We work with our global customers and partners to achieve a sustainable future where businesses, people, and our planet thrive together.

Passion and commitment to building a thriving community

“Industry is the foundation of an enriched country, and human resource development is at its heart.”

Our roots stretch back more than 100 years to Komatsu Iron Works, a company Meitaro Takeuchi founded to provide mining equipment for the Yusenji Copper Mine. “We must not let the community dwindle after the mine closure. The key to lasting well-being is the development of local industries.” The visionary commitment of Takeuchi, a humanitarian entrepreneur, led to the foundation of Komatsu in 1921. The founding spirit to grow with society by harnessing technology remains a part of our core values.
