Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (川崎重工業株式会社 Kawasaki Jūkōgyō Kabushiki-gaisha?) (English pronunciation: /kaʊ.əˈsɑːki/; TYO: 7012) is an international corporation based in Japan. It has headquarters in both Chūō-ku, Kobe and Minato, Tokyo.

The company is named after its founder Shozo Kawasaki and has no connection with the city of Kawasaki, Kanagawa.

Even though it originally[2] started out as a ship-building company, its most visible consumer product lines are its motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles, although the company and its subsidiaries also manufacture personal water craft, ships, industrial plants, tractors, trains, small engines, and aerospace equipment (including military aircraft). Subcontract work on jet aircraft (including jumbo jets) has been done for Boeing, Embraer, and Bombardier.
