Kobelco's Heritage

Kobelco has a long heritage spanning more than 80 years. Its parent company, Kobe Steel Ltd., built Japan’s first construction machine in 1930. The 50K electric mining shovel paved the way for all future Kobelco construction machinery and set the tone for decades of pioneering technological developments.

In the tumultuous 20th century along with Japan’s modern history, KOBELCO made its mark by forging its own path. In 2005, we celebrated our centennial anniversary and are looking forward to the next 100 years.

The all-new Generation-10 machines lead the way in class due to their low emissions, reduced operational costs and increased working performance and are testament to Kobelco’s eight decades of experience and expertise.
