Haulotte, Zhongneng renew accord

Haulotte and equipment rental company Zhongneng United have signed a new agreement to increase their strategic cooperation.

Haulotte and Zhongneng United began cooperating in 2019. Since then, the two have jointly participated in a number of major projects, including Beijing Daxing International Airport, Leishenshan Hospital and Yiwu bonded zone.

The two companies recently renewed their collaboration with the new cooperation contract.

At the signing, Yang Tianli, CEO of Zhongneng United, said that the relationship between the two parties has become closer and firmer.

“Zhongneng United attaches great importance to Haulotte’s involvement in the Chinese market,” he said. “As part of our partnership, we experienced the quality and serviceability of Haulotte; we are, therefore, strengthening our strategic cooperation with them. We firmly believe that this agreement will make history in construction equipment rental in China.”

In his speech, Harry Wang, general manager of Haulotte China, thanked Zhongneng United for its renewed trust, and reaffirmed the group’s long-term commitment to the Chinese market.

“It is because we share the same values and have confidence in the future of China’s elevation industry that our cooperation is so fruitful,” he said.

Toyota staff walk for hospice

Staff at Toyota Material Handling UK’s Castleford head office are raising money for local charity Wakefield Hospice by undertaking a 3,920 mi. (6,300 km) ‘virtual’ walk.

Over a 99-day period, the Toyota colleagues will cover the equivalent distance of a trek from Castleford to the company’s three European factories – in Sweden, France and Italy – and back to Yorkshire.

Throughout the challenge, participants will use mobile phone apps or personal fitness tracker devices to record their steps and each week the distance covered by every person will be added to the team’s target.

Toyota marketing executive Helder Figueiredo, who will be responsible for monitoring his colleagues’ progress, says: “Toyota is committed to the local community and Wakefield Hospice has been doing great work for more than three decades. We hope colleagues from across the company, along with their friends and family, will back our team of ‘virtual’ walkers and help us to raise as much as possible for this very worthy cause.”
