SUNWARD Industry City Starts Building World's Largest Foundation Equipment Manufacturing Base
SUNWARD Industry City is located in Changsha National Economic & Technical Development Zone and is set up by SUNWARD Equipment Group. This industry city is a new industrialization base for concentrated innovation system, manufacturing system, office, experimentation and testing system, and components enterprises. Constructed on an area of 1780 000m2 with $700 million investment, SUNWARD Industry City would have a yearly output value of $310 million and profit after tax of $410 million.
Ground-breaking Ceremony of SUNWARD Industry City was held recently.
As SUNWARD development in group strategy, products and industry scope expansion, the new industry base construction is ultimately inevitable. Mr. Su Zimeg during a presentation said that the Industry City construction would provide enough space for SUNWARD products manufacturing. Further more, the Industry City would promote SUNWARD leapfrog development under the background of convergence trend, chain optimization, and centralized management.
Mr. He Quinghua also made a presentation and said that SUNWARD Industry City construction is a milestone of SUNWARD development, which means SUNWARD second stride development. Thus it could provide a solution to energy bottleneck and logistics cost. By improving the validity and rationality of industry city programming, SUNWARD production capacity could greatly be improved. After completion, SUNWARD Industry City will be the world’s largest foundation equipment manufacturing base and also the largest excavator manufacturing base in south China, besides being the largest equipment manufacturing base of Hunan. SUNWARD Industry City construction is the sign of SUNWARD group development startup to form a foundation equipment manufacturing group which is major manufacturer of construction machinery, mining equipment, general aviation and so on.
Global Construction Machinery HubIn recent years, China construction machinery is developing fast to be the world’s largest construction machinery market. During the period of Twelfth Five-Year Plan, increased urbanization, infrastructure construction and national strategic industries development would drive China construction machinery market on a faster pace.
Changsha, the hub of China construction machinery manufac- turer, considers construction machinery as a core industry. In 2010, Changsha construction machinery output value has exceeded $17.1 billion, and is expected to exceed $47 billion by the end of the twelfth five-years plan. Changsha County, which had been orientated as “Capital of China construction machinery” by the government, has become the hub of Changsha construction machinery manufacturer. At present, the output of Changsha construction machinery covers 60% of Hunan province, and occupies 23% of domestic market share, as well as 7.2% of the world's market share. On the first half of 2011, Changsha County industry output, which gets a growth of 34.5%, reaches $12 billion. The output of construction machinery with a growth of 53.6% reaches $8 billion, which covers 65.4% of Changsha County industry output.
During the twelfth five-year plan, Changsha County will keep introducing famous construction machinery enterprises with enlargement, aggregation and specialization strategy under the impact of industrialization. SUNWARD Industry City is one of excellent results of Changsha construction machinery development. By expanding industrial chain, constructing supply companies, and strengthening industry congregating, China construction machinery capital formation could greatly be promoted. Officer from Changsha County said that in order to realize the whole industry concentration, SUNWARD Industry City construction will provide additional power to Changsha County high-tech industry development, as well as optimize industry construction and promote enterprise brand.
