Kobelco – Company history
Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe B.V. based in Almere in the Netherlands is a subsidiary of Kobelco Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. Japan. This company in turn belongs to the Japanese group Kobe Steel Ltd. There are subsidiaries and production facilities worldwide for Kobelco excavators and Kobelco cranes.
Already in 1930 Kobe Steel produced the first construction machine for the Japanese market. It was the electric shovel 50K.
Today, conventional crawler excavators, demolition excavators, recycling excavators, mini crawler excavators and SR excavators are part of the Kobelco Construction Machinery range. But also different crane types of the series CKE-G, CKS, SL S and BMS are produced and marketed by Kobelco.
In 2005, a joint venture was entered into with today’s CNH Industrial group to manufacture construction equipment for distribution in Europe and North America. It has specialized in the production of crawler excavators (1 to 50 tons).
In mid-2014, the first Kobelco SK 55 SRX mini excavator with iNDr technology was launched in Europe. It is a mini excavator with integrated dust filtering and a unique engine cooling. This combination leads to an enormous dust and noise reduction. These advantages make the SK 55 SRX particularly attractive for use in cities.
