Although Komatsu started marketing its products in the 1960’s in the United States, our North American operations were established in 1970 with a fresh vision for the industry. Our goal was to become more than just a supplier of superior construction equipment. We made a commitment to become a trusted partner that could provide ongoing support to every customer. Today, Komatsu America is the second-largest, fully-integrated manufacturer and supplier of construction equipment in North America with a reputation for reliability that’s second to none. We have built a network of manufacturing plants and parts depots with approximately 2000 employees who manufacture many units in the United States to serve this market.
Komatsu America Corp. (KAC) manufactures and markets a full line of integrated construction equipment from the smallest compact construction size to the largest mining size. Our product line includes hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, crawler dozers, off-highway trucks, and motor graders. All KAC groups are supported by Komatsu Parts and Service and can be financed through Komatsu Financial.
