Komatsu today celebrates the company's 100th anniversary, marked by a series of activities over the next year centred around the company's commitment to its new brand promise of "creating value together".

Originally established in 1921 in Komatsu City, Japan, to sustain the surrounding community after the closure of a nearby copper mine, Komatsu has spent the past century dedicated to its founding principles of quality first, technology and manufacturing innovation, global reach and people development.

Through the years, Komatsu's continued investment in core capabilities and strategic acquisitions have connected smart, diverse people and cutting-edge technologies with a shared belief that partnerships are the best way to solve challenges and meet society's needs.

Reinforcing its commitment to its values, the company says its next 100 years will focus on supporting the mining, construction, forestry, industrial machinery and agriculture industries in their transformations into the digital workplace of the future. This will mean a focus on "equipment and people, connected through smart technologies on an open platform, driving towards zero harm, zero waste and zero emissions".

"By helping to digitalise jobsites worldwide, our customers can optimise on-site operations towards a carbon-neutral environment," says a company statement.

Komatsu says it will continue to play an active role in supporting local communities with a specific emphasis on sustainability.
