Change of the Company Names of Consolidated Subsidiaries

November 19th 2009
Press Release

SUMIDA CORPORATION is changing the name of several of our subsidiaries.

  1. Reasons for the Change
    As our strategic response to the economic crisis, Sumida has this year implemented a major organizational restructuring to completely integrate our operations and centre them around business units – the “Global One Sumida Concept”.

    A major element of Global One Sumida is the inclusion of the name “SUMIDA” in all our subsidiaries, to signify their membership in the SUMIDA Group. When these changes are in place, the consistent use of the name of “SUMIDA” regardless of which SUMIDA subsidiary our customers and business partners have dealings with, would emphasize a clear and consistent image and service all over the world.

    The names of the subsidiaries (e.g. VOGT, Stelco and Panta) will be retained as product brand names as our customers and the markets identify and associate these names with specific products groups. While our customers can be assured that they will continue to get the products that they have learned to value, they will now also be clearly aware that these products are backed by the SUMIDA Group.
