Shumitomo Corporation is a Japanese multinational Company established in December 1919 and based in Tokyo. Sumitomo Corporation’s origin dates back to the 17th century, when Mr. Masatomo Sumitomo opened a book and medicine shop in Kyoto. Masatomo wrote and left for posterity a document entitled “Monjuin Shiigaki (Founder’s Precepts),” describing how a merchant should conduct business. Forming the basis of Sumitomo’s Business Philosophy of pursuing integrity and sound management rather than easy gains, these teachings have been passed down and adhered to across the Sumitomo Group for 400 years, right up until today. The group started its operations in India with Sumitomo Corporation India Private Limited in 1997 and has now ventured into Car Auto Leasing segment with SMAS Auto Leasing India Pvt Ltd, in November 2013.
