A manufacturer and trader, Sankin Corporation is a major steel provider for many industries, including the automotive sector.
“We supply our products mainly for safety-critical automotive parts – for example, handles, brakes or the suspension, which are closely related to human safety.”
Takaharu Den, President, Sankin Corporation
A company with over 77 years of experience, Sankin is a leading Japanese producer of cold-drawn steel pipes and stainless steel pipes, chiefly supplying manufacturers in the automotive, industrial machinery, construction machinery, shipbuilding and water supply industries, among others.
The firm also operates as a trader and wholesaler for other steel pipe producers in Japan. If there is a request from customers, Sankin always delivers on time in accordance with their needs.
Sankin’s steel pipes guarantee the high performance their customers depend on. “We supply our products mainly for safety-critical automotive parts,” says president Takaharu Den. “For example, handles, brakes or the suspension, which are closely related to human safety. Making an automobile requires very strict quality standards – and Sankin meets those requirements.”
Mr. Den adds: “We also have a steel equipment division manufacturing various steel products such as storage units, multi-story parking facilities, greenhouses, stairs, etc. Since we have two big pillars of the business, one can compensate for the other in uncertain times.”
Having previously bolstered its network of steel production sites with overseas plants in Indonesia and Thailand, Sankin has now also set up a Mexican venture, PROSANKIN, a state-of-the-art manufacturer of cold-drawn mechanical tubing, specializing in DOM, Cold Drawn Seamless, and SAE J525 products. PROSANKIN has a highly focused goal of being the “Go-To” manufacturer for clients across North America.
“Currently, our international focus is PROSANKIN,” Mr. Den says. “We’ve just started the business and we’re committed to taking the right path to benefit our customers. As we continue to make progress in having a world-class and fully operational facility in Mexico, expansion into the North American market becomes attainable.”
