Toyota Tsusho was established in 1948. As the sole general trading company in the Toyota Group, we strengthened our overseas operations in the 1980s and 1990s and expanded around our core automotive business.
Thereafter, we began to expand non-automotive businesses. We merged with the trading companies Kasho in 2000 and Tomen in 2006 to accelerate our growth into such new business fields as infrastructure, chemicals, and food. Since 2010, we 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, we made the largest investment in our history in CFAO, a French trading company with a strong presence in Africa.
In this way, we are achieving sustainable growth by widening our business field.
Toyota Tsusho is a member of the Toyota Group, which comprises 17 companies: Toyota Motor, Toyota Industries, Aichi Steel, JTEKT, Toyota Auto Body, Aisin Seiki, Denso, Toyota Boshoku, Towa Real Estate, Toyota Central R&D Labs, Toyota Motor East Japan, Toyoda Gosei, Hino Motors, Daihatsu Motor, Toyota Home, Toyota Motor Kyushu, and Toyota Tsusho.
As the Toyota Group's sole general trading company, we gather information and promote the development of new business from a global perspective. As automotive professionals with unique capabilities and know-how, we strive to lead the Toyota Group in the challenge to develop the evolution of next-generation mobility to contribute to the development of both society and the Toyota Group.

Toyota Tsusho's business spans a wide range of fields. We have organized our business under seven operating divisions: Metals, Global Parts & Logistics, Automotive, Machinery, Energy & Project, Chemicals & Electronics, Food & Consumer Services, Africa. Though different in the products and services they provide, these divisions share the same goal of creating and delivering diverse value by developing unique functions from a dedicated customer-oriented approach. Each division maintains highly specialized expertise and leverages unique capabilities in its respective field. At the same time, the divisions combine their know-how and capabilities to generate synergy and create new value.
A global network is a lifeline for a general trading company dependent on extensive information gathering capabilities to collect intelligence and generate business.
Toyota Tsusho does business with customers around the world through a global network spanning more than 90 countries and 970 group companies. We build business from a local perspective by understanding the culture and history of each country and region, and taking an "on-site, hands-on, in-touch" approach attuned to local needs and driven by talented local staff.
We are dedicated to learning from local communities and growing with them in our effort to contribute to each country and region as a truly global company.
At Toyota Tsusho, we believe that CSR activities and business activities are one and the same. We carry out compliance and environmental protection as part of the basic CSR activities required of all companies. Additionally, we take strategic CSR activities intended to solve social issues and make significant contributions to communities. These include the use and recycling of renewable energies, medical and nursing care businesses, and power generation.
Additionally, throughout the world more than 970 companies comprising the Toyota Tsusho Group actively take part in volunteer activities linked to the themes of the environment, welfare, and education as a way to contribute to local communities in their own ways.
