European focus for Liugong
By Chris Sleight21 February 2012
Liugong will have a much bigger presence at this show than at Intermat 2009, with a 2000 m2 stand. Taking centre stage will be the company's new E series excavators, and among the models on show will be the 22 tonne 922 E III, which features a Stage IIIB engine.
In addition to the new excavator, Liugong will take four wheel loaders to Intermat with bucket sizes ranging from 1.9m³ to 4.5m³ and including one European Stage IIIB model, along with four compactors, a grader, two skid steer loaders, three dozers and four industrial forklifts.
In addition, to selling machines in Europe, Liugong is now able to offer finance, thanks to a partnership announced in late 2011 with BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions.
The show is also expected to see Liugong announce more developments related to the acquisition of Polish dozer manufacturer HSW, which was announced in January. The company has previously said it will use the HSW factory to manufacture a range of products for the European market.
