(kōmä`tso͞o), city (1990 pop. 106,075), Ishikawa prefecture, central Honshu, Japan. It is a flourishing market town noted for its copper mining and the production of silk, rayon, and construction machinery.
A small rise in the Middle East could not offset slowing sales in the Chinese market affecting the financial prospects of Komatsu as it reported a 5.5% year-on-year decline in sales in the first quarter of its financial year, which commenced on April 1.
As part of its drive to deliver greater value to mining customers, Komatsu said it is committed to delivering equipment and system-based solutions, including automation, digitization, and visualization technologies.
