  • 19-Jun-2008 09:17 EDT

Komatsu Utility Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Komatsu Ltd. that produces and sells forklift trucks and mini construction equipment, is restructuring its operations in Japan. In February 2009, the company will transfer the production of mini hydraulic excavators from the Kawagoe Plant in Kawagoe City, Saitama prefecture, to the Tochigi Plant in Oyama City, Tochigi prefecture, to consolidate its domestic production. Komatsu Utility is also going to relocate its head office functions from Tokyo to the Tochigi Plant. Prior to the transfer, Komatsu Utility will transfer the production of large forklift trucks to Komatsu’s Mooka Plant, where articulated dump trucks are produced. Production of powertrain components, such as axles and transmissions, is going to be transferred to the Mooka Plant, the Awazu Plant, and suppliers. Komatsu estimates that ¥3.2 billion will be required for this restructuring project.
