Sakai was founded in Japan in May of 1918 for the manufacture and repair of diesel locomotives and their engines. Since that time, the company has evolved and grown to an annual production of over 4000 vibratory compactors per year, the largest production volume in the world for these products.
Sakai vibratory compactors were introduced to North America in 1976 and since that time have gained recognition as one of the most state-of-the-art rollers around. Following the strict quality guidelines of ISO9001, Sakai rollers have one of the best service records in America, if not the world.
In 2001, Sakai opened the doors to its new North American headquarters and manufacturing plant in Adairsville, Georgia, just north of Atlanta. With a solid line-up of high force vibratory soil compactors and high frequency vibratory asphalt rollers, Sakai is destined to become one of the strongest product lines in America.
Sakai offers a wide range of high force vibratory soil compactors designed for rapid compaction of all types of soil, rockfill, recycled base materials and soil cement at the lowest possible cost. They also offer a full complement of high frequency vibratory asphalt rollers for meeting density and smoothness requirements on HMA.
