Kanematsu Corporation is a general trading company. As such, it engages in diverse businesses, with a focus on communication technology and ICT solutions. The company was founded in 1889 as a wool importer. Diversification during the years of rapid economic growth following World War II turned Kanematsu into a top-10 general trading company in Japan. Later business restructuring led to the current structure, in which information system solutions and other IT businesses (Electronics & Devices) deliver around two-thirds of profits.
