to answer the needs of society.

We build gentle giants.

Learn more about who we are.

We were born out of necessity. We didn’t hire people to build machines. We built machines so that we could hire people. Harnessing our collective expertise to go further, at Komatsu we stay true to our brand promise: Creating value together.

Past, present and future – it’s all about community.

In 1921, Meitaro Takeuchi founded our company in the town that shares our name. He did so to provide work for the local community after the closure of a nearby copper mine.

For more than a century, our connection to the communities where we operate has stayed at the core of our brand. It guides everything we do, from the ways we think about innovation, to how we hire and train new employees around the world, and how we build relationships with our customers.

Today, we have come a long way from where we started. We have evolved into a truly global company with a diverse workforce comprised of different nationalities and beliefs. And it’s by harnessing the potential of all our different talents and unique perspectives that we push ourselves further.

We explore and help advance the boundaries of technology, developing smart construction equipment and autonomous mining trucks, creating underwater electric bulldozers and even conceptualizing an excavator capable of operating on the moon. Our products and solutions directly support industries essential to the ongoing development of modern societies and everyday life.

For our core customers in forestry, construction and mining, we make big machines that take on even bigger challenges, gentle giants answering the needs of society.

We believe that when people are united by a common goal, the truly remarkable happens. In communities across the globe, we find purpose in creating value through manufacturing and technology innovation to empower a sustainable future where people, business, and our planet thrive together.

Harnessing our collective expertise to go further, we stay true to our brand promise: Creating value together.
