Shibamoto is a trading company based out of Tokyo with a 100 year long history. Starting from a solid foundation in the steel and real estate industries, over our long history we have continuously shifted focus starting new businesses and challenging ourselves in new industries, such as wholesale food products and synthetic fiber round slings.

Two of our most unique initiatives is the establishment of our joint venture with CNH, a world renowned agriculture company, as well as our vast 60ha farm we own in Hokkaido. In the past several years we have taken on the business of importing and selling drones, which led to us starting our own aerial surveying business.

Due in part to our 100 year old history, we are a company that places importance on traditional values and “Doing the right thing right”. However, despite this traditional background we also realize that it is important to keep the company fresh and looking towards the future. We may not always have the right ideas, and there are times when it can be a difficult work environment due to our traditional Japanese office culture, but we will do our best to work with you and listen to your ideas on how we can create a more comfortable environment. If you are someone who is diligent, and who has the passion to help us rejuvenate and modernize ourselves in a post COVID environment, we would like to welcome you to join the team.

Would you like to join our 100 years and counting journey to build and challenge new markets? This opportunity offers tremendous potential to further enhance your professional talents in business, marketing, Japanese, and much more!

You will mainly be involved with two of our departments, but depending on your interests and individual talents, you may be given tasks from other departments, or have the opportunity to transfer to our subsidiaries.

Round sling Business

Our round sling business manufacturers and sells the American patented round sling, Twin-Path®. Twin-Path® is an ultra- lightweight round sling that greatly improves on the problems with wire rope using special fibers. Round slings are a textile rigging tool that can be used to move and transport heavy objects exceeding 100 tons. Due to their lightweight properties they able to improve safety on the job site while reducing the amount of time and number of workers required to set up a lift. Twin-Path® round slings are used by leading Japanese companies in the automobile, power generation, steelmaking, and ship building industries. Your mission in this role will be to enable smooth communication with the supplier in America and to manage the ordering and importing of materials to manufacture the round slings.

Solution Business

Our mission is to expand the user base of the cloud based solution, Site Scan. Site Scan is an application that was developed in the USA and is one part a tablet application for making automatic drone flight plans for aerial drone surveying, and one part browser based cloud application for processing 3D models from captured drone images. With the backdrop of a declining population in Japan, industries such as civil engineering and construction are beginning to look for 3D data to create a more efficient worksite. It is our mission to combat this issue and propose ways Site Scan can be incorporated into their projects. The 3D data output by Site Scan has already started increasing productivity in this field and is making our customers happy. However recently there have been increased demand Site Scan’s data to be used in relation to GIS(Geographic Information Systems) and now we have now been looking to expand our Site Scan business to cover this field as well.
