Rock Drills & Breakers
We entered the impact tool field in 1887 to repair and build drills for our own Ashio Copper Mine. All the handheld mining machinery at the time was imported, and too heavy for the average Japanese. Development and improvement have never stopped since. Today we build hydraulic breakers, crawler drills, tunnel drilling jumbos as well as demolition crushers.
Development of a small crawler loader in 1962 put Furukawa into the position of a construction equipment manufacturer. Products are operated at many different job locations around the world. Today we build 30 and 300 series wheel loaders.
Challenge to Develop Dependable Products
A century long target of Furukawa has been dependability. We have spent a great amount of time and effort to obtain a reputation for dependability from every one of our customers. At the very front of a four-lane road tunnel construction site, a tunnel drilling jumbo attacks the tough rock to open up a new passage of the highway. A crawler drill is working at quarry site to produce rocks for construction. A wheel loader loads rock onto trucks. A hydraulic breaker and crusher breaks large rocks and demolishes man made buildings. Near and far, there are Furukawa products working everywhere. Our challenge for dependable products never stops.
