SANY America opens new facility in Peachtree, GA
By D.Ann Shiffler12 September 2011
SANY America has opened its new corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, GA. The company began transitioning its assets to the new 400,000 square foot office and manufacturing facility in late August.
"For the last 14 months we have pursued an aggressive construction schedule to complete our new manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters," said SANY America President Jack Tang. "All of our departments are now under a single roof."
While SANY is a newcomer to the North American heavy equipment market, the company is well-established in Asia's booming construction sector, according to a press release. This year, SANY Heavy Industry joined the Financial Times Global 500 list and the Forbes World's Most Innovative Companies list, and in July, the Wall Street Journal also reported that SANY has overtaken Caterpillar for excavator market share in China, according to the press release.
"We are looking forward to ramping up production in our manufacturing area," Tang said. "By the end of this year, 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 our cranes and hydraulic excavators as well."
The facility in Peachtree City features 40,000 square feet of office space and a 360,000 square foot manufacturing and assembly area. To date, SANY has invested $60 million in the site.
