Contribution to society
The TADANO Group strives to contribute to society through social contributions which only TADANO is capable of, led by the Group's corporate philosophy of "Creation, Contribution, and Cooperation".
"If we had a crane, we could right the moai statues." Those words set in motion the Moai Restoration Project, which, since it began in 1991, has raised 15 fallen moai statues. TADANO has maintained its relationship with Easter Island, donating another crane in 2005. In 2010 TADANO presented the Chilean government with products in order to support its earthquake recovery efforts.
In 2007, the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties and Tobishima Corporation, who TADANO had worked with on the Moai Restoration Project, requested TADANO's assistance in the disassembly of the Takamatsuzuka Tomb's stone chamber. TADANO provided technical cooperation by developing a disassembly jig which could be used to hold and lift only the outer edges of the brittle stones.
In 2008, as part of our 60th anniversary initiatives, we donated 3 of our machines for use by the Nara National Research Institute for Cultural Properties project to survey and restore Cambodia's Angkor Wat. They have been principally used in the study and restoration of Western Prasat Top, which had been damaged particularly severely.
