At the departure ceremony, Wang Min expressed heartfelt thanks to the leaders, partners and media for their guidance, concern and support to XCMG.
Wang Min commented that today’s departure of XCMG 700t hydraulic excavator would be a significant moment for XCMG mining machinery and complete sets of large-scale mining equipment. It took XCMG only ten years to develop excavators, including large-scale mining equipment. This is a miracle not only in the development history of mining machinery and excavators in China, but in the history of construction machinery in the world.
Meanwhile, Wang Min fully affirmed the modern factory building, intelligent production line, as well as momentum of all staff of XCMG Mining Machinery. He encouraged the company to work hard, to keep promise and do the best, to concentrate on development with a thankful heart, to produce high quality products and to stay ahead of competitors.
XCMG 700t hydraulic excavator, as the largest tonnage mining excavator independently developed and produced solely by a Chinese brand, is of milestone significance in the development history of open-pit mining equipment in China. With the departure order issued, 15 delivery trucks loaded with XCMG 700t hydraulic excavator structural parts slowly drove out of the factory
XCMG has successively filled the blanks of 300 tonnage, 400 tonnage and 700 tonnage in the field of mining excavators, breaking the monopoly of foreign brands in key technologies. Today, XCMG 700t hydraulic excavators went to large coal mines for operation, once again creating another miracle in China’s construction machinery industry and even China’s high-end equipment manufacturing industry.
Industry transformation and upgrade, serving the country and helping the transformation of China into a great power in manufacturing
Wang Min proposed that XCMG, as a leading enterprise in construction machinery industry of China, should take the lead in making breakthroughs in this field, breaking the monopoly of foreign brands, ending the era of “profiteering” of foreign brands, and providing advanced equipment for safe mining of global mineral resources.
