Terex Cranes last week signed a contract with China National Chemical Engineering Co. Ltd. (CNCEC) for the delivery of 41 cranes, marking the largest order received by the company in China to date. The contract covers seven Terex AC350/6 all-terrain cranes in the 350-tonne class and 34 Terex Changjiang truck cranes with capacities ranging from 25 to 130 tons.
Delivery of the cranes is scheduled between the fourth quarter of 2010 and March 2011.
CNCEC leaders said they chose Terex to supply these cranes based on their reputation for quality and performance. The new cranes will strengthen the company’s position in bidding for domestic and international projects, it said.
“With this significant contract, we hope to establish a long-term strategic partnership with CNCEC,” said Thomas Veith, sales director China & Asia, Terex Cranes.
With capacity classes ranging from 8 to 130 t Terex Changjiang offers one of the most complete lines of truck cranes available. All Terex Changjiang Truck Cranes are designed to be fully highway compliant for easy transport from job-to-job. They are manufactured in Luzhou, China.
