Toyota Tsusho Corporation
Toyota Tsusho was established in 1948. As the sole general trading company in the Toyota Group, they strengthened their overseas operations in the 1980s and 1990s and expanded around their core automotive business.
Thereafter, they began to expand non-automotive businesses. They merged with the trading companies Kasho in 2000 and Tomen in 2006 to accelerate their growth into such new business fields as infrastructure, chemicals, and food.
Since 2010, they have expanded the scope and honed the capabilities of existing businesses while accelerating investments in new business fields, such as bluefin tuna aquaculture and overseas hospital management. In 2012, they made the largest investment in their history in CFAO, a French trading company with a strong presence in Africa.
In this way, they are achieving sustainable growth by widening their business field.
