With a full line of products supported by our advanced IoT technologies, regional distribution channels and a global service network, we help custom- ers safely and sustainably optimize their oper- ations. Our Komatsu, P&H, Joy, Montabert and Modular Mining Systems equipment and services are used to extract fundamental minerals and develop modern infrastructure. Komatsu: Innovative Mining Equipment and Solutions Komatsu is pushing the mining industry >FORWARD. We focus on creating inno- vative technology and solutions that are energy efficient and safe. Our commitment and dedication to our customers drives our pursuit of excellence. Personal Proximity Detection System At Komatsu, we always put the safety of operators, service personnel, manufacturers and other mine employees first. We create our products with the highest standards and we provide essential technologies and services to protect workers while making mining more ef fi cient and cost effective. Our personal proximity detection sys- tems are just one example of how we are revolutionizing safety on mine sites. We fit each worker with a tag that works with our system to monitor his or her movements through the mine, alerting them to potential hazards such and moving machinery, unsta- ble environments and even respirable dust. This information is also sent to provide even more protection to operators and personnel. We understand that people are mining's most valuable resource and no amount of pro- duction or deadline is worth risking a worker's safety. We are proud of our commitment to driving the industry towards zero harm. Smart Solutions and The Internet of Things (IIoT) Smart Solutions is designed to help mining sites track machine usage, predict when to schedule preventative maintenance and improve overall efficiency while reducing costs. With that in mind, we've embraced the Internet of Things (IIoT) to help maxi- mize our potential. We are using the IIoT to grow our Smart Solutions offerings by allowing us to pro- cess more data at a higher rate so we can continuously monitor equipment and mine sites. This ability to access real-time data and analytics results in reduced downtime and improved overall performance and effi- ciency for customers. Personalized Solutions We engage with customers at their work site so that we can thoroughly understand their needs and develop new products, technol- ogies and services that make mining safer and more ef fi cient. Our ideas are inspired by the needs at each site have become part of our integrat- ed approach to research, development and design; resulting in groundbreaking advance- ments for the mining industry, including fully automated haulage solutions, and advanced fl eet monitoring and management systems. We believe our success is dependent on our customers' success. We see our custom- ers' needs fi rsthand and help them go beyond what is necessary, to what is possible. Global Corporate Responsibility We invest financial and employee volun- teer resources in nonprofits and non-gov- ernment organizations, partnering with our communities and prioritizing pro- grams that address immediate needs while building a foundation for the future. We sponsor and support charitable efforts in countries across the globe, such as: feeding the hungry, beautifying parks, hosting STEM events, participating in youth outreach events and partnering with Habitat for Humanity.
