Speaking of XCMG, what is your first impression? Is it a construction machinery giant, a creator of advanced technology, or a world-renowned enterprise? No matter which one of these is your answer, we are very proud to say that XCMG is worthy of each of these names! But if you want to know more about XCMG, it is not enough to just understand a macro image. The reason why XCMG can achieve today’s achievements and reputation is inseparable from every small screw that makes this steel giant move forward smoothly: those XCMG workers who are diligent and brave in their work. Today, please let us tell our own stories, so that everyone can see a more three-dimensional and humane XCMG.
If others operate 100 times, then I will operate 10,000 times. Success will always come to you automatically if you work hard to do your best. —Zhang Jiazhong
Among the older generation of XCMG workers, there is a figure that must be mentioned that is Zhang Jiazhong. Born in a family of blacksmiths, he became interested in forging from an early age, which also laid the foundation for his future career as a blacksmith.
In the 1950s, with his outstanding skills, Zhang Jiazhong joined XCMG as the team leader of the forging team. In the face of heavy production tasks, Zhang Jiazhong did not flinch. He led the forging team to boldly innovate production tools, continuously created and improved 33 tools and operating methods, designed and manufactured eight sets of forging dies, and increased efficiency by 15 times. With the blessing of these advances, the factory produced 113,000 double plows, overfulfilling the task half a year ahead of schedule.
Although the output target has been reached, in order to improve the forging quality, Zhang Jiazhong makes his own forging die with the reverse printing method and the cutting die with the block method, which further solves the key problems in production. He is known as the “King of innovation” and has gained great popularity in the nation. Zhang spent most of his 42 years at XCMG as a forger. When confronted with various challenges, he rushed to the front line and set an example of innovation for the later XCMG workers.
Our equipment participates in major global projects and serves the blueprint of building a better home for all countries. At the same time, it also shows the world the strength of Chinese manufacturing with innovation and vitality. —Liu Li, XCMG Crane
Construction machinery has never been a battlefield for men only. More and more women have also begun to join us and expand the territory for XCMG. During the overseas journey of XCMG Cranes, Liu Li, the overseas product manager, was a woman who took on heavy responsibilities. She travels around the vast land of North Africa all year round, contacting customers, solving problems, and explaining products. Five years of overseas experience have forged her into a brave and fearless “Iron Lady” who is striding forward.
The motivation for Liu Li’s hard work comes from her confidence in her own abilities, as well as her confidence in China’s construction machinery industry. She once said: “Our equipment participates in major global projects and serves the blueprint of building a better home for all countries. At the same time, it also shows the world the strength of Chinese manufacturing with innovation and vitality.”
Excellent women like Liu Li are everywhere in XCMG. With their meticulous and strong qualities, they have made great contributions to XCMG and made it a big step forward in achieving gender equality in the workplace.
Technical difficulties exist all the time. If you break through one, you will face the next one. Innovation is never-ending. Stick to one thing, do one thing, and work for a lifetime. This “road of no one” will never stop. —Shao Zhufeng, XCMG Road
The autonomous road construction products (ARCP) has been a “no man’s land” for a time, and there is no basis for reference at home and abroad. However, in the environment of highly developed mechanical engineering, any technical field is worth exploring by XCMG. In 2016, Dr.Shao Zhufeng formed a special research and development team to venture into the “no man’s land” of road machinery technology in the industry.
In order to obtain first-hand data, Dr. Shao has been on business trips all year round. The photo above was taken in Henan in the summer. The man with arms crossed in the photo is Dr. Shao. In the hot Henan summer, Dr. Shao was wearing a sweater, not because he was afraid of the cold, but because he had not been able to go back after he left home in the cold wind in early spring. three months. In the end, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Shao’s team, the high-quality operation of XCMG Paver made this section the ceiling of the entire high-speed flatness, and Dr. Shao also had a new title – “Dr. Sweater”.
Although he has made great achievements, “Dr. Sweater” has remained sober: “Technical difficulties exist all the time. If you break through one, you will face the next one. Innovation is never-ending. Stick to one thing, do one thing, and work for a lifetime. This ‘road of no one’ will never stop.” In this way, Shao Zhufeng led the team to visit a large number of construction sites, and finally sorted out more than 40 construction techniques. The “road of no one” left the first footprint named XCMG.
I really enjoy this state of working hard at work. Although my name is written on this medal, this honor is the result of the joint efforts of our team, and it belongs to everyone! —Amanda, XCMG Brazil
On the track developed by XCMG in overseas markets, there are a group of people who are striving endlessly. Although they have different skin colors and speak different languages, this group of people has a common goal, which is to seize new heights in overseas markets and release a strong magnetic field of quality services.
As the first foreign employee of XCMG Brazil, Amanda fully participated in and witnessed the construction, establishment and development of XCMG Brazil.
“Thanks to the leadership and colleagues for their affirmation, I feel very honored! It has been nearly ten years since I joined XCMG, but I feel that time flies by with a group of ambitious friends and strive toward the same goal. My love for XCMG is growing day by day.” Amanda caressed the heavy honor in her hand and said excitedly: “I really enjoy this state of working hard at work. Although my name is written on this medal, this honor is the result of the joint efforts of our team, and it belongs to everyone!”
Brazil is known as a must-win place for global construction machinery giants, and the competition to develop this market is quite fierce. In addition, the epidemic situation in Brazil last year kept coming and going, and the work of Amanda’s team also encountered many challenges. However, the Amanda team never makes excuses for failure, and only finds ways to succeed. With their efforts, the team overcame difficulties, developed world-class mining customers such as Vale, and achieved major breakthroughs in new products such as remote control, unmanned driving and new energy pure electric.
As a member of XCMG’s overseas business development, Amanda is the epitome of thousands of XCMG workers with different languages and skin colors. They will grow together with XCMG and create a better future together.
