concerted, persistent efforts to solve our customers′ problems through close coordination across each of these areas. The aim of our global corporate group as a whole is to carry out our management strategy measures faithfully and become the Global & Niche Top, able to meet the changing demands of society and our customers.

At the same time we are committed to pursuing management that fulfills our corporate social responsibility as a member of society, aware that upholding high standards of corporate ethics, preserving the environment, and ensuring workplace safety are essential to becoming a trusted manufacturing company.

We welcome the continued support and encouragement of our stakeholders as we go forward.
