JX Nippon Mining & Metals Corporation

JX Nippon Coil Center Co., Ltd. Kawasaki Office to be redeployed in 2018

The Kawasaki Office of JX Nippon Coil Center Co., Ltd. is to be relocated in March 2018. JX Nippon Coil Center, a subsidiary of JX Nippon Mining & Metals Corporation (President: Shigeru Oi; “JX Metals”), is responsible for the slitting of copper alloy products produced at the JX Metal Kurami Works.

JX Metals’ rolled stainless and special steel products had been produced on the Kawasaki premises since before JX Nippon Coil Center was established in 1988, when the site was a branch plant of the JX Metals Kurami Works. The existing buildings and infrastructure are beginning to age. However, the altered surroundings of the Kawasaki Office make large-scale refurbishment and extension of existing buildings, or the addition of new facilities difficult. As a result, the company has decided to redeploy the Kawasaki Office.

Existing equipment will be replaced during the relocation, and to accommodate the already announced productive capacity expansion of the JX Metals Kurami Works, two new slitters and new packing lines will also be furnished. The move is designed to strengthen the JX Metals’ slitting capacity and improve product quality. By constructing a stable supply mechanism for JX Metals products witnessing increasing demand, such as foil products (less than 0.1 mm thickness) and large coil products (8 kg/mm), the JX Metals Group also aims to further strengthen its operational platform.
