Message from the CEO

TOP COMPANYMessage from the CEO


Inoue Trading was founded in 1961. Since then, we have conducted business for products related to “food”, “clothing”, and “housing”-related products—which are indispensable for people’s daily lives—in a timely and effective manner. We are expanding our business areas from our main market of Asia to North and South America, Europe, Oceania, and Africa.

Our strength is that we are located in “Fukuoka”, which is the most thriving city in Japan and a direct connection to the rest of Asia. Fukuoka’s great power comes from its mix of tradition and innovation, long-established businesses and startup businesses, and its operations on local and global levels. Those contrasting elements coexist as well as resonate and create dynamism.

Keeping up to date with the times, we added the export business of products made in Japan to our main import business. These products are both unique and high in quality, and the recognition of their excellence is increasing throughout the world.

Additionally, in order to respond to accelerating digitalization, we will focus on not only providing existing products, but also providing “data”, “systems”, and “business schemes”. As part of that, we launched the “data” production initiative of architectural drawing.

All of us at Inoue Trading are committed to making a contribution every day as a bridge between the local and the global, and as a reliable partner that provides opportunities for business expansion to our stakeholders.
