Haulotte China recently hosted its 2023 Annual Dealer Meeting at its new factory in Changzhou.
The meeting allowed Harry Wang, general manager of Haulotte Shanghai, to sum up 2022 and look forward into 2023 while sharing the latest products and support policies. Dealers were invited to tour the factory and test Haulotte’s latest products.
The new Changzhou plant was designed and built as a model of an Industry 4.0 factory. It features the latest technologies in terms of organisation and process, such as the capacity to design and produce locally customised solutions.
The factory represents Haulotte’s growth ambitions in China, situated on a substantial 80,000 sqm block of land.
The 44,000 sqm building will allow Haulotte to significantly widen the range of local production.
“The establishment of Haulotte's new factory in Changzhou shows us Haulotte's long-term confidence in the Chinese market. The new COMPACT products are more suitable for the Chinese market and will make us more competitive,” says Peter Chen, general manager of Shanghai Sibang, a Haulotte dealer for more than 10 years.
