The Four Manufacturing Bases that have been completed and commissioned cover an area of 3,000 acres, cost a total investment of over RMB 1.2 billion and collect the most cutting-edge technology and the state-of-the-art equipment in the three industries of all-terrain crane, loader and complete sets of concrete machinery.
The Four Manufacturing Bases will produce 5000 medium and large-tonnage cranes, 40000 medium and large-tonnage loaders and 20000 complete sets of concrete machinery and realize new production value of nearly RMB 40 billion, which is equivalent to recreating a new XCMG.
This cluster of modern construction machinery plants in Xuzhou as China’s Construction Machinery Capital marks a significant industrial upgrading and a strategic transformation of XCMG in the 12th Five-year Period, boosts the traditional industry by promoting the integration of informatization and industrialization and enhances the industrial upgrading and change of development mode.
Wang Min, Chairman of XCMG, said, “XCMG’s Four Manufacturing Bases are the fruits of XCMG’s accumulation of industrial knowledge and experience for several decades and display new highlights of the new phase: first, through a highly intensive, flexible, intelligent and all-digital management, XCMG has developed the lean manufacturing and high-quality manufacturing capabilities in a level with the most advanced international benchmarking enterprises,
Highlighting the adherence to the new path of industrialization of the high-end industry to be highly efficient, energy saving and environmentally-friendly; secondly, XCMG has broken through in creating a new mode of mass production of large-tonnage loaders of 6 tons or more, super large-tonnage cranes of 120 tons or more on assembly lines; thirdly, XCMG has created a new high-growth and full-blown field of complete sets of concrete machinery fully consistent with the German Schwing’s technology.”
With the firing of gun salute and color stripes flying around, the ceremony began and the leaders and guests together cut the ribbon for the completion and commissioning of XCMG’s Four Manufacturing Bases. Then the host invited the leaders in the rostrum and all the guests to witness the first product rolling off the assembly line with all attendants counting down 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 before the first LW800K loader broke through the background made of rocks and boulders and rolled off the assembly line. When the “golden key” of the first commissioned loader representing integrity and honor was handed to its user, the audiences applauded to raise the atmosphere to the climax.
