The Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works reaches its history back to 1891 with the establishment of Yokohama Dock Company, Ltd. Originally set up for the purpose of ship repairs, the company later extended its business line to include shipbuilding and machinery production. In 1935, Yokohama Dock Company was merged with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
To meet expanding production requirements an additional plant was opened in Honmoku in 1966. In 1982, in conjunction with "Minato Mirai" - a project devised by Yokohama City to promote redevelopment of urban coastal districts - the Works was moved from the site it had occupied since its founding to the Honmoku Plant and Kanazawa Plant. Today's Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works offers technology and products designed to achieve a more comfortable society. With a full understanding of future social needs, the Works remains totally committed to meeting the challenges for new technologies and new fields.
