The Machinery & Aerospace Division focuses on five specific industries that are key targets for the company: Automotive, Transportation, Aerospace, Information & Industrial Machinery and Infrastructure. Automotive
Much of the automotive business is conducted through the Detroit office, where SCA is contributing to Japanese and American automotive customers by combining SCA's cost-conscious and competitive business architecture with a seamless value chain from multiple angles. For example, the services SCA offers include overall project management through vehicle production launch programs. They also include the supply of advanced equipment with state-of-the-art production/engineering techniques as well as offshore procurement of components and materials. The contents and areas of SCA services will continue to be innovatively developed and expanded to respond quickly to customers' changing needs. In addition, Sojitz Group owns and manages MMC Automotriz, SA, which imports and assembles Mitsubishi and Hyundai automobiles in Venezuela, and Autrans Corporation, which provides Just-In-Time logistics services with module assembling function to CAMI Automotive, Nissan North America and other customers.Transportation
In transportation, SCA has a track record of more than a quarter century in supplying reliable rolling stock and transportation equipment for the US mass transit and freight market. SCA has provided well over 2,500 railcars to markets that include New York and Philadelphia, and is now supplying state-of-the-art AC propulsion equipment for the Vancouver SkyTrain, the JFK AirTrain system, the Long Island Rail Road and the Metro-North Railroad. SCA is also engaging in a dialogue to develop new generation diesel-electric locomotive and electric drive construction machinery with leading manufacturers in the US.Aerospace
The aircraft and electronics business is based in Seattle, where SCA continues an almost 50-year partnership with Boeing to represent its commercial aircraft to the Japanese airlines. On April 26, 2004, All Nippon Airways (ANA) placed the first order for fifty B787 Dreamliners. The Boeing Company then formally launched new B787 Dreamliner passenger jet based on the ANA order. The Toronto office has a similar arrangement with Bombardier for its commuter aircraft. SCA also represents various US defense systems manufacturers such as Raytheon, Boeing and Northrop Grumman for their products to the Japanese Defense Agency, especially with Sojitz Aerospace Corporation of America.Information & Industrial Machinery
The telecommunications field is an essential area for our future growth as wireless telecommunications, among others, is one of the fastest growing industries. Broadband services via satellite technologies are a primary focus of SCA's activities in North American market, opening the doors to many new possibilities.Infrastructure
SCA has also had many years of experience in the area of infrastructure. For example, SCA is involved in multiple aspects of plant construction, from providing complete turnkey projects for energy project, machinery manufacturing and automotive fabrication, to investing in and financing such projects. SCA is also involved in Latin American infrastructure projects under the Japanese Overseas Development Aid program.
