Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) is Japan’s largest general trading company (sogo shosha) with over 200 bases of operations in approximately 80 countries worldwide. Together with its over 500 group companies, MC employs a multinational workforce of approximately 54,000 people. MC has long been engaged in business with customers around the world in virtually every industry, including energy, metals, machinery, chemicals, food and general merchandise.
MC seeks to contribute to the enrichment of society through business firmly rooted in principles of fairness and integrity.
Although our activities encompass everything from trading to business investment, the essence of what we do at MC can best be described as focusing on the needs and seeds of customers and society, conceiving business models, and reliably providing functions and services to propel these businesses forward.
For example, in trade, a historical mainstay of MC’s operations, we are able to steadily provide high value-added services by utilizing our frontline businesses to gather information while linking together functions such as logistics, financing, and marketing.
When MC invests in a business, we share risk with our partners and add value to the business by leveraging MC’s organizational strength and global networks to procure necessary business resources.
In addition, we provide optimal solutions for all stages of businessâ€”from development, procurement and production, to logistics and sales. Supporting the realization of these solutions, linking businesses and coordinating customer affiliations are all important MC functions.
Furthermore, MC also anticipates trends in the market and society and takes initiative to develop new business.
At MC, we constantly work to reinvent ourselves and have sought out cutting-edge functions required by businesses. For this purpose, our strong financial resources and risk management capabilities are of course invaluable, but we believe the foresight, initiative and ingenuity of our human resources represent our greatest assets.
Through consistent and dedicated efforts, MC is committed to further strengthening the high level of trust earned from our customers over the years.
