Our Business

Light Metals

We carry out the global procurement and supply of aluminum alloys used in vehicle engines and transmission cases, and aluminum alloy raw materials.

Aluminum alloys are light and strong, and have played a major role in making cars lighter, contributing to improved fuel efficiency and exhaust gas reduction. Aluminum alloys are low cost and recyclable, and as such they are of increasing importance.

We supply base metals, which are imported from Russia and used as the raw materials for aluminum alloys, mainly to secondary alloy manufacturers and die cast manufacturers, as well as to the Honda Group. In addition, we handle scrap raw materials in Japan that come from scrapped cars and scrapped electrical appliances. We carry out transactions with a wide range of customers.

We will utilize our information gathering strengths, brought about through the development of global bases, in order to provide flexible services that meet the needs of the market.

Characteristics

We supply our customers with liquid aluminum (molten aluminum) from aluminum manufacturing plants built in the vicinity of our customers.

There is no need for our customers to re-melt aluminum products when they use the aluminum, and this contributes to reducing energy and facilities costs, as well as achieving major reductions in the burden placed on the environment.
