Komatsu Ltd. has opened a wholly owned manufacturing and sales subsidiary of Reman components of construction and mining equipment as well as power generators. Komatsu Manufacturing Myanmar is located in Mandalay.
The Reman business remanufactures used components, such as engines and transmissions, to quality on par with new ones, the company says. This is Komatsu's 13th Reman factory, and is Komatsu's first production base related to construction and mining equipment in Myanmar.
Komatsu entered the Myanmar market when it opened its Yangon Office in 1995. With this new facility, the company says it is better positioned to supply Reman products closer to customers' job sites and will also be able to capture aftermarket demand and work to expand sales.
