Leveraging the properties of aluminum in pursuit of added value of materials to become an indispensable company.

Representative Director & President

For UACJ, 2023 was a year of turning points, being the 125th year since the beginning of the flat-rolled aluminum, while October marked the 10th anniversary of the business integration, and a step forward.

Recently, although we have encountered tremendous changes in the international situation, the spread of COVID-19, and other difficulties, we have steadily executed our structural reforms and overcome various hardships.

On the other hand, the environment in which the Group operates is changing on a daily basis. With the rise of sustainability over the past few years, we are seeing an increase in areas in which aluminum can demonstrate its unique strengths, such as addressing climate change and helping to build a circular economy. Responding to these issues helps us fulfill our Group Philosophy of “Contribute to society by using raw materials to manufacture products that enhance prosperity and sustainability.”

While leveraging the properties of aluminum to the maximum possible extent to pursue added value of materials and further expand the business, we will enhance the sustainability and prosperity of society, in the form of “aluminum lightens the world,” by taking action to conserve the global environment, expanding into new business sectors, and achieving the goal of UACJ Vision 2030, our long-term management vision.

As one of the world’s leading integrated aluminum manufacturers, we will continue to enhance our production capacity and technological capabilities going forward, improve our ability to respond to social changes, and continue to provide products and solutions from a global perspective as a company that is indispensable to society.
