CONEXPO 2020

China has become the largest country for construction equipment with total sales of US$ 100 billion in 2019. Sales of hydraulic excavators exceeded 230,000 units, and sales of truck cranes reached 42,000 units, both of which were a historic high. In 2019, the Chinese construction equipment enterprises not only achieved excellent performance in the market but also made outstanding achievements in new product development and technical progress. With Chinese leading 5G technology, many products of Chinese construction equipment such as hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, bulldozers and rollers have reached a higher level in smart technology. With 5G technology, operators can operate and control machines thousand miles away. Zoomlion, LiuGong and other Chinese enterprises displayed those products with this high technology at Conexpo 2020.

CONEXPO 2020

To increase the medical care and treatment capacity against the coronavirus in Wuhan and control epidemics timely, two new infectious disease hospitals in Wuhan, namely Huo Shen Shan Hospital with 1,000 beds, and Lei Shen Shan Hospital with 1,600 beds, were built in a very short span of 9 and 12 days, respectively – an unparalleled feat in the construction sector, in which the Chinese enterprises played important role. As soon as the news of constructing the emergency hospitals was announced, Zoomlion, Sany, XCMG and LiuGong as well as other enterprises dispatched hundreds of construction equipment and operators to Wuhan and equipment operators worked day and night without fearing the risk of contagion or arguing for remunerations, for a miraculous completion of the hospital.

CONEXPO 2020

Chinese construction equipment enterprises have always stepped forward in every natural disaster to actively fulfill their social responsibilities, for instance, in combating the sleet and snowstorm in Southern China and during the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008. On August 5, 2010, when a Copper Mine collapsed in northern Chile, in which 33 miners were trapped underground 700m deep, Chinese manufacturer Sany provided a crawler crane for site rescue free of charge. On March 11, 2011, when a tsunami struck the Fukushima nuclear plant and resulted in nuclear leak, Sany donated a 62m concrete pump truck to Tokyo Electric Ltd for water cooling operation. These fully showed the social responsibilities, undertakings and spirit of internationalism of enterprises from China. To date, many Chinese construction equipment enterprises have returned to work, and their output of machines can meet the sharply increasing demand of the market after the Covid-19 epidemic.
