Nippon Pneumatic Mfg. Co. LTD was founded in the early part of the 20th century selling pneumatic tools and has been designing and manufacturing construction equipment attachments since the late 1950s. In 1975, NPK Europa B.V. was established in Rotterdam, Holland to expand sales channels in the European Community. By the mid ’80s, NPK was a well-established, highly reputable manufacturer of hydraulic hammers, crushers/pulverizers and shears and pile drivers.

In 1985, NPKCE was established to provide exclusive distribution and product support for the western hemisphere. Shortly after its inception, NPKCE quickly built an extensive dealer network for product distribution.  In the years since, NPKCE has added manufacturing and machining facilities transforming the company into a fully-fledged designer, manufacturer, and assembler of quality C&D attachments and pedestal boom systems.

Late in 2013, NPKCE entered into a partnership with European mining equipment manufacturer, Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik, of Emsbüren, Germany ,serving as the exclusive distributor of Paus mining vehicles in the United States and Canada. This lead to the establishment of NPK Mining Equipment LLC in 2018 and the launch of a new branch in Elko, Nevada dedicated to the sale and service of Paus vehicles in the West.

NPK worldwide has maintained the philosophy that with enough diverse products and industries, it can withstand the valleys that every industry encounters over time. Through acquisitions, mergers, expanded products, and various new products NPK has continually worked to satisfy this philosophy and through all these opportunities we have stayed true to its philosophy to exceed customer expectations each and every day. We continue to work toward this goal as we come together with Genesis to expand even further into the scrap, demolition and adjacent industries.
