Scania and Doosan extend co-operation
Robert Sobocki senior VP and head of Scania
Scania and the South Korean equipment manufacturer Doosan Infracore have agreed to further increase their current co-operation.
According to a Letter of Intent, from 2014 Scania will not only supply engines for Doosan’s articulated dump trucks and large wheel loaders, but also other products within the Doosan range.
“In the long term we are estimating delivery of well over 3,000 engines annually to Doosan Infracore. This co-operation has strengthened our position in the growing Asian market,” said Robert Sobocki, senior vice president and head of Scania Engines.
Doosan Infracore is well positioned within the Chinese market. Several models from a total of more than 20,000 machines sold annually in China will be powered by Scania engines.
“We have tested Scania’s engines in our products and they meet our expectations for reliability, outstanding performance and high fuel efficiency,” said Andrew H Choi, sourcing director at Doosan Infracore.
“We also appreciate Scania’s modular concept. One engine platform for all emission levels is of great benefit. For instance, it helps in our design installation work and thanks to Scania’s global service network, our customers also get access to excellent support.”
