Hitachi is a global technology company based in Tokyo, Japan, which was founded in 1910 as a workshop for initially repairing machinery used in mining. According to the founder's message, the company's goal was to "help society through the development of perfect, original technology and products". The name Hitachi is a combination of the words hi (meaning sun) and tachi (height). Milestones for the development of the corporation were the development of a 10,000 hp water turbine (in 1916) and the invention of the first large-scale DC locomotive made in Japan (in 1924). World War II turned out to be fatal, the consequences of which were nearly destroyed by Hitachi. In 1959, the American branch of the company was established and in 1982 the European branch of Hitachi began. Currently, the group consists of over 140 companies and is divided into 11 thematic and business segments.
The Hitachi construction machinery division was spun off in 1970, but before that happened, the first Japanese mechanical excavator was produced. Hitachi offers its customers construction equipment designed for a wide range of tasks in a variety of industries, including mining, demolition, engineering and civil engineering. The manufacturer's offer includes a wide range of machines and construction parts, of which hydraulic excavators deserve special recognition. The most popular machines in the offer of the Japanese concern are excavators in the 7 to 50 ton class, and the first hybrid model reduced fuel consumption and exhaust emissions by 30%.
Hitachi is a company particularly focused on the use of modern IT and technological solutions that are used in a wide range of products that serve society and improve the quality of people's lives. An important goal of the company's management is to show due respect to all customers, and this idea is to become reality by providing the best possible machines and parts, which are primarily to be efficient, highly developed and comfortable. Some of the offered products (ZW-5 and ZW-6 wheeled excavators) are covered by Hitachi with a 3-year warranty, which is another proof of the company's management's concern for customers. The company also attaches great importance to issues related to environmental protection, which resulted in the award of the international ISO 14001 certificate.
