Kobelco marks European return with HQ opening

10 Apr 14 Kobelco Construction Machinery Europe has celebrated the opening of its Almere headquarters in the Netherlands with the first dealer conference since the Japanese manufacturer’s return to Europe.

The event underlined the excavator specialist’s continued focus on developing productive partnerships with selected dealers.

European dealers who meet the required quality standards have already been appointed in Germany, France, UK, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Austria, Netherlands, Belgium and the Baltic states.

KCME managing director Makoto Kato said: “This event was a major milestone for KCME. Since announcing our official return to Europe we have been working hard in the background to build the foundations for a strong and successful business that will go the distance. We are here to stay and are focused on increasing Kobelco’s market share in Europe. The strong brand heritage and product offerings give us the perfect platform to do that but the final piece of the jigsaw is productive partnerships with the right dealers. We believe we now have that third element and we are looking forward to providing strong products and aftersales support for our dealer partners and their customers.”
