Different challenges exist amongst the fields of design development and testing of construction machines. Often drawing on utilising both technical and project planning disciplines.

Maintained machines:

Komatsu Germany Hannover: Small and middle size wheel loaders, wheeled excavators
KUE Italy: Backhoe- loaders, skid steer loaders, mini excavators
Komatsu UK: Crawler excavators


New Development: The development department of Komatsu Germany Hannover is responsible for the research and development of small wheel loaders and wheel excavators.

Consigned Design: Komatsu Germany in Hanover performs worldwide development tasks for the Komatsu group. In the context of co-operation with Japanese development departments, new products and technologies emerge.

Test: Newly developed machines are checked thoroughly in our test center. Satisfactory durability, product life time, efficiency and performance are the targets of the testing.

Support of Production: The currently produced series is accompanied and supported by our engineers in terms of the improvement of constant product improvement and simplification for manufacture.

Equipment: CAD systems with 3D design software are part of the standard equipment as well as all kinds of necessary tools and modern technology required for development and test.

Organisation: In order to provide a simplified, direct communication our hierarchy is intentionally flat structured.
