First publishedin World Highways
Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology, an existing Scania customer since 2008, has ordered 375 trucks which will be used as a platform for mobile concrete pumps. Said to be the world’s largest concrete machinery manufacturer, the company's largest mobile concrete pumps, which have a span up to 80 metres, are mounted on Scania’s 4- and 5-axle truck chassis with 6-cylinder 420-470 hp engines. The pumps are used in the construction of high-rise buildings and bridges, for example.
“Our partnership with Zoomlion has great potential and also offers the possibility of delivering trucks to other markets where the company is planning to expand,” says says Peter Sjöblom, managing director of Scania’s Chinese sales company. “The order represents a success for our strategy of supplying high quality products and services that contribute to increased efficiency and higher profitability.”
