About Us

Corporate Profile


In 1913, First Representative Office of the former Mitsui & Co. was established in Mexico City.

In that time, the main businesses of Mitsui de México were the Mexican cotton exportations, and the imports into Mexico of fertilizers and miscellaneous merchandise required in the country.

In 1955, to resume business with Mexico, Mitsui was established as a Mexican company in Mexicali, and then, in 1964, transferred to Mexico City to solve the needs of the business evolution.

In those days, the main businesses were similar to the original ones, such as cotton exports, and the sale of fertilizers and miscellaneous items; then, they changed drastically into a different kind of business, reflecting the industrial growth of Japan, and the change of the economic structure in Mexico.

Mitsui & Co. has currently known how to consolidate several industries worldwide, contributing to promote the economic growth of the countries where it has operations.
