Marubeni Philippines Corporation (MPC) is a company that knows no limitations. MPC, while representing Japan’s Marubeni Corporation in the Philippines, is a 100% subsidiary of Marubeni Asean Pte. Ltd.

In keeping with the tradition of the sogoshosha, Marubeni Philippines Corporation is a league above conventional general traders. It services clients with its extensive global network of human, financial and technological resources. Its operations encompass domestic, import, export and offshore trade, turn-key project management, risk management, finance, logistics, Build-Operate-Transfer projects, joint ventures and investments in various industries such as telecommunications, information technology, power, agriculture, transportation, construction, metals, and much more.

As it had done for more than 100 years in the Philippines, Marubeni walks hand-in-hand with the country's development seeking to aggressively promote infrastructure projects, attract foreign investments, advance endeavors in commodity business and enhance agriculture-related businesses and other basic industries.

Today, Marubeni Philippines Corporation remains one of the oldest and the most important among Marubeni's network of companies worldwide.

Japan's Marubeni Corporation started overseas activities in Manila, Philippines in 1909 as trader of textile and abaca. Branches were established in Cebu and Iloilo in the 1920's and Davao in the 1930's to begin the network in the country. Until the 1950's, what is now Marubeni Philippines Corporation was known as Daido Boeki and Daiken Sangyo. In 1967, it was granted a branch status by the Philippines' Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). And in 1996, Marubeni Philippines Corporation was incorporated under Philippine laws.

At present, Marubeni is continuing to expand its operations in new markets that will eventually contribute to its ever-widening circle of partners, investments, and work force. Concurrently, it strives to improve on the efficiency that has made it a successful business enterprise.

How MPC is organized

Marubeni as a Sogo Shasha

The Japanese sogo shosha is a collection of various groups involved in different business fields. Each part of the organization has something unique to offer to the group, thereby, making it a formidable player in international trade.

Marubeni's transactions are greatly diversified among domestic, export, import and 3rd country (offshore) transactions with activities involving trade, investments, wholesale, retail, counter trade, and financing.

On the worldwide scale, Marubeni operates through its global network composed of:

(As of April 1, 2014)

• 117 offices (branches and subsidiaries) in 64 countries
• 4,289 employees (excluding 396 local employees of overseas branches and offices and 1,461 local employees of overseas corporate subsidiaries)

In the course of executing its traditional core functions, Marubeni developed its expertise in areas of information, logistics, finance, risk management and coordination of small to large-scale projects. The application, innovation, interaction and integration of these functions are keys to the success of Marubeni's international endeavors.

MPC and Social Responsibility

Education is one of the most important vehicles of social progress. With this belief in mind, Marubeni has been supporting initiatives to improve both learning and teaching conditions in the Philippines, as well as programs that provide skills training to young Filipinos who wish to finish a technical or vocational course.
