Hitachi is a small Japanese town located not far from the copper mine of the same name, which at the very beginning of the twentieth century was attended by a young specialist named Namihei Odaira. It was he who was destined to glorify Hitachi around the world, making the city's name one of the most famous brands.
In his spare time, a talented engineer who received the post of chief of the technical department in 1908, was engaged in the design of electrical devices, and, in the end, created the first electric motor in Japan.
Realizing that he holds a unique commodity for his country, Namihei Odaira did not miss his chance, and in 1910 opened his own business. To join the world of business, a young engineer was prepared not only technologically. Realizing how important successful title and memorable trademark are to success, Odaira approached their development with all seriousness.

In 1972, a division of Hitachi Construction Machinery Europe established a mass production of crawler cranes, which were designed for local organizations. But strangely enough, these cranes were later widely used all over the world.

In 1981, in the city of Osterhout, a new spare parts warehouse was opened. For the first time in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, the necessary technical support was provided for all the equipment that was sold in these territories, manufactured in Osterhout. Also, it was in this memorable year that the 500th car was sold. This event was a great success in the history of the company, and showed the pace of its persistent development.
In 1986, between Hitachi and Fiat, a partnership agreement was signed on the production of a limited range of Hitachi crawler excavators. The manufacturing site was chosen plant Fiat, located near the city of Turin. All other, the main assortment of Hitachi was still supplied from Japan by HCME. In 1988, the first excavator Hitachi-Fiat was bought by a Dutch customer.
In 1990, the company tripled production, and the number of mini excavators that were produced in Osthout, increased to five, making Hitachi one of the world's leading manufacturers in the mini excavator segment.

There was an association "A Partnership for a new Millennium" and Euclid.

Thus, Euclid has become a subsidiary, with 100% ownership of capital.
In 2001, Hitachi completed joint activities with Fiat due to the creation of the Fiat-Hitachi Excavators (FHE). By 2002, the sale of interests of Hitachi as part of FHE, the CNH company, was to be fully completed.
