Kobelco has always been a pioneer. In 1930, as a division of Kobe Steel Ltd. Kobelco produced the first piece of construction machinery to be manufactured in Japan: the 50K electric mining shovel. Since then, they have shaped our future with an indomitable spirit, developing many innovative construction machinery products.
To ensure a rapid response to changing needs, Kobelco Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. became an independent subsidiary of Kobe Steel in 1999.
Operating independently, Kobelco will continue to serve clients as a full-service company specialising in construction machinery. As a member of the Kobelco Group, they are committed to providing the high-quality products and excellent service that customers have come to expect from Kobelco, with closer ties than ever to dealers and customers throughout the world.
