Our company offers new and used construction equipment for sale in Michigan, and as a result it's our job to become intimately familiar with the various heavy equipment manufacturers of the world. Compared to most other industries, it's a relatively small world with a handful of big players. In fact, the top 50 construction machinery manufacturing companies combined account for about 90% of the industry's revenue. However, there are new players in the industry.

Case in point: Kobelco, which manufactures cutting edge machines. When purchasing new and used excavators, Kobelco is the name to know.

About Kobelco

While Kobelco is a subsidiary of Japanese company Kobe Steel, Kobelco Construction Machinery America, LLC is based right here in the United States. The manufacturer is based in Houston, Texas and has a manufacturing plant in South Carolina, which produces excavators and other types of heavy equipment.

Unlike most orginal equipment manufactures in the global heavy equipment marketplace, Kobelco is a relatively young company. In fact, Kobelco was only founded in July 2001. However, since that time the company has grown to feature sales and service operations throughout the western hemisphere. The company manufactures excavators that run between 3,000 and 245,000 pound range. Those excavators include zero tail swing, long-reach, mass excavation, compact excavators, and demolition models.

As you might expect from a company founded in the new millenium, Kobelco is known for cutting edge technology. For instance, Kobelco construction equipment features world class noise and dust reduction systems. Many new excavators also feature advanced hydraulic circuitry that can not only reduce pressure loss but also increase overall fuel efficiency.

Simply put, Kobelco is fast developing a reputation as one of the leading manufacturers of excavators. In the used heavy equipment sales marketplace, companies and contractors looking for used excavators often seek out Kobelco equipment, which is known for reliable, heavy duty performance.
