Hitachi Company Welcome


Komatsu company Welcome

Dealing in excavators, bulldozers, loaders and mini-excavators, primarily for the remote Alaska market. This activity resulted in a solid relationship with several manufacturers, used equipment wholesalers and various independent auction and trading companies. Our business expanded to sales all over the world.

We quickly realized the potential for Morooka Products and after becoming a Morooka dealer in 2006, we have developed a network of established suppliers for both OEM and aftermarket parts worldwide.

We learned about crawler carriers from our experience of living in Japan and many visits to the Morooka factory headquarters in Ibaraki Japan.
