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.
A. Marubeni Scholarship Foundation, Inc. >>
The Marubeni Scholarship Foundation Inc. was created in 1989 to commemorate the company's 80th year of business in the Philippines. Today, the Marubeni Scholarship Foundation Inc. has a roster of over 1,000 graduates from vocational and technical institutions, and is committed to granting scholarship assistance to underprivileged but deserving young Filipinos. At the same time, the Foundation is assisting public elementary schools in delivering quality education through donations of computers and audio-visual equipment to aid in classroom teaching.
B. Professorial Chair in the University of the Philippines (U.P.)
In 2008, a Marubeni U.P. Centennial Professorial Chair in Engineering was established at the College of Engineering of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. The professorial chair was created in recognition of U.P.’s College of Engineering’s important role in developing professional engineers who are contributing immensely to the fields of mechanical, electrical and civil engineering in the Philippines.
