Komatsu’s 50 year history in Australia - infographic

  1. 1. KOMATSU’S 50 YEAR HISTORY IN AUSTRALIA EXCEEDING EXPECTATIONS FROM THE VERY BEGINNING NUMBER 1 IN THE WORLD EXPANDING THE RANGE TO MEET DEMAND IN THE 1970S AND 1980S Throughout the 1970s and 80s, Komatsu added dump trucks, scrapers, excavators and graders to its existing range of dozers, wheel loaders and crawler loaders. It was also during the 1970s that Komatsu decided to commit to what it saw as the future of earthmoving: hydraulic excavators. SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY KEY TO SUCCESS Over the last fifteen years, Komatsu Australia has remained at the forefront of the industry and has continued its commitment to innovation with its FrontRunnerTM autonomous hauler fleet currently operating in Western Australia and the second generation of Hybrid excavators hitting the market. Komatsu decided to go it alone and for the first time ever produced a fully Japanese designed and manufactured excavator. Last year, Komatsu Australia celebrated fifty years in Australia. Starting from the position of a small dozer supplier in the 1960s, Komatsu first came to the attention of the Australian earthmoving community as they looked across the Pacific to see how the USA was managing their massive post-war road building program. Throughout the 1990s, Komatsu outsold every other brand of excavator and in Australia alone sold over 2,000 excavators to construction contractors, forestry and mining companies, plant hire firms and quarries. 2,000 excavators At Resolute Equipment, we provide Australia with the best in new and used mining and earthmoving equipment.
