In 1930, the company now known as Kobelco created Japan’s first electric mining shovel. This machine paved the way for all future Kobelco construction machinery and set the tone for decades of pioneering technological development.
 
However, despite the company’s growth over the past 80 years, Kobelco has remained committed to a single focus on excavator excellence. We pride ourselves on the use of high quality components and manufacturing processes and this hasn’t changed despite the ever-changing and increasingly difficult economy. Today, the Itsukaichi factory in Japan plays a key role as the production base for Kobelco excavators used throughout the world. All our heavy excavators for Europe are hand-built here.
