UBE Group

Coexistence and mutual prosperity, from finite mining to infinite industry.

Who are we?

UBE Industries, Ltd. is a Japanese business group created 120 years ago by Sukesaku Watanabe in the city of Ube, Japan.

Under UBE Industries’ original vision of “creating industries with endless possibilities from the finite resources of coal to achieve lasting prosperity for the local community”, we continue to meet society’s needs through our main businesses: Machinery, Cement & Construction and Chemistry.

The UBE Group opted for Europe as one of its key markets over 50 years ago, and we set up our industrial base and European headquarters in Spain to address and improve our service to industry in the Atlantic region.
