Hitachi Construction celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2020. Since the company was founded over 100 years ago, it began with the clearing of arable land and the reconstruction of irrigation channels and reservoirs for daily life, and continued with the construction of numerous roads and buildings in various parts of Yamaguchi Prefecture, building infrastructure essential to the lives of local residents. During this time, wars and large-scale natural disasters caused tremendous damage, but the entire company worked together to restore the affected areas on the front lines and grew by earning the trust of the local people. In 1948, the company name was changed to Hitachi Construction Co., Ltd. to represent its goal to “rebuild war-torn Japan into a livable homeland,” through the company name as written in Japanese. The company continues to build new structures as well as repair and maintain existing equipment and facilities, hoping that these works will help to revitalize the region and make the local residents happy, and improving their lives.
