LiuGong India, a subsidiary of Guangxi LiuGong Machinery, announced the completion of its 15 years of business in India with a gala celebration for business partners, supporters and media. This celebration is also part of LiuGong’s 60th Anniversary global tour which was announced last November.
On the occasion, Wu Song, Managing Director, LiuGong India, said, “It has been an incredible journey and we are proud to celebrate memories, experiences and our successes. We express our gratitude to all our patrons for their continuous support and commitment which has helped us develop and evolve as market leaders in the construction equipment sector.”
To embrace the ‘Make in India’ campaign and generate better local employment opportunities, an additional investment of US$ 5 million has been invested to enhance the production capacity at LiuGong’s factory in Pithampur. The company’s manpower is likely to increase by 40 per cent over the next 2-3 years; generating more manpower from India to support the motto of ‘Skill India Mission’.
“Like all LiuGong machines, LiuGong India’s machines are designed and tested to operate in the toughest conditions. The machines made in India are well tested for the local conditions. World-class components are used in the equipment including engines, transmission axle, cylinders and control valves; from renowned manufacturers like Cummins, ZF and Kawasaki. LiuGong machines adopt proven technologies to thrive in the most rigorous conditions of India, making them highly efficient, durable, simple to run, easy to service and cost-efficient,” the company said.
