Hitachi boosts machinery production


Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM) has announced plans to significantly boost its global production capacity for mining machines, such as large and ultra-large hydraulic excavators and dump trucks. It will not only expand two of its existing plants, but will also construct new facilities in Hitachinaka City, Japan. The manufacturer also intends to invest in its Indonesian and Canadian locations to further increase production and improve efficiency on a global basis. The total cost will be approximately US$565 million.

Sales of mining machinery are expected to continue to grow due to the substantial demand for resources around the world. As of 2013, HCM predicts annual production of 170 units of large hydraulic excavators up to 120t; 240 units of ultra-large hydraulic excavators between 190- 800t; and 260 units of dump trucks with a loading capacity of 190- 300t.

Work has already begun on the extension work at its two Japanese facilities and is due for completion by the end of 2012. The two new plants will be fully operational by October 2013. More than 500 new jobs will have been created in Japan by 2015. HCM is also making investments to raise the production capacity of factories in Indonesia and Canada.
