A legend said an emperor planted a sapling in that region that grew into a forest. The legendary story dates back to the Heian period (794-1192). Some of the lines of products they produce are the intelligent machine control, hydraulic excavators, crawlers dozers, and more. The company itself began in 1917 and has now grown into the world’s second largest producer of construction equipment, according to Komatsu’s website.
