The Osaka Steel Group, as the principal EAF steelmaker within the Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Group, supports creation of comfortable lifestyles by supplying various industrial fields with a wide range of steel products, including angles, channels, bars, flat bars, light rails, and elevator guide rails.
We are also working to enhance coexistence with communities by promoting efficient processes for steel resources recycling, and by contributing to environmental conservation and development of a recycling-oriented society through saving energy and resources.
The Osaka Steel Group pursues development of new and high-functionality products to meet customer needs, to further improve product appeal across the range of items in which we dominate domestic markets, such as elevator guide rails and steel tower materials, and, with a view to further expanding opportunities to have users specify “Dai-Tetsu (Osaka Steel),” to develop new markets, not only at home but also overseas.
The Osaka Steel Group is working to achieve optimization of production and cooperative effects (synergies) across the entire group by making full use of the location and characteristics/strengths of each production base located in the Kanto, Kansai and Kyushu areas. We will also continue to implement comprehensive measures for energy saving and productivity improvement to further reinforce our cost competitiveness.
Osaka Steel established PT. KRAKATAU OSAKA STEEL (KOS) as a joint venture with the Indonesian national steelmaker, PT. KRAKATAU STEEL (Persero) Tbk with a view to capturing expanding demand for steel materials.
KOS is the only steelmaker in Indonesia with combined rolling mill facilities (combined rolling mills for manufacturing medium- to small-sized shaped steel and deformed bars), boasting high productivity and excellent product quality/appeal. Making the most of its advantages, such as stable supply of high-quality steel billets from Osaka Steel Group, KOS aims to further develop in line with its slogan “Grow together with Indonesia.”
The EAF steelmaking industry producing ordinary steel, to which Osaka Steel belongs, is characterized by significant fluctuations in market prices for the main raw material; i. e. scrap metal and major manufactured steel products, whereby the business results of each company are substantially influenced. However, the Company has developed a sound financial structure toward enduring stability of our business foundation. As a result of steady, efficient management, we have been operating in profit for more than 15 consecutive years, successfully building a sound financial structure as shown in such factors as a high ratio of shareholders' equity to total assets.
