SAKAI was originally founded in Japan in 1918 for the manufacture and repair of diesel locomotives. Over time, those product lines evolved into what is now considered the most reliable, easy-to-use, and durable line of heavy and light compaction equipment in the world. SAKAI equipment is now distributed globally.
