Message from the President
What can we, Japanese, be proud of towards the world? Isn't it the passion toward "Monozukuri" (making things or manufacturing)?
We, NAKAGAWA SPECIAL STEEL INC., has worked on “Monozukuri” sincerely as a trading firm since its establishment in 1924 and has continued to offer solutions to our major customers in Japan and overseas by coordinating “materials” and “technologies” sticking to the quality of services.
What are the missions for a trading firm like us? I firmly believe that they are "creation of business through providing solutions to problems and requirements," which go far beyond areas of just procuring materials and commodities.
The reason can be found there, why we, who have made continuous growth in line with the progress of "Monozukuri" in Japan and overseas, have been able to build up confidence from our customers for such a long time.
For one, we have high professional expertise with respect to special steel. In addition, we can offer extensive services, making active use of networks of technology and production in Japan and overseas. The synergy of these two elements, I believe, has given our customers confidence that "Nakagawa will solve it in one way or another."
We can say the same with regard to establishing off-shore production sites. We coordinate all the stages of production, that is, from procurement of materials, processing and up until delivery, so that products from these sites can ensure the same "Japan-quality," namely, the quality , quantity and delivery which are by no means inferior to those coming from Japanese domestic factories. I am very proud to say that our performance with "frontier-spirits" can make it happen under such circumstances where everything has to be built up from scratch.
If we may use a different way of expression, we can say that our work can be positioned as one shouldering the creativity of "Monozukuri." As an extension of such work philosophy, we took part in the re-development project of Tennoz Isle as "an urban development project," in which we shared a role in creating a unique community.
We also provided the ground floor of "Tennoz Central Tower" as an "Art Hall" which offers a place for artists to introduce their works. Thus, we treasure environments where "creativity" and "imagination" circulate.
All what I have mentioned up until now shows you only the "form" of NAKAGAWA SPECIAL STEEL INC. at this moment. We, NAKAGAWA SPECIAL STEEL INC. will evolve in keeping pace with the development of society and the environment as an "enterprise to create new value and businesses for industry."
You can be sure that we will do our best to live up to your expectations.
