Chairman of Kanpoh Steel Group Chairman and CEO
Kanpoh Steel Co.,Ltd

At Kanpoh Steel, we currently operate in two areas of business: as a steel service center where we create and process steel sheets to our customers’ required specifications and as a steel manufacturer where we manufacture and sell our own products such as steel building materials and metal packaging materials.
As a steel service center, we are proud to process approximately 1.3 million tons of sheet metal, mostly for major automotive manufacturers. This amounts to over one-tenth of the approximately 12 million tons distributed annually in Japan. As a steel manufacturer, our steel furring, which is used for building materials in walls and ceilings, is highly rated and has enabled us to acquire a top-level share in Japan. As a corporation that supports manufacturing, the foundation of industry in Japan, our presence is like no other.
Our strengths lie in our comprehensiveness and expertise, which allow us to source everything from base materials to products within our group, our ability to adapt to diverse regions due to our nationwide presence, and our agility as an independent company.
Please watch Kanpoh Steel with anticipation as we continue to build upon our strengths and reinforce our specializations while taking on new challenges.


Our entire group supports coordination
between the core parties of the industry.
