Company History

Introductioon

Iino Kaiun Kaisha(Iino Lines) marked its 110th anniversary on July 1, 2009.

Tracing it all the way back, our history began when Torakichi Iino founded Iino Shokai in the city of Maizuru, Kyoto prefecture, in 1899. Early in the Showa era (1927-1989), the company made a full-fledged entry into the tanker business. Its fleet suffered enormous damage during the Second World War, however, and the company plunged temporarily into crisis. During the post-war rebuilding period, the company expanded its operations and moved into liner services, but its shipping operations were curtailed when it spun off its liner division during the major consolidation of Japan's shipping industry in 1964. Since then, however, the company has contributed to Japanese economic growth through two distinct businesses: its Shipping Business, which focuses on the transportation of resources and energy, and its Real Estate Business, which is engaged in office leasing.

Taking a global perspective, Iino Lines will continue to develop and drive concerted advances in both its Shipping Business and Real Estate Business.
