From Kyoei Kaihatsu to UNIC
FURUKAWA UNIC CORPORATION was originally Kyoei Kaihatsu Co., Ltd., which was established in 1946. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry instructed Kyoei Kaihatsu to work on farmland development and disaster recovery work to aid in rebuilding society after the devastation of World War II.
In 1961, Kyoei Kaihatsu launched the first truck-mounted crane in Japan and named it UNIC. In 1970, the company renamed also itself UNIC. This was the beginning of the post-war economic growth period, and the decision to change the name was to express the determination to pave the way for a new age.
