Komatsu Ltd. (president and CEO Hiroyuki Ogawa) has expressed its deepest condolences to those who lost their lives in the recent earthquake that occurred in south eastern Turkey.
Komatsu also extends its deepest sympathies to all those affected by the earthquake. In cooperation with its local distributor Marubeni Dagıtım ve Servis A.S. (hereinafter MDS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Marubeni Corporation, Komatsu will lend construction equipment needed for relief efforts to the affected areas free of charge and dispatch operators and service mechanics to assist the relief efforts. This should amount to €140,000. Komatsu will also donate €70,000 through the Japanese Red Cross Society.
Since establishing an office in Turkey in 1975, Komatsu has been engaging through its locally anchored business in Turkey, a major market in the Middle East region. Komatsu will continue to provide material assistance to help the affected areas recover as quickly as possible while monitoring the conditions with MDS.
