Social Contribution Activities

Collaboration with a Business Partner
- Local Human Resources Development in Collaboration with Cummins Inc. -

More effective results can be expected from CSR activities based on collaborations than from activities conducted alone, as we can use each otherís human resources, know-how and resources, etc. In promoting social contribution activities in the past, Komatsu has collaborated with entities like NPO organizations that have their own unique know-how. And now in April 2016, we have made a contract with our business partner, Cummins Inc. of U.S., to collaborate on the development of local human resources.

Komatsu and Cumminsí Common Objective

Komatsu and Cummins Inc., a major engine manufacturer in the U.S., have been building a strong trust relationship over the years as partners in the engine business.
Our two companies have both been putting energy into supporting human resources development in local communities as part of their social contribution activities, and already have collaborated in several areas. Based on this contract, we will globally expand our development of human resources by comprehensively utilizing each otherís resources and best practices.
