Corporate Profile

Corporate Profile

The history of the former Mitsui & Co.* in Germany started in 1899 when Sadaichiro Takemura, the first representative of the former Mitsui & Co.*, opened an office in Hamburg.
The current Mitsui & Co. Deutschland GmbH was formally established in 1954 and ever since has been actively promoting the business. In 1962, Mitsui Germany moved its headquarters from Hamburg to Düsseldorf. Since then, numerous, diversified fields of activity have been steered from this center. Today Mitsui Germany has two branch offices and one representative office in Eastern Europe.

We are particularly successful in our main business areas ranging from chemicals and plastics to steel, infrastructure projects and mobility. Our annual turnover amounts to approximately € 1.2 bil. and the number of our staff is 153 in total, 130 of them in Düsseldorf.

Mitsui & Co. Deutschland GmbH is a core member of the Mitsui & Co. Europe Plc group of companies. We are part of the Europe Bloc headquartered in London, one of the regional organizations of Mitsui & Co., Ltd.
Mitsui & Co., Ltd. is one of the world's most diversified comprehensive trading, investment, and service enterprises. Headquartered in Tokyo, Mitsui maintains a global network of 126 offices in 62 countries and regions. Mitsui’s business is focused on growth through trading, business management and project development. Based on the knowledge we have accumulated in each of these areas, we create new value by combining our diverse functions with our global network. Our ever-evolving core business functions include marketing, logistics, finance, risk management, business management as well as digital transformation.

We will continue to respond seriously and sincerely to the trust and expectations of our stakeholders, and to contribute through our wide-ranging business activities both to sustainable global social development, and to the solution of global-scale issues.

 (*) 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 by the order of GHQ in 1947, so legally speaking, there has been no continuation between the former Mitsui & Co. and the current Mitsui & Co.
