Takeuchi Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Their TB1000 – The World’s First 360-Degree Compact Excavator

Thanks to Mr. Akio Takeuchi, what started as a parts manufacturer for the automotive industry has become a leading brand in the compact construction equipment industry.

His first step into the construction industry was when he received a request for a tool to replace all of the manual labor executed with pickaxes and shovels. Mr. Takeuchi accepted the challenge and released the world’s first compact excavator, transforming how the industry operated.

Since then, the Takeuchi brand has continued to produce even more unique models never seen before, including the 360-degree compact excavator, TB1000, and the first-ever rubber track loader. The TB1000 celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The growth of the company could be due to the pure innovation and willingness to push the boundaries of the construction industry, but many attribute its success to the company values Mr. Akio Takeuchi instilled. Those values were to take care of employees, the environment, and the customer.

Now, with new leadership, Takeuchi plans to honor its past and continue to transform the build process while protecting the environment.

We look forward to seeing how Takeuchi proceeds to transform the industry as we continue to be a proud distributor of their machines.
