SANY has become a trusted and respected one-stop solution partner for southern Africa’s industry, offering renowned yellow machinery for purchase, rental, service, and financing, if required.
SANY established a presence in South Africa in 2006 with a head office in Boksburg, and has, since then, opened branches in Middelburg, Rustenburg and Richards Bay, enabling it to better reach and serve its customers. In South Africa, SANY holds R170 million in spare parts, and offers 24/7 after-sales service to customers around the country. The company aims to increase its spare parts stockholding in South Africa to R270 million in the next year. Through its footprint, SANY supports more than 3 000 operating units in South Africa.
The company’s flagship products include 5.5 – 125 ton excavators, 5 – 7 ton wheel loaders, 60-136 ton dump trucks, 12 – 20 ton drum rollers and 14 feet graders. SANY also offers a comprehensive range of round-the-clock after-sales services to ensure that its customers keep their machines running at peak performance.
“We are proud to celebrate the 18th anniversary of our presence in southern Africa,” said Samuel Zhang, MD, SANY. “For almost two decades, we have built strong relationships with our customers and partners, and are committed to contributing to the region’s development through sustainable, innovative and reliable machinery. Through our national footprint, we can help customers get what they need when they need it. We are grateful for the support of our customers and employees, and we look forward to many more years of success in southern Africa.”
SANY heavy-duty machines have been used to construct roads, bridges, power plants, and other important infrastructure projects around the world. Two major projects that made use of SANY machinery include Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) which recently earned the 1st Mega Project Award from the International Bridge Conference (IBC). Global infrastructure experts have awarded seven excellence awards to projects around the world, and the innovations involved in the HZMB were named Outstanding Project of the Year in the 2021 FIDIC Project Awards.
