Who is KOBELCO?
The energy & chemicals segment of KOBELCO's Machinery Business Division is underpinned by three solution lineups: (1) plastic processing machines (ex. Twin screw extruder), (2) compressors for compressing process gases, and (3) heat exchangers used for gas-based heat exchange.
Our business caters primarily to customers in the energy and chemical industries and are in niche fields that are usually not very visible. However, we will improve convenience in daily lives and ensure stability in energy supply by combining our respective solutions.

Our technical expertise
In our nearly 100 years of history, KOBELCO has created a variety of products that are notable for being Japan's first or Japan's largest. This is possible because we take a proactive approach in bringing in technologies and undertaking our own development, and work to improve productivity and quality.
At the heart of these achievements lies our technical expertise, which has been handed down steadily from our founding to the present day. Many of our components, including metalworking and welding, are produced at Takasago Works in Hyogo Prefecture. These components are then integrated as systems to best meet the features and performance that are desired by our customers. This technical expertise of ours is one major reason why customers around the world choose us.
Over the course of our long history, not only have we built an extensive track record and list of accomplishments, but we have also created a corporate culture where we are always ready for challenges. This includes overcoming natural disasters such as the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake in 1995 and various other failures.
We have continuously responded and adapted to changes in our environment. With this experience under our belt, we are unfazed by change no matter the circumstances. In fact, we would like to continue transforming ourselves for years to come and carve our name in history. Our stance will never change.
Attentive listener and eternal partner to our customers
We strive to always listen attentively to the opinions of our customers and be a truly valuable partner. Through high-quality and high-performance equipment, we strive not only to solve our customers’ problems but also to contribute to society and the future. This stance, embraced by each and every member of the Machinery Business Division, is the source of our long history of trust and world-class technical expertise.
