Chief Operating Officer

Hideo Minato

Mitsui & Co. Italia S.p.A was established in 1969 in Milan as a branch office of Mitsui & Co. Ltd. Since then, we have been creating and developing various businesses, in a broad range of industries from Fashion to Energy, including Chemicals, Infrastructure, Machinery etc, in close collaboration with our partners, located in Italy, Japan and many other countries.

Our core strengths are people, global-networking and long-term business strategy including investment. We are proud that we are a leading Japanese trading firm in Italy and we work hard and continue our ‘challenge & innovation' to make tomorrow even better.

Today we live in a time of turbulent change. Italy, as well as most of other European countries, is involved in a period of financial trouble and challenges. On the other hand, Italy has a solid industrial infrastructure and Italian people are famous for its creativity and passion. There are huge business opportunities for Italy and Italian companies and we believe that our solution-providing functions for globalized business are required especially at time of change.

It is exciting for me to lead the company at the time of change. I am fully committed to do my best, so that we can create and develop many important businesses, which contribute to the property of the world and make people happy.

We would like to thank you for visiting our site. We are looking forward to work with you.

Sincerely yours,
