In developing countries like India, Infrastructure development will play a significant role in its economic development. The tormenting recession of last year, has now become a thing of past and industry is getting back on fast track and the adoption of better technology can only lead to the success of any organization. In turn, the success of technology depends upon the barriers encountered and the carriers used to overcome them for its transfer by meeting the local environmental conditions that is what LiuGong has perceived in its Vision, he claimed.

Inadequate information about technical, market & customer issues and to conquer these barriers one has to strive in choosing right type of technology at the right time and that is what LiuGong's exact motto is. At this juncture, with the booming infrastructure, LiuGong is engineering to play a vital role, overcoming the challenges and help the industry by providing world class solutions.

LiuGong has made strategic forays in the mining industry of India by supplying time tested and established 3T & 5T class wheel loaders viz CLG835 & CLG 856 respectively. These loaders, since inception in India, have created a niche market in the mining segment - coal, iron ore or stone quarrying. In the coal belts of Orissa (Talcher), Jharkhand (Dhanbad), Bellary, Hospet (Karnataka) & Bihar, the LiuGong 5 tons Loader – CLG 856 has a strong presence. This particular machine has proved itself as 'cash cow' to many coal mining contractors in these areas. Some of these prominent contractors who are proud owners are GLOBAL MINETECH, Sainik Mining, Aryan Coal, BLA, UTKAL HIGHWAY and RUNGTA etc. In the iron ore mines of Goa, SALGAOKAR MINING is having an impressive fleet of 62 machines; in stone quarrying operations in Bihar, C&C Group of Delhi owns more than 45 units. Apart from mining operations, the machine has equally proved its worth in tunneling operations for Hydel Power Projects and Metro Rail Projects etc.

After achieving resounding success for its wheel loaders, LiuGong introduced its Motor Grader - CLG 418, in the mining & road sectors and Hydraulic Excavator with its 20 T class which has earned a reputation for itself in the field of iron ore mining & road projects. To take success a step further, LiuGong is planning to introduce its 36T Hydraulic Excavator-CLG 936, which is one amongst the latest D series machines matching preva- iling emission norm of Tier II cities.
