President's Message

We are a specialized trading company handling a broad range of metals and mineral resources as part of the Mitsubishi Corporation Group. The “RtM” in our
company name stands for Resource to Market, and that is precisely what we are all about. It represents our driving business principle which is to connect customers with suppliers of metals and mineral resources in the best possible way.

The business environment surrounding our company is becoming more uncertain year by year due to the rise of geopolitical risks, climate change, and the advance in digitalization, and changes are becoming harder to predict and faster. However, we believe it has made the metals and mineral resources that support our lives all the more important. Raw materials for steel and stainless steel, copper for electric wiring, aluminium for lightweight automobiles, nickel and lithium for rechargeable batteries in electric vehicles, precious metals needed for a carbon-neutral society, and more are all indispensable in Japan, a nation with scarce natural resources. It is our mission to provide a stable supply of those resources to the market and conduct our corporate activities with the belief that we should contribute to developing a sustainable society while simultaneously aiming to achieve economic value, environmental value and social value for our business.

Under these circumstances, I would like to introduce three things that I think are important.

〇 to actively reach out to players in the market to gain firsthand information .
〇 to have a broader insight across different industries.
〇 to create a culture that encourages and praises employees to take the first step forward to challenge the status quo.

All of the above are basic conduct guidelines, but I believe that they are becoming more important especially amid uncertain and complex business environment.

In such environment, we will think "What should our company's new direction be?" and "What should the growth strategy, sustainability strategy, and DX strategy be?" together as one toward the next stage of growth, and will continue providing an array of added-value services to precisely meet the needs of our customers.
We appreciate your continued patronage.
