In April 2003, Nichimen Corporation and Nissho Iwai Corporation established a joint holding company, integrating their businesses the following year to become the Sojitz Group.
Nichimen and Nissho traced their history back to three trading company titans who played an instrumental role in the development of modern Japan. These trading companies existed, in some form, throughout the opening of Japan, the industrial revolution of the Meiji and Taisho Eras, the nation's postwar recovery, and its rapid growth thereafter:
Japan Cotton Trading Co., Ltd...
Iwai & Co., Ltd...
and Suzuki & Co., Ltd.
