LAS VEGAS, the United States, March 17 (Xinhua) -- Live music show, beer garden, test operation of the latest construction equipment -- the booth of China's Sany Group, a world leading manufacturer of heavy machinery, was packed with participants to CONEXPO-CON/AGG, North America's largest construction trade show.
Sany Group exhibits over 30 machines at the trade show held in Las Vegas this week, including its newest electric-powered excavators and loaders.
Sany Group was among over 150 Chinese construction equipment brands attending the trade show, which runs from Tuesday to Saturday.
Lots of advanced Chinese equipment and new electric fleets for the construction industry were on the show floor, including hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, bulldozers and rollers.
These premium products have attracted the attention of more than 1,800 exhibitors worldwide as well as international dealers. They also reached out to more potential customers from overseas markets.
The competence of Chinese construction manufacturers has also won full recognition from their foreign counterparts.
Omni Powertrain Technologies, a global provider of product solutions for modern powertrains of mechanical, hydraulic or electrical designs, started its business in China in 1986.
"China is our largest overseas market," Bernd Blankenbach, R&D director of Omni Powertrain Technologies, told Xinhua in an interview. "We have several customers in China. We supply them powertrains such as gear boxes and electric motors."
"We are producing all of our products, all of the powertrains within Shanghai. It was really proud to see our products integrated in the machines of our Chinese customers over here in the U.S.," he said.
Noting that the Chinese equipment companies are highly competitive, Blankenbach said there are a lot of different players in the construction machines market. "Without high-quality products, it will be pretty soon to get kicked out of the market."
Besides good price and high quality, the Chinese companies are even ahead of global competitors in terms of technology, he said.
Blankenbach expressed full confidence in the Chinese market. "The Chinese market is very, very big. It's still growing and still stable. It is resilient and has great potential."
China's construction and machinery products export has repeatedly hit new highs in recent years, topping 34 billion U.S. dollars in 2021 and 44.3 billion dollars in 2022, according to Shi Yonghong, vice president of the China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Machinery and Electronic Products.
The export is expected to continue in 2023, Shi told Xinhua in a written interview.
Held every three years in Las Vegas, CONEXPO-CON/AGG features the latest equipment advances and newest technology applications in every field in construction.
