MITSUI DE MÉXICO, S. DE R.L. DE C.V.
The former Mitsui was created in 1876 in Japan, in order to develop the foreign trade of that country.
In 1910, three employees appointed by the New York office of Mitsui arrived to Mexico and opened the first office in the building located on Guatemala Street at 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.
During the most critical times of the Mexican Revolution, it is telling there was an event in which the members of Mitsui de México helped the then President, Francisco I. Madero and his family, to take refuge in the Japanese Legation that served as Consulate.
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.
