Message From the President

ALTEMIRA Co., Ltd. was established on July 1st, 2022. As a subsidiary of the global alternative investment company Apollo Global Management, Inc. in the U.S., Showa Aluminum Can Corporation was renamed as ALTEMIRA Co., Ltd., and Universal Can Corporation changed its name to ALTEMIRA Can Co., Ltd., making a new start as an integrated Aluminum Group Company along with the Group's other three companies, Hanacans JSC in Vietnam, the rolling, foil, and extrusion company Sakai aluminium Corporation, and MA Aluminum Corporation.
ALTEMIRA Group is a combination of aluminum can manufacturers and rolling, foil, and extrusion businesses, making it a unique vertically-integrated aluminum group entity. As a specialized manufacturer of aluminum cans as well as rolls, foils, and extrusions, we are well versed in the appeal of aluminum which is quite sustainable material. We are committed to creating a bright future by combining the outstanding technologies and wealth of knowledge accumulated by our Group companies over the years.

The origin of our new company name ALTEMIRA derives from AL-uminum (AL), TE-chnology (TE) and Japanese "MIRA-i (future)" (MIRA), which expresses the strong desire of the five Group companies to strive toward a bright future with aluminum.

President & CEO Teruaki Nakatsuka


With aluminum technology, a future with dreams

The design concept of our logo is based on the letter "A", the first initial of both ALTEMIRA and Aluminum, and the Japanese symbol for recycling to create a triangular symbol.
This symbolizes ALTEMIRA Group's support for its valued customers and the society ALTEMIRA strives to protect.
Its blue color expresses our sincere attitude towards our customers as "One ALTEMIRA." In addition, we have combined "green" from our desire to contribute to the realization of a green society with recycling technology, which is one of ALTEMIRA's strengths. It also expresses ALTEMIRA's attitude toward creating a bright future together with ourselves, our customers, and society as a whole.
