Mitsubishi Corporation

Chemicals Group:Commodity Chemicals Division B

In the Commodity Chemicals Division B, we primarily trade chemical commodities such as methanol, ethanol, ammonia, chemical fertilizers and inorganic chemicals. We also make investments to reinforce and complement these transactions.

The products traded by the division are primarily those produced using natural resources as its raw material such as natural gas, mining products, and agricultural products. MC secures competitive products through its business investments and long-term contracts and supplements this with products procured through trading. Through such efforts, we strive to offer value in our supply of these products to growing markets and our customers.

Strategy

While working to strengthen our trading capabilities, which include enhancing our logistics capabilities for our primary products, another focus in our efforts to achieve growth in the mid- to long-term is to secure competitive supply sources of raw materials through business investments.

Our large-scale investments include Metanol de Oriente, METOR, S.A., a producer of methanol in Venezuela, and Fosfatos del Pacifico S.A., a phosphate mining business in Peru.
