Sany Builds First U.S. Excavator

Posted on February 28, 2012

Sany America has announced the completion of the first excavator assembled at the company’s North American headquarters in Peachtree City, Ga,. A 21.5-ton model SY215 excavator was the inaugural unit.

In addition to excavators, Sany America markets concrete pump trucks, port machinery, rough terrain cranes and crawler cranes in North America. Last fall, the company announced it will build a $25 million R&D center alongside its 400,000 sq. ft. corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility. When complete, the site will employ 300 hydraulic and mechanical engineers.

“This is a wonderful day for us,” said Jack Tang, president of Sany America. “We have worked hard to make this day a reality and we are looking forward to ramping up our assembly lines. This equipment is tailored to the demands of American operators, and it’s assembled right here in the US,” he added.
