Utilizing the Combined Strengths of
the Group to Create New Value

Takahiro Tanimoto

Chairman of Kanpoh Steel Holdings Co., Ltd.

Since our founding in 1949, we have expanded our business fields in response to customer demands, including the sale of construction materials such as steel furrings for buildings, interiors, and distribution, with our core being in steel distribution and manufacture.

In addition, to further strengthen the Group’s combined strength and competitiveness, we formed a holdings company in 2019 and built a system to allow ongoing sustainable management. At present, we are bringing together the technical abilities of Kanpoh Steel and our other Group companies and manufacturing network, from Tohoku to Kyushu, to open up new markets and develop new high added-value products.

We shall accelerate this move even more, aiming to create new value for the Kanpoh Holdings Group through the creation of new businesses and management strategies that match our customers’ desires and needs.


Our entire group supports coordination between
the core parties of the industry.
