President Message
Representative Director Takayuki Sato

Thank you for specifically choosing to visit the website of our company on this occasion. I am Representative Director Sato.

Sato Metal was first established as Sato Trading in 1987 and later incorporated as a private company in 1989 limited by shares. Since then, we have been expanding our business, relocating our head office and starting operations at new yards such as the Tobishima yard in Nagoya and our yard in China.

Times have recently been changing at breakneck speed. To keep pace amid such rapid change, all employees will ceaselessly strive their utmost and expand their aspirations in the process.

Nowadays, the pace of change is relentless and acutely felt. To ensure we keep up, all our staff intend to thoroughly pursue our mission to ever-greater heights while learning from one another.

As we progress, we will continue to devote ourselves to the recycling business and look forward to even greater support and supervision from you.

Representative Director	Takayuki Sato
