Sendzimir Japan, Ltd. was established in 1962 as a joint venture company of three corporations: Iwai Sangyo Co., Ltd. (now known as Sojitz Corporation), T. Sendzimir, Inc., USA and Hitachi Ltd. (now the rolling machinery division of Hitachi Ltd. known as Primetals Technologies Japan, Ltd.(Formerly Mitsubishi-Hitachi Metals Machinery, Inc.))
‘Sendzimir Japan, Ltd.’ was named after the inventor; Dr. Tadeusz Sendzimir.
Since the foundation, we have supplied a lot of Sendzimir mills to the field of the strip cold rolling of metals such as stainless steel, special steel, copper and copper alloys and silicon steel etc.
Such Sendzimir mills were designed based on T. Sendzimir Inc.’s rolling technology as well as technology newly improved and developed by Sendzimir Japan, Ltd. and Primetals Technologies Japan, Ltd.(Formerly Mitsubishi-Hitachi Metals Machinery, Inc.)
We are proud that, thanks to our attitude of always having a challenge spirit and faithfully adhering to our promise of providing high quality, we have been able to continue business for almost half century, exclusively in the field of Sendzimir mills.
We are very much obliged for the support you have extended to us.
We intend to remain devoted to offering products that satisfy our customers, by maintaining our feeling of gratitude and tackling ever higher challenges.
In recent years, in an era of digital transformation (DX), electric automobiles (EV)/ weight reduction, clean energy for decarbonization and energy efficiency improvement, a demand for harder, thinner, and higher precision rolling materials is rapidly increasing.
We will keep contributing to the benefit of society by supplying high quality products through the Sendzimir mill business.
