New soar as the Hanwa Kogyo Group

More than half a century has passed since Toho Metals was established in 1954 by founder Akira Kako as a distribution company dealing in stainless steel and special steel.
During this time, we have responded to the needs of our customers while remaining aware of our role as a pioneer in the distribution of stainless steel materials.
In April 2023, aiming for further growth, we restarted as a group subsidiary of Hanwa Kogyo Co., Ltd., a major trading company.

Japanese stainless steel manufacturing has a world-class track record of high quality and production volume, thanks to its excellent technology and development capabilities as a material for household and industrial use.
In addition, in terms of demand, it is widely used in everything from daily necessities to all kinds of industrial fields, and has the potential to further expand in the future all over the world.

As demand for stainless steel is expected to increase significantly in the coming era of environmental emphasis and new energy, Toho Metals will carry out bold reforms to fulfill its social mission and respond to changing customer needs.

Furthermore, as a trusted stainless steel distribution company, we will continue to cherish the origins of our founding while achieving new growth.
