Steel sheet processing
In May 2001, we transferred our Iron & Steel business to Marubeni-Itochu Steel Inc. (MISI). Since then, MISI has been making its presence felt as a leading trading company in the steel sector, supplying the shipbuilding, automotive, and industrial machinery sectors among others.
In Europe, MISI has established a steel sheet processing centre in Germany, together with CLN Group of Italy, to process high-grade coloured sheet and surface-treated steel sheet for use in flat-screen televisions and other products.
Thus MISI is able to respond more quickly to the swift rise in demand from Japanese electronics manufacturers, who are rapidly expanding their presence in Central Europe.
