UBE Industries, Ltd


UBE Industries Ltd is a Japanese business group created 120 years ago by Sukesaku Watanabe, with the founding of the Okinoyama Coal Mine in the city of Ube, prefecture of Yamaguchi, Japan, along with a group of local investors.


Driven by the original vision of "creating industries with endless possibilities from the finite resources of coal in order to achieve lasting prosperity for the local community", at UBE Industries we have continued to diversify into new business areas over the years to meet the needs of society, giving rise to our branches in power, machinery, cement and chemistry, which, along with pharmaceuticals, are the main basis of the current UBE Group.


More than 50 years ago, the UBE Group opted for Europe as one of its key markets and more than 20 years ago, we established our industrial base and European headquarters in Spain to address and improve our service to the industry in the Atlantic region of the world.


UBE Industries has instilled in us the spirit of innovation and has enabled us to adapt to social, environmental and technological changes as one of our driving forces. It has also transformed us into a creative industrial corporation.
