Who We Are
“Sumitomo Corporation (Central Eurasia) LLC” started its operation in 2011 as wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation (Japan). Sumitomo Corporation (Central Eurasia) LLC has its Head Quarter located in Moscow and branch offices in St. Petersburg and Vladivostok. We work closely with Sumitomo Corporation (Japan) branches in Kiev (Ukraine), Astana (Kazakhstan), Almaty (Kazakhstan), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).
The establishment of Sumitomo Corporation (Central Eurasia) LLC enabled us to perform new commercial activities that were not possible for us as the Representative Office of Sumitomo Corporation (Japan). We aim to strengthen these commercial activities and provide our service to all customers as a member of Sumitomo Corporation (SC) Group.
Our target is to become a sound and profitable self-financed company in the nearest future. For this purpose, we have to develop our business by finding and creating suitable projects for our investments, our clients, our materials and our equipment in order to increase trade under our medium-term management plan.
Also through these projects we want to find good partners, develop new relations and find opportunities to invest domestically and internationally. This is not an easy job, but being challenging it is worth doing for us. Of course, we have to keep thorough compliance as essential base of our corporate governance.
Since we started local company we base our work on the principle of 3C’s which are ‘Change’, ‘Communication’, and ‘Challenge’. For unless we challenge ourselves, and try something new, no changes will take place and no communication will work. Challenge is a catalyst for the other ‘Cs,’ that facilitates the implementation of effective improvements and reconfirms our commitment to be what we want to be.
Message from the President
In January 2011, Sumitomo Corporation Central Eurasia LLC, wholly owned by Sumitomo Corporation (SC), Japan, announced to start the commercial activities, based on the operation by Liaison (representative) office of SC Japan over 40 years in USSR, Russia and CIS. The Head office is located in Moscow, Russia with branches located in St. Petersburg, Vladivostok, Kiev (Ukraine), Astana (Kazakhstan), Almaty (Kazakhstan), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).
Throughout our business history (Corporation established in 1919 while origins of Sumitomo founder dates back to 17th century), we have been offering comprehensive solutions incorporating a wide range of business functions to our customers. Based on the trust formed with customers and the broad expertise we have acquired as a result, we have been creating and optimizing an integrated value chain, from metal products business, infrastructure projects development, ICT investments, mineral resources development and chemical business.
The environment surrounding us is constantly changing. We are turning these changes into opportunities, and these opportunities into continuous growth. We are also committed to working toward the continued development of the world economy and the international community.
CIS is the largest multi supra-national community in the world, by land mass, with abundant mineral and energy resources, powerful industrial production and excellent human assets. It has the potential to become a major consumer territory and is one of SC group’s important overseas markets. SC has been establishing a global network, including Americas, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa over the years, and the addition of SC Central Eurasia will enhance its global presence and capability to develop and deliver superior products and services in CIS countries.
