From construction equipment parts trading to end-to-end production

Article - July 20, 2023

Kanehiro has become an all-rounder solutions company specialized in structural and performance components by understanding the needs of the market.

“We work together with clients to come up with the best-value solution that works for both parties.”

Understanding a market, no matter how niche, requires a holistic outlook that can only be achieved through diverse experience. Japanese firm Kanehiro has become a leader in the field of construction machinery parts through its years of working both as a manufacturer and a trader in the industry.

Founded in 1952, the company operated as a trader until 2003, when company president Hiroshi Hashimoto made the move into the manufacturing of metal assembly parts used in construction machinery. The company used its knowledge of the industry and clear lines of communication with its customers to meet changing needs with new solutions.

Kanehiro’s components are split into two divisions: larger module structural parts and smaller functional parts. Mr. Hashimoto explains that Kanehiro has worked to ensure its employees know each step of the manufacturing process of its parts: cutting, processing, welding, assembly, and painting. As Mr. Hashimoto says: “You have to become an all-rounder, and we have fully achieved end-to-end production for module manufacturing.”

Not only has Kanehiro become competent in all aspects of manufacturing, it has used innovative methods to remain at the vanguard of the industry. From 3D design models and measurement, to robots in its factories, the company uses technology to keep up to date with its customers' needs, especially as the engines used in construction machinery continue to undergo changes.

The company’s innovation has allowed it to expand into China. And with China as one of its manufacturing bases, it is always looking to work with trading companies with expertise in specific regions. Kanehiro’s experience as a trader gives it a unique insight into the needs of its customers, while its manufacturing prowess enables it to meet these demands with innovative solutions.
