Komatsu Ltd. (President and CEO : Hiroyuki Ogawa) (hereafter “Komatsu”), through its wholly owned subsidiary in Australia, has acquired iVolve Holdings Pty Ltd (Queensland, Australia, CEO : Kim Parascos) (hereafter “iVolve”), a provider of fleet management system (“FMS”) for construction and mining equipment. The impact on Komatsu’s consolidated business results is estimated to be minimal.
iVolve is a technology company that provides FMS for small to mid-tier miners, contractors, and quarries. iVolve offers systems that visualize operation management information, reduce running costs, and promote safe operations through access to real-time data.

The construction and mining industries require safe and productive field operations.
To solve this problem, Komatsu has been introducing FMS from its wholly owned subsidiary Modular Mining Systems for large-scale mines and Smart Construction, an ICT construction solution, for the construction and civil engineering industry.
iVolve's strength lies in the development and sales of FMS for small to mid-tier miners, contractors, and quarries, which lies between large-scale mining and the construction and civil engineering industries. iVolve has achieved optimal operation management at customers' sites in Australia and North America.
Through this acquisition, Komatsu will globally deploy iVolve's FMS, which has a unique IoT platform, as a new solution to further contribute to improving safety and productivity at customers' workplaces.
After the completion of the acquisition, iVolve will continue to provide its services as an independent group company, and aims to become the world's leading FMS provider in the construction and mining equipment market by capturing new business opportunities through Komatsu network.
