In March 2002, Mitsubishi Corporation, the world's largest trading firm, and Sojitz Corporation, another company with a strong presence in the steel industry, agreed to merge their metal divisions and create a new company incorporated in Japan as Metal One Corporation. In October 2003, Metal One America, Inc., a subsidiary of Metal One Corporation, was established to serve the needs of the North American market. Built on the Sogo Shosha (Japanese trading company) foundation, Metal One leverages centuries of domain expertise to help its customers achieve their growth potential while simultaneously reducing their input costs. Similarly, our supply partners benefit from access to new markets and customers to enhance their market reach and bottom line results.
