Major Delivery of Mining Equipment Highlights XCMG’s Strength in South Africa
Company’s Mining Solutions Win Praise for Quality and Reliability
XUZHOU, China, Sept. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — XCMG, China’s top construction machinery manufacturer, has delivered six pieces of equipment to a mining company in South Africa, marking another milestone for the brand’s development in the African market.
The order included three XDA40 mining winches, one XE470D excavator, one GR2405 mining grader and one LW1200KN, the largest-tonnage loader model in China. Upon arrival, the equipment underwent and passed strict tests set up by a third-party inspection company, including 50 hours of no-load and full-load drive. The equipment excelled on the muddy, steep roadways in stormy weather and earned praise from the project manager.
“Deliveries such as this one to South Africa, a high-end market on the continent, demonstrate the appeal and value of XCMG’s world class vehicles and heralds the falling away of restrictive policies that have stymied growth of the construction machinery industry there in the past,” said Jiansen Liu, Assistant President of XCMG and General Manager of XCMG Import and Export Co. “Driven by new opportunities across Africa, many of which come as part of Chinas Belt and Road Initiative, as well as strong competition from European, American and local brands, XCMG has developed highly-efficient mining equipment solutions and built an extensive local sales and service network that covers 16 countries across Africa, including a new direct regional spare parts center in Nairobi, Kenya to serve business in East Africa.”
Leveraging its world-leading research and development capabilities, XCMG has tailored a series of equipment adaptable to the high temperature and sandy environment of Africa. Other recent wins on the continent include:
- 14 V series ZL50GN platform loaders exported to Ethiopia: the upmarket model is supported by the most advanced V series technology with more than 10 XCMG patents, delivering a reliable, efficient, comfortable and economical option for different kinds of construction projects.
- XCMG’s XC360 skidders are being used in forestry projects, tripling working efficiency and helping wood farms improve profits by 13 percent.
XCMG is a multinational heavy machinery manufacturing company with a history of 74 years. It currently ranks sixth in the world’s construction machinery industry. The company exports to more than 182 countries and regions around the world.
