At 10:48a.m., under the steady and watchful gaze of the participants, the leaders and distinguished guests cut the ribbon for the export delivery ceremony. Afterwards, Chairman Wang Min declared the start for the departure of vehicles carrying the mining equipment from the factory. Among loud music, 34 trucks slowly drove to the harbor, marking the start of XCMG’s new journey to contribute to global mining practices.
The exported equipment includes 300t hydraulic excavators, 120t electric drive tippers, 40t sprinklers, 300hp graders, 410hp wheel dozers and 8t loaders, valued at nearly US$200 million. The export ushers in the new era for China to export complete sets of heavy mining equipment, represents that XCMG has become a major player in the world’s mining equipment business, and tremendously accelerates the progress and development of domestic open-pit mining equipment sector.

Mineral resources are the material base of significant importance for economic and social development. Globally, two thirds raw mineral materials are extracted from open pits. As is known to all, large open-pit mining machinery is the highland of manufacture sector and the guarantee to improve mineral resource provision ability of a country. However, China’s domestic heavy mining equipment market was dominated and controlled by foreign giants in a long period of time. Wang Min, the forward-looking chairman of a leading construction machinery manufacturing company in China, points out that the heavy open-pit mining equipment is the core part of the “pearl on the crown” of world’s high-end equipment sector, so XCMG must take the lead to make breakthrough in this field and break the monopoly of foreign brands, so as to provide the country with world-leading equipment to ensure its mineral resource safety and win a say in the global high-end equipment manufacturing field for China.
Today, complete sets of heavy mining equipment have become the strategic products of XCMG, with the breakthrough improvements achieved in products, technologies, quality and markets. With the product portfolio featuring the whole series of high-end equipment, including hydraulic excavators ranging from 70 to 700 tons, tippers from 90 to 360 tons, loaders from 8 to 12 tons, graders from 300 to 550 horsepower and wheel dozers from 350 to 560 horsepower, XCMG has broken the monopoly of foreign brands and become the one and only company in China and one of few companies in the world that can research, develop and produce complete sets of heavy open-pit mining equipment, and changed the competition pattern in the global sector.
Ceaseless R&D efforts and the spirit of craftsmanship over the years contribute to XCMG’s success in winning a say in the global sector of complete sets of heavy mining equipment for China.
Due to large amount of dust, heavy load, high intensity and operation of machines around the clock at an open-pit mining site, there are strict requirements for the reliability, steady performance, advanced nature, comfortability and safety of mining equipment.
Wang Min believes that a really excellent construction machinery company does not win by scale. On the contrary, it wins by technology, quality and large-tonnage products, and this is the very reason that XCMG has been working hard to pursue utmost excellence over the years. Prioritizing the development of high-end products characterized by “Three Highs and One Large” (high-end products, products of high technical contents, products of highly added value, and large-tonnage products), XCMG has fully enforced its highest standard during the manufacture of “excavators and mining equipment with advanced technologies and amazing durability”. And it is the adherence to the standard that XCMG’s mining equipment has inherited the “world-class quality” with XCMG characteristics.
With the desire to benefit community with booming industry and the sense of responsibility to rejuvenate domestic equipment manufacturing sector, XCMG makes innovations by closely centering round national strategies, increase the input of resources by making best use of possible opportunities, manufactures complete sets of heavy mining equipment featuring “Three Highs and One Large”, and promotes the transformation of mining business towards intelligence, safety, cleanness and benefits. Dependent on XCMG’s global coordinated R&D platform, XCMG Excavation Machinery Co., Ltd has carried out the innovative technological research based on the “Three Mutiples and One All” (multiple regions, multiple working conditions, multiple working methods, all-weather operation) platform, and made customized research and development as well as adaptive improvement of its products against the plateau, high-temperature, highly cold and dusty weathers encountered by mines across the world, and achieved consistent breakthroughs in the core technologies and manufacturing techniques.

With excellent product quality and comprehensive services throughout the life cycle of products, XCMG’s mining equipment has won recognition and trust from customers, and increased the share on domestic mainstream mining equipment market, which was originally dominated and controlled by foreign brands. In particular, its heavy excavators above 70 tons has accounted for most 50 percent of the market, surpassing those of foreign brands and ranking first place. With the technical strength and excellence, XCMG has added to the glory of “Made in China” and become a model in domestic construction machinery manufacturing sector that is capable of competing with and even beating world leading companies.
XCMG expands its businesses globally by taking advantage of unprecedented opportunities and highlights the strength of “Made in China” abroad.
XCMG is striding along the track of transformation and upgrading on two wheels, namely independent innovations and expansion of business reach internationally. In the past few years, the priority to advance the interconnection and intercommunication of infrastructure during China’s implementation of its “One Belt, One Road” Initiative has paved out a “golden” passage for domestic construction machinery companies to accelerate their development of international markets. As the forerunner of China’s construction machinery sector, XCMG positively answers the call of the State, pays attention to the international business layout and market development in countries covered by the Initiative, makes greater efforts to promote the R&D and improvement of overseas adaptive products, and has set up 4 R&D centers in Europe, the U.S., Brazil and China and built the R&D and technological platform that supports its expansion of the business reach across the world.

In addition, XCMG has entered into long-term strategic partnership with famous mining companies in the world.
Liu Shengcheng, Assistant General Manager of China CAMC Engineering Co., Ltd, is delivering a speech.
As an affiliate of Sinomach, China CAMC Engineering Co., Ltd (CAMCE) mainly engages in the EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) of international projects, domestic and overseas investment and trade, and it is a long-time business partner of XCMG. This time, XCMG’s export of complete sets of heavy mining equipment in batch has become an exemplary project for CAMCE’s exploitation of international markets. Mr. Liu was deeply impressed by XCMG’s proven track records, reliable product quality and considerate services, saying that XCMG is the one and only company that can compete and even beat foreign giants in domestic mining equipment manufacturing field, and the export is another successful case between the two sides. He further noted that CAMCE will work together with XCMG to implement national strategies, contribute to the success of “Belt and Road” Initiative, grow bigger and stronger through competitions and innovations, make more achievements in such areas are the EPC of international projects and the export of complete sets of equipment, and contribute to the cooperation between China and the countries along the Silk road in the construction of infrastructure, economic and foreign affairs.
A country will rise to industrial power if it pays attention to the development of equipment manufacturing sector and will prosper if it attaches great importance to the boom of industries. With the steady progress made in the implementation of China’s “Belt and Road” Initiative, Chinese enterprises’ “going out” has increasingly become the New Normal. Wang Min said with great confidence that XCMG will take advantage of the opportunities in the implementation of the “Belt and Road” Initiative, compete with foreign giants and obtain more shares on the high-end equipment markets, pursue the business growth featuring “Three Withes and One Sustainable” (sustainable growth with quality, with benefits and with scale) on the basis of its strong industrial ambitions and steady strategic operation performances, enforce the its highest standard during the manufacture of “excavators and mining equipment with advanced technologies and amazing durability”, make great efforts to set up the heavy open-pit mining equipment business that rank first place in China and among the top three in the world, and create a world-leading mining equipment brand for the country.
