Zoomlion's newest tower crane factory is set to be the largest in the world

Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. is celebrating a lot of firsts. In 2019, its tower crane sales crossed the 10 billion yuan (USD 1.43 billion) mark, making it the first global company in the market to reach such a threshold. Zoomlion's newest factory is also set to become the largest tower crane factory in the world, putting the company in yet another first place position.

"Zoomlion's construction hoisting machinery business has grown from a small machinery company in Changde City into a 10-billion scale multi-sector enterprise in just 14 years, and is now the largest tower crane manufacturer worldwide," said Chairman and CEO Zhan Chunxin. "Zoomlion is now in a better position than ever to make greater contributions to the development of the industry and provide greater value for our partners and customers." 

In January 2019, phase I of Zoomlion's intelligent tower crane factory brought production scale and quality to a new level. On December 25, Zoomlion celebrated the commencement of phase II of the factory which will introduce 16 new production lines, 150 robot construction units and 10,000 data sensors to increase sustainability and boost production. The introduction of new information systems in phase II will also enable networked, intelligent production management and smart decision making. 

The factory's current production lines mainly produce large and medium tower cranes, but the addition of the second phase to the factory will allow for the production of super tonnage machinery, small-scale tower cranes and construction lifts and will enable complete intelligent manufacturing throughout the facility.
