History of IHI Mini Excavators
A group of companies from Japan - Ishikawajima (IHI) has significant success in various industries. IHI is involved in shipbuilding, engine manufacturing, turbine manufacturing, etc.
In addition, this group of companies successfully operates a division that specializes in the production of various equipment for construction work (tower, mechanical, floating cranes, excavators, dump trucks, concrete mixers, etc.).
The history of this group of companies began in the middle of the nineteenth century, in 1853, with the founding of Ishikawajima Shipyard, which was engaged in shipbuilding. This company produced the first steamboat in Japan.
Since 1952, IHI has been engaged in the production of construction equipment in the twentieth century. It should be noted that at present, sales of construction equipment account for approximately 11% of the group's total revenues.
Due to the fact that the IHI group of companies is somewhat scattered in its activities in different areas, its position in each of the areas is very mediocre. But, nevertheless, IHI products are quite popular in the world and recognizable, especially thanks to the crane technology that is produced by this group. Widely known caterpillar lifting machines that can lift loads weighing up to fifty tons. IHI mini excavators and crawler hydraulic excavators are also popular on the market. In addition, some success can be noted for IHI crawler dump trucks, as well as concrete pumps, which are divided into standard and mobile.
