KOBELCO CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY is a global provider of hydraulic excavators and crawler cranes, having continuously supplied products, services and information to their customers since their first construction machinery release in Japan, in 1930.


In a fast-moving and changing construction machinery industry, businesses have to be adaptable and able to make rapid changes. KOBELCO CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY recognized that it needed to respond quickly to new customer requests and technological advances to remain competitive, while simultaneously reducing lead-time, and managing cost pressures and increasing product complexity.

We will transform our business processes with the help of Dassault Systèmes’ solutions.
