Sojitz Aerospace Corporation is the Sojitz Group’s specialized trading company for aerospace, defense, and security equipment. Since our founding in 1975, we have continued to expand our lineup of products and services to respond to the diverse needs of our clients.

In the defense business, we are striving to further distinguish ourselves from the competition and ensure continued profitability. We continually challenge ourselves to excel in new areas based on an analysis of Japan’s current defense posture and the defense conditions in the neighboring countries.

Since assuming the post of president in June 2011, I have developed strategies to expand the commercial business. Areas of promising growth in the current year are aircraft and engine maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), along with exporting aircraft materials, equipment, and technologies.

We supported reconstruction efforts in the aftermath of Tohoku Region Pacific Coast Earthquake, providing multifunctional robots and Medium Girder Bridges. In addition, we have been supportive of official development aid (ODA) projects and peacekeeping operations (PKO) in recent years, assisting Japan in its international aid.

The employees of Sojitz Aerospace are united in their dedication to contribute to Japan’s security and international peace, and we will continue to strive for continued growth.
