Marine & Heavy Industries Division
The Heavy Industries and Marine Division handles a diverse range of products for the domestic primary materials industry (mainly ferrous and non-ferrous) and the shipping industry, including general merchant ships, gas carriers such as LNG/LPG carriers, and work vessels for offshore wind power installations.
We offer a wide range of products, from high-quality products manufactured in Europe and Japan to products with high levels of cost-performance manufactured in Asia, and we deal with customers throughout the world via activities involving the installation of new technologies and introducing them to new products.
Providing total solutions based on extensive experience ―― Steelmaking plants
We deliver various types of facilities and equipment, and peripheral equipment to blast furnace mills in Japan, their group companies and other major electric furnace manufacturers.
We provide solutions in alignment with customer needs, including upgrading aging equipment, streamlining, capacity enhancement, and environmental measures, etc., and we are very proud of the extensive experience and results that we have accumulated over the course of many years. Amid the recent business environment in which customers wish to create a carbon-free society as swiftly as possible and in which attention is being paid to advances in DX technologies, we are introducing new European technologies for iron making that contribute to decarbonization and providing suggestions on using DX technology for improving work and maintenance efficiency and extending the lifespans of facilities.
We have also turned our attention to the field of railway transportation overseas to reduce CO2 emissions, and are currently moving ahead with our aim to provide high-efficiency operations using DX technology.

Sale of marine equipment and engine component-related equipment
A ship, a steel object from a hundred to several hundred meters long and dozens of meters wide and deep, is spectacular from the outside, but the inside is also quite impressive.
A roaring, huge engine. Pipes and ducts meandering around the hull like blood vessels. And the myriad devices that control navigation and cargo handling. Ships are often compared to factories, but they are by no means simple factories.
Our company is a leader in the marine and engine component-related equipment business, a field that has been part of our business landscape for over half a century. Our customers are shipyards, shipping companies, and engine manufacturers not only in Japan but across the globe. We support big international projects ranging from gas carriers such as LNG and LPG carriers to new-fuel vessels including LNG-fueled ships, and work ships for offshore wind power installations.
We anticipate the current trends in shipping and shipbuilding, such as equipment and engine components for new-fuel vessels in response to recent tightening of environmental regulations, and digitalization efforts, and constantly introduce the latest products and technologies to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
