Message from General Manager for CIS

Throughout our history – Sumitomo Corporation was originally founded as The Osaka North Harbour by Sumitomo and other companies in 1919, while Sumitomo's philosophy dates back to the 17th century – Sumitomo Corporation Group has offered comprehensive solutions to our customers, incorporating a wide range of business functions.

Based on the trust formed with our stakeholders and the broad expertise we have acquired, we have created and optimised an integrated value chain in fields such as metal products, infrastructure, ICT, mineral resources, chemical products, food, biomass, automotive and construction machinery.

Currently, we operate through subsidiaries and branches in the Central Eurasia region, namely Kazakhstan, Russia, Uzbekistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. We believe this region has the potential to deliver solutions to the global challenges faced by society today.

The environment is constantly changing, while new social challenges are emerging on a daily basis.

We will turn these challenges into opportunities to materialise sustainable growth and we are committed to continue working towards a better future.
