Research and Development

We aim to create distinctive products and technologies and strengthen manufacturing capabilities through Group coordination.

The Kobe Steel Group brings basic and cutting-edge technologies developed by the Technical Development Group together with the technologies of the individual business units closely linked to customers and production. This enables Kobe Steel to create distinctive products and technologies as well as boosts its manufacturing capabilities in such fields as materials, machinery, the environment, energy, and electronics.
Under the 2016-2020 Medium-Term Management Plan, we aim to strengthen technical development in order to support growth strategies. We are working to develop differentiated technologies that will maximize profits by strengthening the competitiveness of major products and to create products and processes that will realize value for our clients.
