Contributing to the Development of Infrastructure around the World
We are expanding this business in two ways; one is to export various types of Construction Machinery and the other is to locally manufacture and wholesale Construction Machinery.
Our exporting business contributes to the development of infrastructure around the world, with a focus on emerging countries.
In the local manufacture and distribution of Construction Machinery, our businesses cater to the demand of each market. In North America, we manufacture and distribute small-to-medium-size Construction Machinery and Generators. In South Africa, we distribute Mining and Construction Machinery, while in Indonesia we are involved in local manufacture as well as distribution. In other emerging countries, we are promoting Mining and Construction Machinery by partnering with local dealerships. Meanwhile, in Japan ITOCHU Construction Machinery Co., Ltd., provides Construction Machinery as well as a full lineup of material and equipment for the construction field.
