DIMO and Komatsu mark 50 years of partnership

DIMO is celebrating its partnership of 50 years with the world-renowned heavy machinery giant Komatsu in Sri Lanka at the same time that Komatsu is marking 100 years of its business operations.

Over the years, Komatsu’s diverse product portfolio has helped to redefine DIMO’s product offering in the Heavy Machinery sphere, enabling the company to make significant contributions towards infrastructure development projects in the country while boosting local large-scale industries such as cement, construction, and mining with world-class heavy machinery that have resulted in increased productivity and higher efficiency levels. The Komatsu product range offered by DIMO includes hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, bulldozers, motor graders, dump trucks, hybrid hydraulic excavators and articulated dump trucks. DIMO has delivered Komatsu machinery for large-scale national projects such as the Katunayake-Colombo Highway, Southern Expressway, Central Highway, Hambanthota Port, and most recently the Port City. DIMO’s Komatsu customers also include the private sector, large-scale cement manufacturers to small-scale individual machinery owners.

During the past 50 years, DIMO and Komatsu revolutionized the local Heavy Machinery industry by introducing Sri Lanka’s first innovative Hybrid Excavators to the market and delivering the largest bulldozer ever to be supplied to Sri Lanka, the Komatsu D375 dozer, to Holcim. The Komatsu and DIMO partnership has also been instrumental in supplying Komatsu HD465-7R, the biggest-ever Komatsu Dump Trucks (Pay Load-55 MT), to Sri Lanka for Siam City Cement Lanka Ltd (SCCL). Although the Hybrid Technology was not widely used in the South Asian region, thanks to DIMO’s capabilities to offer after sales for the Hybrid users in Sri Lanka, Komatsu offered the Hybrid machines, making Sri Lanka become the first country to deliver over 60 units in South Asia.
