About Us

Message from the President & CEO

Sadao Hisada

    Welcome to Mitsui & Co. Italia S.p.A.

    • Mitsui & Co. Italia S.p.A. was founded in 1969 in Milan as the Italian branch of Mitsui & Co., Ltd., one of the leading trading and investment firms in Japan. The first “Mitsui” liaison office in Milan was opened in 1880 by the former Mitsui & Co., when silk yarn where imported from Japan to be supplied to northern Italian textile manufacturers. * Legally speaking, there has been no continuation between the former Mitsui & Co. and the current Mitsui & Co.

    • Now we live in an era of continued challenging situations. As “Challenge & Innovation” is Mitsui’s historic motto, we are always delighted to be at your service through providing variously differentiated expertise and resources that may connect the world so as to develop or strengthen your business in future. We believe there are countless business opportunities in Italy partnering with and becoming a contributing part of Italian companies.

    • We see huge and fast transformation and transition in European lifestyle and industries from 15 of our offices in 13 countries with 435 employees (and many more in Mitsui group companies) just in Europe, out of 63 countries globally. Just viewing Italy and Europe through our key initiatives shared with Mitsui’s global headquarters, which are (1)Global Energy Transition, (2)Industrial Business Solutions and (3)Wellness Ecosystem Creation, we cannot help recognising numerous Centres of Excellence which are sophisticatedly considered, planned and implemented in Italy and Europe.
