Supporting society with a wide range of products centered on rebars
The steel minimill business, wherein steel scraps generated in each region are recycled locally into products, is a business model of local production for local consumption.The Kyoei Steel Group produces steel products at four domestic production bases, supporting local social infrastructure.
No.1 market share for rebar in Japan
Concrete reinforcing bars (rebars), the mainstay of our group, are fundamental materials for construction and civil engineering work, and will continue to play an important role in supporting society. In Japan, the four regions of Kanto, Chubu, Kansai, Chushikoku (Chugoku and Shikoku) and Kyushu are major areas of demand for rebars where large cities are located, accounting for approximately 70% of domestic demand.
The Kyoei Steel Group is the only steel minimill company that has production and sale bases in all the four regions, and maintains the largest domestic market share of concrete reinforcing bars.*
