We, Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., former Ship and Ocean Project Hq. of Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., made a fresh start in April 2018, due to the transition to the holding company structure by company split.
Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. celebrated its centenary in November last year. As its corporate name shows, Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. traces its origins back to shipbuilding and its centenary also marks 100 years in the shipbuilding business.
In rapidly changing global conditions, issues surrounding the ocean such as logistics, resources, the environment and security are also emerging. We will overcome this time of change by utilizing the shipbuilding technologies we have built up over a century with capacity to execute strategy quickly, which we achieved through these structural reforms.
We have various affiliated companies that operate in a wide range of categories, including technology research, ship repair, and gas engineering, and we will harness our overall strengths to build the Mitsui brand, to provide core technologies and services that are always a step ahead, to meet the expectations of our customers in the shipbuilding and engineering business fields, to enhance value and to contribute to the people and the society. We hope to have continuous support to the future activities of newly formed Mitsui E&S Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
