Komatsu America Corp. is a subsidiary of Komatsu Ltd., a leading global supplier of essential equipment, technologies, and services for the construction, mining, forest, energy, and manufacturing industries. For a century, Komatsu has been by your side with dantotsu quality, reliability, insights and support you need.
Komatsu’s roots stretch back more than 100 years to a lush forest near Komatsu City in Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan, that was once home to a copper mine vital to the surrounding community. The mine’s closure in 1920 could have meant the end for community residents dependent on the jobs, but instead, it was a new beginning.
The mine’s owner and our founder, Meitaro Takeuchi, was an entrepreneur with an extraordinary humanitarian vision, committed to enhancing the community’s quality of life, developing future generations, and growing with society. Determined to bring industrial technology to his country, Takeuchi created a new company by nurturing the skills of the people in the local community.
