Corporate Profile



Mitsui & Co., Ltd. is one of the largest trading and investment companies in the world today with over 42,000 staff (consolidated).

In 1891, the former Mitsui & Co.* was the first Japanese trading company to establish a presence in Singapore in the form of a small representative office mainly importing coal. The former Mitsui & Co. was disbanded in 1947, then the present Mitsui & Co., Ltd. was created through the unification of several new companies, many formed by persons who worked for the former Mitsui & Co. In 1954, operations began as the Singapore branch of the current Mitsui & Co., Ltd. On 1st April 2007, after operating as the Singapore branch of the current Mitsui & Co., Ltd. for numerous years, the Company was established as the Asia Pacific regional headquarters, Mitsui & Co. (Asia Pacific) Pte. Ltd. The Company has now progressed to being a “Sogo-Shosha” (General Trading Company) with a highly diversified business and investment portfolio in the Asia Pacific region.

Leveraging our global network and information resources, Mitsui & Co. (Asia Pacific) Pte. Ltd. operates in 9 business areas including: Iron & Steel Products, Mineral & Metal Resources, Infrastructure Projects, Mobility, Chemicals, Energy, Food & Retail, Consumer Service and Innovation & Corporate Development. The regional headquarters in Singapore manages the overall business activities in the Asia Pacific region through 26 offices in 15 countries.

At the current Mitsui, we aim to become a global business enabler that can meet the needs of our customers throughout the world. Based on the trust forged with customers and the broad expertise we have acquired as a result, we have been creating and optimizing an integrated value chain, from resource development through to logistics and retailing.

We are strongly focused on developing our Asia Pacific business as part of a broader global strategy, to fulfill our vision of “contributing to the well-being of the world economy as a company with true global presence”.

* The current Mitsui & Co., Ltd. was established through mergers of the various new companies that had been established after the disbandment of the former Mitsui & Co., so legally speaking, there has been no continuation between the former Mitsui & Co. and the current Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
