Who is Mitsui Sumitomo?
The merger of Mitsui and Sumitomo brought together two industry names that have been ahead of their time for centuries.
The Mitsui conglomerate got its start as an individual fabric merchant, but quickly grew into a conglomerate that made its mark by cultivating a reputation for exceptional customer service and looking for new ways to offer more convenience and ease to customers. Respect, honour and integrity for employees and customers alike have been part of Mitsui’s reputation as it expanded from a retailer to a more holistic business.
Meanwhile, more than 300 years ago the Sumitomo family was also looking to the future. In 1690 the family already held numerous copper mining and trading interests when it discovered what would become one of the largest copper mines in the world. Development of the mine was carried out with a focus on environmental sustainability and looking after the world for future generations, and the Sumitomo company undertook tree planting to replace what was lost, while relocating copper refineries to help mitigate the environmental impact of the mines.
Eventually Mitsui and Sumitomo were well positioned to offer marine and property insurance, and in 2001, Mitsui Marine Fire & Insurance Co. and Sumitomo Marine Fire & Insurance Co. merged into the Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company, bringing together the strengths of both names.
