Since 1930, we’ve built KOBELCO excavators to be leaders in the industry, adding innovation to our machines at every turn. It’s that attitude that lead to the development of the first short rear swing excavator, as well as the demolition machine with the longest reach in the world.

Today, we’re continuing our commitment to quality and innovation. We’re building the strongest dealer network in North and Latin America. We’re stocking our parts facility in Texas with more than 54,000 items ready to ship overnight. And we’re building many of our excavator models in the USA. With one eye on the future, we’re staying ahead of the competition and anticipating what you’ll need tomorrow.
