Hitachi named Tilburg-based Hovers Constructie NV as the official supplier of Hitachi's construction equipment in the Benelux in 1968. In the 1970s, the business introduced a series of locally developed crawler cranes that were well-received around the world. Hovers Constructie NV ceased operations in 1972. On April 1, 1972, HCME was established as the first foreign branch of HCM in order to continue supporting current customers. In 1981, the firm built a parts distribution centre, which was responsible for both the fabrication of locally designed items as well as the delivery of all HCM products throughout Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Fiat and Hitachi established a plant machinery production, distribution, and marketing cooperation in 1986, with the original plan to construct a limited range of Hitachi crawler excavators in Fiat's factory in San Mauro, Turin, Italy. In the 1990s, HCME enhanced production in Oosterhout by starting to make small excavators, which led to a trebling of production volumes due to an expansion of coverage into Russia. Euclid and Hitachi formed a distribution relationship in October 1998. As a result, in April 2000, a new component distribution centre was constructed in Oosterhout, allowing HMCE to take over the exclusive distribution of Euclid dump truck parts. Hitachi and Fiat ended their joint venture collaboration in March 2001.
