HistoryEdit

LiuGong manufactured China’s first modernised wheel loader in 1966 and by 1976 had already added its first articulated and oversized wheel loaders to the product line.[9] In 1993, it became China’s first publicly traded construction equipment company.[10] Then, to take advantage of western technologies, it entered into a joint venture with the German transmission manufacturer ZF in 1995, a partnership that continues today.[11] In 2000, LiuGong acquired Jiangyin Roller Company,[12] and soon after, continued to expand its product offering to include a total of 12 different product lines. These lines include a full array of construction equipment and specialized machines such as materials handling equipment and mobile cranes.[13]
