The history of Yamamoto Rock Splitter started back in 1915 when the late Mr. Shuichi Yamamoto first started manufacturing spare parts for rock drills in the mountain village of Tojo in Central Japan. Over the years manufacturing expanded into rock drills, pneumatic drifters and hydraulic drifters. The drifters were supplied on a contract basis to reputed rock drill manufacturers such as Atlas Copco and Ingersoll Rand.
The first Yamamoto Ultra Large Rock Splitter was supplied in 1981. Since then, we have supplied over 200 splitters worldwide. In 2010, the International Marketing and Logistics Divisions of Yamamoto Rock Splitter were shifted to Singapore to facilitate stocking and the delivery of splitter and spare parts.
Even today, all manufacturing and product development still takes place in the original factory in Tojo, Japan. This allows us to maintain strict quality control and to build upon the 100 years of experience in manufacturing quality products.
