In 1955, Tadano introduced the first hydraulic truck crane named OC-2 with a capacity of 2 tonnage for the Japanese market. In 1960, Tadano successfully manufactured an export model of the hydraulic truck crane and put it on the indonesian market.

Tadano created its first overseas subsidiary in 1973. In the same year, PT United Tractors Tbk (UT) was officialy appointed the authorized distributor of Tadano products in Indonesia. Since then, Tadano has been advancing along with UT and established a solid international position in the field of hydraulic cranes.
