HistoryEdit

LiuGong manufactured China’s first modernized wheel loader in 1966 and in 1976 produced its first articulated and oversized wheel loaders.[6] In 1993, it became China’s first publicly traded construction equipment company.[7] Then, to take advantage of western technologies, it entered into a joint venture with the German transmission manufacturer ZF in 1995, a partnership that continues today.[8] In 2000, LiuGong acquired Jiangyin Roller Company,[9] and soon after, continued to expand its product offering to include a total of 12 different product lines. These lines include a full array of construction equipment and specialized machines such as materials handling equipment and mobilized cranes.[10] Today, LiuGong offers 14 different product lines.[2]

In February 2012 LiuGong acquired Huta Stalowa Wola construction machines division and Dressta Co, Ltd. in Stalowa Wola, Poland.
