Moving into a Higher Gear
- Sany Suote wanted to take advantage of a booming infrastructure market but struggled to buy components for its construction equipment parts.
- It therefore decided to open a subsidiary to produce its own components and needed reliable quality local suppliers.
- Trelleborg Sealing Solutions was chosen as the company's supplier of seals for its gearboxes.
HEAVY-DUTY SEALS AND ROTARY SEALS
Sany develops its own components “It’s high time for us to develop our own products. That’s why we were determined to invest heavily in research and development and manufacturing of machinery parts. And that’s where we have started,” says Zhao.
The company has been growing fast over the years with 1,300 employees till now. By the end of 2018, its sales volume reached CNY 3.97 billion. It offers gearboxes, slewing bearings and track rollers for construction machinery such as excavators, cement mixers, truck-mounted concrete pumps and cranes, and so on.
When Sany decided to invest in a subsidiary to produce parts to support the Group’s growth strategy, good preparations were made. One of the most important things was to choose suppliers to ensure the quality control from the very start.
