Corporate Profile

Our largest strengths – diverse product lineup and global shipbuilding network

Offering high quality products and services from our bases in Asia

TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING conducts business from three bases: the TSUNEISHI Factory (Fukuyama City, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan); TSUNEISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES (CEBU), Inc. (Cebu Island, the Philippines); TSUNEISHI GROUP (ZHOUSHAN) SHIPBUILDING, Inc. (Zhoushan City, China).
Since our founding as builders of wooden ships over a century ago, we have aggressively expanded abroad. Driven by our unwavering and challenging spirit for shipbuilding, we have consistently evolved into the industry leader we are today.
In the 1990s, we expanded to the Philippines. Despite the absence of successful precedents for overseas expansion in the shipbuilding industry, we forged ahead and developed foundations for later expanding to China. We have established a competitive edge with cost-efficient operations and tolerance for exchange fluctuations, while retaining a global shipbuilding network to provide ships with consistent TSUNEISHI quality from our domestic and overseas bases.
With bulk carriers as our core product, we also have a lineup of container carriers and tankers to accommodate diverse market needs. In particular, our best-selling 82,000 DWT bulk carrier Kamsarmax which has been delivered 300 vessels, boasts the top global share in the type of vessels, and its registered trademark has been well recognized as the industry standard.
TSUNEISHI SHIPBUILDING has flexibly managed the changes required to expand. With a perspective on the future, we will continue to amass all our technologies, fully devote ourselves to proposing and building cutting-edge vessels that accommodate the needs of the era, and create new value.
