Gathering Expectations, Fulfilling Expectations, Beyond Expectations That is SAN-ETSU METALS. / Managing Director Hiroyuki Tsuriya

SAN-ETSU METALS Co., Ltd. is the largest brass rod and brass wire supplier in Japan. We are not only a material supplier but also a manufacturer of brass products using our own brass materials. We forge and machine at our precision plant and Dalian San-Etsu Precision Parts Co., Ltd. in Dalian and our products are highly evaluated by our customers. Also, we now have sales bases in Taiwan, Shanghai, Dalian and Shenzhen establishing a firm ground and presence as a top brand of Japan-made brass products in China. CK SAN-ETSU Co., Ltd. is a non-operating holding company listed on the stock exchanges of the Nagoya Stock Exchange, and the mother company of SAN-ETSU METALS.

Our technical capability has a reputation for its quality. The “BZ series”, our new and revolutionary alloy with no use of lead and cadmium, is truly environmentally friendly and widely applied to the products in electronic, electric and automotive industries.

There are clear reasons for being the top maker of the industry. SAN-ETSU METALS was established in December of 1937 and was previously called San-Etsu Metals Industry Co., Ltd. (the precursor of Takaoka Office). In 1984, San-Etsu Metals Industry Co., Ltd. merged with Hokuriku Kinzoku Co., Ltd. (the precursor of Tonami Office) and became SAN-ETSU METALS. Also in April of 2000, Sumitomo Metal Mining co., Ltd. transferred their brass wire business to SAN-ETSU METALS. Furthermore, in October of 2007, all business of Shin Nitto Kinzoku Co., Ltd. was transferred to SAN-ETSU METALS. In summary, SAN-ETSU METALS Co., Ltd. is a leading company build though the integration of major four companies of brass rod and wire.

Continuously into the future, we will take an advantage of occupying the top share in Japan and maximize the benefit from economies of scale, while making our very best effort into improving our state-of-the-art technology and being a company which can gather customer expectations, fulfill those expectations, and go beyond the expectations.
