Company Profile

Company Profile

Sansho began more than 50 years ago with a desire to be special. The goal was to be not just another broker of commodities and raw materials but, rather, to be an organization with the capabilities necessary to work together with customers. And help to solve the many complex problems involved in satisfying individual needs.

Sansho has succeeded in this role as a problem-solving partner. Today, Sansho provides firsthand information, backed by solid research and development in the company laboratory facilities.

Clear-cut answers are provided in the form of ultimately useful products of superior quality.

Products tailored to the unique requirements of individual customers.
In short, Sansho gives customers additional value by providing that extra “finishing touch” which makes the difference between a Sansho product and just any product.

Sansho resources also include a close-knit net-work that covers Japan, yet which allows Sansho to maintain close contact with end users. And Sansho is well prepared to coordinate business transactions both internationally and locally.

No problem is too small or too big for Sansho.

How may we best serve you?
