LiuGong Celebrates 60th anniversary

LiuGong also used the occasion to celebrate the production of its 400 000th wheel loader. The achievement was made through the unremitting efforts and proactive technological innovation of all LiuGong people in the past six decades. This is a milestone worthy of celebration in the history of LiuGong.

At the same time, six new products including the 990F excavator, B170DL bulldozer, S935 sugarcane harvester, TC800C5 crane, 4180D motor grader and 886H loader made their debut at the ceremony, fully demonstrating the array of LiuGong's large-scale and intelligent equipment.

Established in 1958, LiuGong is not only a pioneer of the production of loaders, but also laid a solid foundation for the technology, talent cultivation and management for the development of CE industry in China.

In 1958, Shanghai Huadong Steel Factory allocated some employees and pieces of equipment to Liuzhou, Guangxi to facilitate the economic development in southwest China. In a wilderness on the west bank of Liujiang River, they built a factory from nothing. In 1966, LiuGong rolled out the first wheel loader accredited by China, which opened a new chapter in the company’s development.

In 1993, LiuGong began trading on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and became the first listed company of CE industry and Guangxi. Since 2000, LiuGong has been looking beyond its loader business and working on cross-regional operations and expansion of its product lines. So far, LiuGong has 32 complete product lines in six categories to meet the customers’ demands of various applications as well as extreme operations.

In April 2002, LiuGong successfully produced 899 loaders in one month which was known as “899 Campaign”, a huge leap of production at that time. Taking this opportunity, the company launched its reform towards becoming a modern company. Afterwards, its Board of Directors promoted to build an “open and globalised” LiuGong, boarding the fast lane for the company’s globalisation, which was shown in its fast growth of overseas revenues.

Backed by its historical legacies, LiuGong has developed the core values of “customer oriented, assuring the future by quality; people foremost, create value through cooperation”, striving to build an international brand that leads China's machinery industry.
