In 1910, an electrical engineer named Namihei Odaira living in Ibaraki Prefecture created Japan’s first 5hp induction motor as an in-house venture for a local copper mining company. He named his company Hitachi after the city where he got his start, which means “sun rise.” In 1918, Hitachi had been successful enough that he was able to move his headquarters to Tokyo where it continued to grow. However, World War II and that aftermath of which created immense difficulties for the company as many of its factories were destroyed by Alilied bombing raids. Odaira left the company, but Hitachi’s reconstruction efforts were ultimately successful and the company went public in 1949. Through their commitment to quality and innovation, Hitachi continued to grow, establishing Hitachi America, Ltd. In 1959, and Hitachi Europe, Ltd. In 1982. Their commitment to creating the most efficient, reliable, and durable excavators and haulers led them to partner with John Deere to expand their presence in the Americas. Today, they continue to supply construction sites around the world with some of their most important machines.
