Hikari Works

Outline

Our Hikari Works was established along with the installation of Japan’s first completely continuous wire mill in May 1955. Since then it has steadily accumulated technologies in various fields, including stainless steel, titanium, stainless steel foil, high added value steel pipes, section steel, etc., as one of Nippon Steel’s steelworks.

In October 2003, the stainless steel business made a new start as NSSC. Hikari Works is the production base for steel-making and cold-rolling of austenitic stainless steel as well as hot-rolling of stainless steel wire rods and bars. The cold-rolling mill is for the concentrated production of austenitic stainless steel cold-rolled sheets and coils. The bar and wire-rod mill, as one specializing in stainless steel, has the world's largest production scale.
