About Us

Takeuchi manufacturing began in 1963 and has been a pioneer in the construction industry.
By understanding the needs of our customers, Takeuchi has been able to lead the industry in new product development, creating the world’s first 360° compact excavator in 1971 (TB1000) our innovation continues to the present day.

In 1996 Takeuchi set up its UK subsidiary, based in Rochdale, when the first ever Takeuchi branded machines arrived on UK shores. The Red and Grey brand soon grew to become a firm favourite with plant hire and construction plant operators.

Takeuchi has invested massively in the UK with a large Head Office & Product Support Centre in Rochdale and substantial distribution centre in Thatcham. Takeuchi continues to provide products that meet the needs of today’s construction industry, our dedication is evident through an extensive network of dealers, providing nationwide coverage for our very popular excavator brand.
