Fiat Hitachi Excavators, S.p.A. ( “FHE” ), was a industry created through a joint venture between Fiat and Hitachi in 1986 to produce excavators, bulldozers and other earth-moving equipment since 1988 in San Mauro Torinese, Italy. The joint venture was ended in March 2001 with Fiat establishing a new joint venture called Fiat Kobelco.

FHE was established in 1986 as a joint venture between Hitachi and Fiat-Allis, which was the construction machinery arm of the Fiat Group at that time and later became CNH after a merger with the agricultural equipment arm. FHE conducted the business of the manufacturing and sales of excavators in Torino, Italy. In 1994, it merged into itself the business that produced wheel loaders and bulldozers to become an integrated construction machinery maker.
