Kobelco Excavators: They’re Back….
Following the termination of a 10-year agreement with CNH in late December and the subsequent opening of their new US Headquarters in Houston in early April, Kobelco Construction Machinery USA said the first shipment of its excavators have arrived at the Ports of Galveston, Tex. and Los Angeles, Calif. The first shipments will be delivered to customers or available at Kobelco dealerships throughout the United States and Canada, the company said.
The initial shipment includes models from 3000 lb. to 180,000 lb., some of which are on order from customers and dealers, the company said. Kobelco added that additional machine shipments are already on the water for arrival at the Ports of Galveston, Los Angeles and Jacksonville, Fla.
Kobelco Construction Machinery USA said it will focus on producing crawler excavators for the rental, landscape, construction, aggregate, road building, material handling, site preparation, recycling and ancillary markets, including zero tail swing, standard and compact models.
