Sany Heavy Industry, a manufacturer of concrete, road and port machineries and excavators, said it has won a $86-million order, its largest in the Middle East, from a Kuwaiti engineering construction contractor.
As per the deal, Sany will supply a full range of its products including more than 600 truck cranes, excavators and rotary drilling rigs to the Kuwaiti group. The 600 machines will be used in Kuwait’s national infrastructure projects, which are expected to promote the implementation of Belt and Road Initiative in Middle East.
“Sany has always regarded product quality and service as its core competitiveness in the overseas markets,” stated Xiang Wenbo, the president of Sany Heavy Industry at the signing ceremony held in the presence of Zhou Wanchun, the chairman of Sany International Headquarters.
Wenbo pointed out that Sany had developed specific products to suit the tough working conditions in the Middle East. The company, he stated, invested heavily in building the perfect marketing service network, establishing Sany’s unique service advantage in Kuwait and laying a solid foundation for the greater development of Sany in the Middle East.
Since its foray into the Middle East market in 2006, Sany’s machines have played a key role in a number of mega projects including Burj Khalifa Tower, Jazan Economic City in Saudi Arabia and the world’s largest airport – King Abdulaziz International Airport.
Sany has gained high appraisal in Middle East market by its quality products’ excellent construction performances and perfect service system, he stated.
Wenbo pointed out that the Middle East market had always been a focus of the fierce competition of global construction machinery manufacturers.
