Welcome to Komatsu

Komatsu is a global leader in the supply of Japanese-engineered mining, construction, earthmoving and utility equipment in South and Southern Africa.

World-class products are backed by superior levels of service and support delivered by people who are passionate about performance and customer satisfaction.
Our journey on the continent first began in 1962, and from small-scale beginnings we have established a significant presence in nine Southern African countries. Komatsu dozers, excavators and graders have become essential tools in the creation and development of the region’s infrastructure, while our expansive ranges of dump trucks and shovels lead the way in extracting wealth from this mineral rich sub-continent. 

We operate from our new 300,000m2 Komatsu Campus, east of Johannesburg. One of the largest, single-owner industrial complexes in South Africa, the facility represents an investment of almost R1 billion and serves as the central hub from which we manage our widespread operational footprint. It will create valuable synergies as key functions and facilities, including our state-of-the-art parts distribution centre, remanufacturing facility, training department, sales, marketing, distribution and administration departments are located in close proximity to each other.    

This complex was established in order for us to achieve our Vision: To be the leading earthmoving equipment company with the highest levels of product support and value add to our customers’ businesses. 

Our global mid-term management plan will drive our growth strategy and is known in Japanese as ‘Dantotsu’. Simply put, it means ‘moving forward together for sustainable growth’ by being the best of the best.
