Tadano - hydraulic cranes in Japan
Cranes have long contributed to the development of towns, cities, nations and ultimately to the foundations of an affluent future. The history of hydraulic cranes in Japan started in 1955 with TADANO's
development of the OC-2 Truck Crane.
We began exporting our products overseas in 1960 and created our first overseas subsidiary in 1973. Since then, TADANO has been advancing in step with the worldwide development of international business, and we have established a strong position in the international field of hydraulic crane sales.
Now TADANO is aiming to achieve a new growth trajectory by expanding the scope of its business to
become the world's no.1 manufacturer of Lifting Equipment, a field that includes not only cranes, but many varieties of machinery and equipment embodying the concept of mobile, gravity-defying equipment for aerial work.
Our objective is to achieve complete globalization and become a respected, world-renowned enterprise for generations to come.
In July 1996, TADANO received the ISO9001 certificate for quality from Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance
(LRQA) of the U.K. The ISO9000 series is a set of uniform standards, determined by the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO), which apply not to a specific product, but to the quality assurance
and quality management systems of a company. The ISO9001 covers lots of categories than any other,
including quality assurance systems for design, development, production, installation, and servicing. The
certification has raised global recognition of product reliability at TADANO.
Since developing the country's first hydraulic crane in 1955, Tadano has played a leading role in the history
of cranes in Japan. Today, we have an outstanding reputation both domestically and worldwide.
It all begins with our corporate philosophy of Sozo (Creation), Hoshi (Contribution) and Kyoryoku
(Cooperation). This philosophy calls for tight-knit cooperation between people both inside and outside of
the organization, in order to create products, technologies, and services that deliver value to the customer
and to the society as a whole. To implement this corporate philosophy, our management strategy
emphasizes balanced growth for both the company and the people whose lives it affects.
Our slogan is "Lifting your dreams." Here the word "dreams" refers not only to the goals and aspirations
held dear by individuals, society, and our company, but also to the ambition in each of us that turns these
dreams into reality. At Tadano, we believe that high-quality lifting equipment can contribute to a better
society and the prosperity of our customers, and we aim to maximize our corporate value while meeting
the expectations of each and every stakeholder. Simply stated, we are pursuing further excellence for the
world and the future.
