The factory covers an area of 135,000 sq m and Wacker Neuson described its opening as a well timed move

More than 500 guests including government representatives, suppliers, dealers and their customers from around the world attended the ceremony.

China is a key market for the Wacker Neuson Group as it offers future growth potential especially for mini excavators and construction equipment. Reflecting this importance, the group has opened a new production site along with a local research and design center in Pinghu. The company has been distributing construction equipment in China for over 20 years.

“We have identified strong growth potential in China,” said CEO Martin Lehner.

“Rising demand for improved infrastructure, the expansion and modernisation of the country’s road and rail network, plus increased focus on more efficient, environmentally sound compact equipment in this country are further proof that we have made the right decision.

“The opening of our factory in Pinghu is an important step and a well-timed move for Wacker Neuson”.
