Kobelco and CNH Global provide aid to areas hit by Indian Ocean tsunami
We extend our sincere sympathy to the victims of the Indian
Ocean earthquake and tsunami that struck on December 26, 2004.
Late last year, Kobelco Construction Machinery Co., Ltd.,
through its subsidiary in Singapore, provided relief goods
to areas in the region devastated by the Indian Ocean tsunami.
Kobelco and its global alliance partner, CNH Global N.V.,
have pledged 100 million yen (about 1 million in US dollars)
worth of aid to the disaster-stricken areas. This aid includes
the supply of relief goods and construction equipment with
operators and engineers at no cost to the disaster-stricken
Details of the assistance will be decided after careful consideration
of local needs. Kobelco and CNH hope that the disaster areas
will recover from the damage soon.
