Chinese crane manufacturer XCMG reached a production milestone as its 200,000th wheeled mobile crane came off the line in Xuzhou.

The country’s largest crane manufacturer introduced its first model, a 5 tonne capacity truck crane, in 1963. Something over 40 years later it produced its 100,000th wheeled crane. XCMG said it is the number two mobile crane manufacturer in the world and claimed it made a third of all the wheeled cranes operating worldwide.

Sun Jianzhong, XCMG vice president, said “XCMG holds many firsts. The supply of 200,000 wheeled cranes is the result of XCMG’s close partnership with suppliers and dealers, with whom we thrive and make progress. We also need to thank our customers as well for their continuous trust and support.”
