Stable Supplies from various Sources

Our main business is the procurement and sale of coal to various customers in Japan and overseas, primarily companies in the cement, paper making, chemical, and IPP industries. One of our strengths is our ability to secure stable supplies of coal, made possible because our shareholders Mitsui & Co., Ltd. and Sumitomo Corporation own concessions to coal mines and have networks for the procurement of coal from a broad range of supplier countries, mainly from Australia, Indonesia, and Russia. In addition, we provide with information on coal-producing countries and producers, services for research and planning related to overseas coal mine development as well as investment and financing, develop new sources of coal to meet customer needs, and negotiate contracts with suppliers on behalf of customers.
