About Tadano

Founded in 1948, the Tadano Group based in Takamatsu, Japan operates globally, specializing in the development and production of hydraulic mobile cranes and hoists.
Key production is distributed across ten locations: five in Japan, two in Germany and one each in the USA, Thailand and India. Lauf an der Pegnitz and Zweibrücken cooperate closely to develop, produce and distribute top-of-the-range mobile cranes.

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.


The objective of the entire Tadano Group is clearly defined: We take action to provide our customers with hoists and associated services that not only meet their expectations, but exceed them.
To this end, we are adopting the C+SQE approach: safety, quality and efficiency based on compliance. Let us be measured by that standard.
