With service centers and manufacturing facilities across the globe, we aim to be near areas of major mining activity to support our customers directly and collaborate regularly.
Komatsu was founded in Japan in 1921, but our brand histories date back even further, to 1884 in Milwaukee, WI, USA, where the P&H mining brand was founded and is still headquartered today.
