In April 1868, an Englishman Mr. E. H. Hunter came to Japan and founded“HUNTER & Co.” in Kobe, that engaged in importing and then local assembling of “ Hanta Road Roller ”(Thereafter became Hanta Co., Ltd.) which gained a fame for a pioneering road roller in Japan from beginning of 1900s to end the World WarⅡ. Hanta Machinery Co., Ltd. was founded in February 1955 succeeded to the machinery department of Hanta Co., Ltd., and resumed assembling of Road Roller, and also begun manufacturing of cement concrete paving equipment, and after that switched over to manufacturing of asphalt paving equipment such as asphalt sprayers and asphalt distributors. At that time there has been an increase of road pavement construction and to meet the demands timely, Hanta put an effort for the development of series of other related product line. Oil crisis hit in 1973 has caused a drastic change in the situation. However Hanta has succeeded in development of mini-asphalt pavers, and won a good reputation in both domestic and overseas markets. Hanta boasted a good export result of mini pavers delivered to the West Germany.

In 1982, Hanta succeeded to deliver a large quantity of asphalt distributors to Iraq, and since then many Hanta asphalt distributors have been exported to various regions in the world such as Middle east, South east Asia, North Africa and South America. Soon after Hanta has added deicing chemical agent spreaders, road surface milling machines and pavement surface recycling units to their product line as promising road maintenance equipment. Furthermore, it succeeded in those products series production to provide a substantial strength for readiness to cope with a wide variety of customer’s demands in the road maintenance and rehabilitation fields.
