About the Mining Division

Komatsu Germany - Mining Division engineers, manufactures, sells and services large- to ultra-large hydraulic excavators for the global mining industry. We are a proud member of the Komatsu Group, one of the largest manufacturers of mining and construction equipment worldwidewith a consolidated turnover of EUR 14 billion (2017) and more than 60,000 employees globally.

Komatsu Germany is headquartered in Düsseldorf, where the main engineering campus and manufacturing facility is located. Tradition goes back more than 100 years in enabling groundbreaking innovations in the field of mining equipment. We built the first fully hydraulic excavator in 1954 and have stayed technology leader ever since.

Today we manufacture five types of the hydraulic excavators between 250 - 763 tonnes and bucket volumes up to 42 cubic meters in either front shovel or backhoe configuration. As many of our excavators are used in the most uninhabitable places on earth, with extreme temperatures and soil conditions, we are above all focussed on providing quality and reliability.

The results can be measured easily:

  • Since 1980, we have manufactured more than 1100 excavators, of which more than two-thirds are still in operation.
  • Nearly 90% of the units we sold in the last 35 years have been delivered to repeat customers.
  • The current unit with the most working hours is a PC 4000 which has worked nearly 160,000 hours, which is the equivalent of more than 15 years continuous service 24/7/365.



Our plant is located in the southern part of Dusseldorf. For over 80 years we have been an integral part of the city. The property area is approximately 109,000 sqm. Our plant is ISO-certified according to e.g. Quality DIN EN ISO 9001 and Environmental DIN EN ISO 14001.


The Technical Center combines the expertise of all engineering and manufacturing departments. Spacious and transparent rooms are the distinguishing features of the Technical Center and make it a real eye-catcher in Dusseldorf.


The transport of our machines and parts is challenging. Through a worldwide distributor network, we are able to deliver our goods anywhere in the world. Whether by air, truck, train or on the famous Ice Road, we are real transport specialists.


Highly abrasive material, special applications, the most unfriendly conditions and the most remote places. No problem for Komatsu.  Our large hydraulic excavators are exactly designed for such purposes. We are at home in every field of application.
