XCMG mining and construction equipment has been available in South Africa since 2007. Working with local and international partners, their presence in the market stands to grow significantly. At present, it ranks 5th in the global construction machinery market.
With a worldwide footprint that includes exports to 169 countries and a turnover of US$16,4 billion in 2012, XCMG was looking for strategic partnerships in new areas. Due to its status as the financial centre for Africa, the company identified South Africa as an essential trade market.
Managing director of XCMG South Africa, David Dai, explains: “With the establishment of the China-South Africa comprehensive strategic partnership in 2010, bilateral trade increased quickly.
In 2012, trade figures reached US$59,9 billion, which translates to an annual growth of 31,8%. The co-operation in the fields of energy, resources, manufacture and finance has achieved great success.”
Considering this well-established trade exchange, Dai believes that there is massive potential for XCMG, not only in South Africa, but also in the rest of the Africa. By 2016, XCMG believes that they will dominate the market for specialist equipment and specialist machinery in South Africa.
