The history of the production of hydraulic cranes in Japan began in 1955 when Tadano launched its first OC-2 truck crane.
In the 1960s, the company began exporting its products to other countries, and its first foreign branch was established in 1955. Since then, Tadano has earned a reputation as one of the largest players in the international market for hydraulic lifting equipment.
Today, Tadano is striving to reach a new level by expanding its business and industry influence and becoming the number 1 manufacturer of lifting equipment in the world. The main concept, which reflects all the equipment manufactured by the company, is mobility and perseverance in curbing gravity.
Tadano's global long-term goal today is to enter a new development path, promote globalization and gain undeniable authority in its field of activity.
Tadano produces self-propelled cranes, i.e. self-propelled carrier trucks, on the basis of which a hydraulic hoisting mechanism is mounted. Three types of cranes are manufactured: all-terrain cranes for large-scale operations, high-power off-road cranes, as well as compact truck cranes with improved handling. The company provides a wide range of manufactured machinery suitable for the needs and conditions of any world region.
