Our technological capabilities, polished over a history that exceeds a century, send diverse products forth into wide-ranging fields that go beyond land, sea, and air, extending from the ocean depths to space.

Since commencing the manufacture of rolling stock in 1906, the Rolling Stock Company has consistently used leading-edge technology to help develop and modernize rolling stock as a leading Japanese manufacturer and thereby contribute to society. Our Hyogo Works in Japan equipped with its accumulated technical knowledge and high productivity levels has manufactured some 90,000 rolling stock such as electric trains, coaches, freight cars, electric locomotives, and diesel locomotives. We deliver our products to customers not only in Japan but also overseas including the U.S., Taiwan, Singapore and Bangladesh. For instance, in the U.S., the rolling stock manufactured at two plants, Kawasaki Rail Car, Inc. in Yonkers, New York and Kawasaki Motors Manufacturing Corp., U.S.A. in Lincoln, Nebraska and at Hyogo Works in Japan has now become an essential means of transportation for the people in the major metropolitan areas including New York, Philadelphia, Boston and Washington DC.

In the near future, railways will be even faster and more comfortable than they are today and will play a more important role in total transportation systems. Kawasaki, as a total system engineering company, is committed to meeting the needs of the 21st century with innovation in rolling stock technology.
