Our Purpose

Creating value through manufacturing and technology innovation to empower a sustainable future where people, businesses, and our planet thrive together.

Our history has been a century of facing and overcoming challenges, and “manufacturing and technology innovation” has been at the heart of all things we do at Komatsu. As we enter our new centennial, we will continue to uphold this spirit as we continue to create value together with our partners.
And with this spirit we aspire to help create a future where people lead a safe, healthy and peaceful life in harmony enabling us all to thrive together.

Our Values

The Values we believe in and practice are deeply rooted in our history and are uniquely Komatsu.


With a ‘challenging spirit’ and without fear of failure, we innovate and always aspire to do more.


Even when the work is difficult, we remain committed to our promises and reliably carry them through to completion.


Creating value comes from teamwork, inclusion, respect, diversity and a win-win approach to all relationships.


To earn and maintain trust, we always act with sincerity, integrity and honesty, and communicate transparently.

Our Promise
