SHEEMETZ was established in 1919. At first we produce bolt for battleship in Kanazawa-city. After WorldWar2, We started Sheet metal and coating business because demand of bold decreased. Sheet metal business grew up rapidly depending on increase of demand of it, while demand of bolt was getting lower and lower so afterall we abolished bolt business and set Sheet metal as main business.
