Made in Germany – SANY Europe produces telehandler for the USA.
The production of the SANY STH1056A telehandler, one of the most modern and effective models in its class, is already in full swing in Bedburg. Here, German expertise and precision combine to produce the next generation of telescopic loaders for the North American market.
The main focus is on utilising a perfect combination of European components, for example German Deutz engines, Italian Dana axles and gearboxes, a Parker hydraulic system as well as a Japanese Kawasaki Load Sense piston pump with proven Chinese steel components. The obligatory end-of-line testing is also conducted on-site in Bedburg. "The short transport routes, as well as the fact that delivery to the USA is reliable and continually possible, were a major factor in our decision to produce these machines in Germany," explains Tanja Altjohann, Spokesperson for the PORT division of SANY Europe. "We are also looking forward to further strengthening the Bedburg site and its production expertise within the SANY Group."
