The place of learning improved
for children who will create the future
To commemorate our 100th anniversary, we renewed Komatsu-no-mori in Komatsu City, home to Komatsu Ltd., in Ishikawa Prefecture. We opened Komatsu-no-mori in 2011 under the slogan of developing people and technologies for the future as part of our 90th anniversary commemorative project. Since then, it has received many visitors as the place to develop globally minded human resources of the Komatsu Group and to nurture children with the local communities. Upon renewal, we built the Waku-waku Komatsu History Pavilion by restoring the exterior architectural design of the original head office. This facility is designed to offer sustainable contributions to the local communities and look back on our 100-year history. In addition to the 930E super-large dump truck on display since 2011, we have added the PC4000 super-large hydraulic excavator on display. Furthermore, we renovated the Waku-waku Komatsu Kids Pavilion where children can learn the mechanisms of construction equipment. We also built the Waku-waku Komatsu Future Pavilion, a new multi-purpose facility, which offers visitors the experience of operating a mini shovel without worrying about the weather and accommodates science classes for children. Komatsu-no-mori will continue to move forward with the local communities as the place for visitors to learn about our technologies and history, and for children, who will lead the future, to discover the joy of making things and the wonders of nature.
