Chinese aerial lift manufacturer Dingli has moved into its new production plant this week and at the same time hosted visit from an ASEAN – the Association of South East Asian Nations- commercial delegation with representatives from China, the Philippines, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Malaysia.
The all new plant has around 78,000 square metres under cover and includes a large number of intelligent manufacturing centres, as well as more traditional robotic equipment.
The automated moving assembly line is capable – says the company – of producing a scissor lift every 15 minutes. The plant also includes two fully automatic German built paint plant as is much of the other automated equipment.
The ASEAN visit is part of the ‘One Belt One Road’ strategy, launched by president Xi Jinping in 2013 to improve connections and simplify the flow of exports.
Its initial programmes include the Silk Road Economic Belt and Maritime Silk Road. Dingli’s management has been a solid supporter of the initiative and is looking to play its part in turning it into a reality.
The company said: “We cherish a lot about the development opportunities, development power, and new hope for our company brought by the arrival of our distinguished ASEAN guests. We hope particularly that the visiting mission can help us implement our three-step plan: the first step is to look for long-term agents to help increase sales.
The second step is to set up offices to provide services directly. The third step is to set up branch factories in stable market countries for direct production or technic cooperation”.
