Hitachi Construction Machinery - North America

About Hitachi

At Hitachi, we don’t get sidetracked building every kind of equipment. Instead, we build excavators and haulers. It’s that kind of focus, combined with our legacy of meeting demanding mining applications, that results in highly efficient, reliable and durable machines. So you get maximum performance, no matter which Hitachi machine you’re running.

History

The Hitachi brand has a history that spans more than 100 years. Since the inception of the company’s first electric motor repair shop in Japan in 1910 to the introduction of the recent Dash-6 models, our commitment to efficiency, reliability and durability has remained strong.

When you add a Hitachi machine to your fleet, you can count on long-term service and support.

Hitachi’s partnership with John Deere

Since 2002, Hitachi sales, marketing and many product-support activities in the Americas have been managed by the Construction & Forestry Division of John Deere. Together we use common parts distribution, information systems and training and support programs, ultimately providing you with more value.

Deere and Hitachi produce excavators at their Kernersville, N.C., factory – a 50/50 joint venture established in 1988. Hitachi-branded construction excavators are also produced in Japan. The purpose-built Forester models are produced at a Deere-Hitachi jointly owned plant in Langley, B.C.

Select rigid frame trucks are made in Guelph, Ontario, while the 200- to 320-ton-class trucks are manufactured in Japan. The huge mining shovels and backhoes are all produced in Japan.
