BRINGING NEW HEAVY

MACHINERY TO THE U.S.:

LIUGONG

LIUGONG’S HEAVY MACHINERY EQUIPMENT—

FROM WHEEL LOADERS AND EXCAVATORS TO

BULLDOZERS—HAS BEEN BREAKING GROUND IN

NORTH AMERICA SINCE 2008.

The 1960s saw China on the precipice of

change. Modernization was the tentpole

of Zhou Enlai’s governing philosophy and

a highlight of Deng Xiaoping’s tenure as

Premier of the People’s Republic of China.

Agriculture, industry, national defense,

and science and technology featured

heavily in the Four Modernizations,

goals adopted officially in 1978 to

rejuvenate China’s economy after the

death of Mao Zedong.

This interest in industry set the stage

for explosive growth in manufacturing

in the country, allowing companies like

LiuGong to gain an impressive foothold

in the growing marketplace. It’s the first

company in China to begin manufacturing

heavy equipment, and was the first

producer of the country’s modernized

wheel loader.

“LiuGong has been integral in China’s

modernization and infrastructure

development. We had a proud history

of growth and we integrate our history

with our future,” shared Chairman Zeng

Guang’an.
