Automobile componentsThe history of ITOCHU dates back to 1858 when the Company’s founder, Chubei Itoh, commenced linen trading operations. Since then, ITOCHU has evolved and grown over 150 years with global trading always at the core of our business. ITOCHU Automobile America Inc. is proud to continue this traditional business function via the Components & Equipment (C&E) business unit. The C&E unit provides import/export services, supplier sourcing & development, and manages all aspects of component supply from customers’ requests for quotes to prototype delivery to VE/VA analysis to the start of production and beyond to post-production service part needs.

non-automobileSimilar to our Automobile Component business, our Components & Equipment (C&E) business unit handles non-automotive components & equipment for industries such as commercial trucks, construction machinery, and industrial/agricultural machinery. C&E can work either as your global sourcing partner to find low cost, high quality components; or as your sales promotional partner to market your products globally, often through the existing and well-established sales channels that our parent company ITOCHU Corporation has developed.

Utilizing our global logistics, warehouse, and ERP capabilities, we will coordinate and consolidate all aspects of component procurement or component sales & delivery to maximize supply base and supply chain efficiencies.  Whether it is managing the product life cycle from the design/development stage to the launch of production, consolidation of components for idealized shipping, warehousing of components for JIT delivery, or providing trade and inventory financing to improve your balance sheet and cash flow, we are here to help you find the best solution for your needs.
