SANY America says its new corporate headquarters will be in Peachtree City, Georgia. The company recently began transitioning assets to the new 400,000 ft2 office and manufacturing facility, while employees began reporting to the location Monday morning.
While SANY is a newcomer to the North American heavy equipment market, the company is well-established in Asia’s booming construction sector. This year, SANY Heavy Industry joined the Financial Times Global 500 list and the Forbes World’s Most Innovative Companies list. In July, the Wall Street Journal also reported that SANY has overtaken Caterpillar for excavator market share in China, and SANY continues to dominate concrete pump truck sales in Asia.
“For the last fourteen months we have pursued an aggressive construction schedule to complete our new manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters,” said SANY America President Jack Tang.
“We are looking forward to ramping up production in our manufacturing area,” says Tang. “By end of 2011, we should have our first concrete pump trucks roll off of our assembly line, and then it will only be a short time before we are producing cranes and hydraulic excavators as well,” he included.
The facility in Peachtree City, Georgia, features 40,000 ft2 of office space and a 360,000 ft2 manufacturing and assembly area. To date, SANY has invested $60 million in the site and is proud to hire and support American labor.
