Marubeni America Corporation, which we also refer to as "MAC", is a general trading company, engaged as an intermediary, importer/exporter, facilitator or broker in various types of trade between and among business enterprises and countries. We are the largest overseas subsidiary of the Japanese "sogo shosha" called Marubeni Corporation, which originated in Osaka in 1858. But unlike many other businesses of our size and scope, MAC has few fixed assets, relying instead on the creativity, ingenuity and innovation of our talented and experienced people, our intensive information gathering skills and our extensive financial resources and acumen.
MAC trades in a broad range of commodities, agricultural goods, machinery, energy products, and natural resources for our own account, and on behalf of our clients. In addition, we are more than just global traders and brokers. We also act as major financiers, investors and large-scale organizers. We play a vital role in the logistics of transactions, such as the global movement of products. We assume and manage risk involved in transactions and act as business consultants, using our vast trade experience in new business development. We provide many specialized services, including sales support, transportation, insurance, storage, financing and leasing, engineering and construction service, and traffic and logistics planning. We are also the holding company of, or significant investor in, a number of major companies within our specialty industries.
We are headquartered in New York City, with several other U.S. locations and approximately 40 subsidiary and affiliated companies across the United States, Canada and Mexico. We can also access a network of over 125 Marubeni Group offices and about 450 associated companies worldwide, all of which provide Marubeni offices and affiliates with up-to-the-minute information on commodities, commerce and finance. Through this extensive global network, Marubeni America Corporation is able to facilitate complex projects and transactions, and can assist you in expanding your present business or in identifying and developing new business opportunities.
Marubeni America Corporation is "America's Ambassador" and "front line" for the businesses of Marubeni Corporation charged with maximizing value for Marubeni Group and its shareholders by capturing the world’s economic growth while contributing to the social, economic development and betterment of people’s lives.
Marubeni America Corporation's mission is to identify investment opportunities focused on creating integration opportunities across the Americas, grow our trading activities and to provide expert services and solutions by leveraging Marubeni Group’s resources, expertise, governance and leadership dedicated to the continuous development and growth of Marubeni Group operations both local and abroad.
The corporate activities of Marubeni can be broadly divided into three types: Corporate Management Activities including investments in various types of projects; Social Responsibility Activities for responsible conduct as a corporate citizen and contributions to society; and Environmental Preservation Activities for the protection of our planet. We believe that balancing the results of these three types of activities against our business results is essential so we can be a company that can achieve sustainable growth while co-existing and prospering with society. Such a harmonious relationship with society cannot be achieved through the activities of the Marubeni Group alone. Ongoing cooperation with stakeholders is essential. By pursuing the interests and satisfaction of the various stakeholders, and by earning their trust, Marubeni is building the foundations for a stable and sustainable corporate group.
