Although Komatsu started marketing its products in the 1960’s in the United States, our North American operations were established in 1970 with a fresh vision for the industry. Our goal was to become more than just a supplier of superior construction equipment. We made a commitment to become a trusted partner that could provide ongoing support to every customer. Today, Komatsu America is the second-largest, fully-integrated manufacturer and supplier of construction equipment in North America with a reputation for reliability that’s second to none. We have built a network of manufacturing plants and parts depots with approximately 2000 employees who manufacture many units in the United States to serve this market.
Komatsu America Corp. (KAC) manufactures and markets a full line of integrated construction equipment from the smallest compact construction size to the largest mining size. Our product line includes hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, crawler dozers, off-highway trucks, and motor graders. All KAC groups are supported by Komatsu Parts and Service and can be financed through Komatsu Financial.

Black Pines Contract Hauling has made a name for itself as a reliable contract hauler in the Fort McMurray area, but there were certainly no guarantees that would be the case. Doug Ramsey started the company in the small town of Black Pines, near Kamloops, BC, in 1997 with a partner (Tom Christopher, who has since passed away) and just one truck.
