Trading company specializing
in nonferrous metals for over 70 years

Established in April 1948, Ishikawa Metals Group consists of several trading companies dealing in non-ferrous metals, safety appliances and plantation lumber. From the start, we have been working on the recycling of non-ferrous metals, recognizing that this planet’s natural resources are finite. With climate change becoming a critical issue in the global stage, there is a need for society and businesses to actively be involved in a resource-recycling economy. Our business lines will continue to play a critical part of this new economy to tackle the climate change crisis. As we continue to focus on our primary non-ferrous metals business and other business lines, Ishikawa Metals Group is determined to continue to build towards the future with a dedicated workforce and clear business strategy.
