As the only manufacturer of aerial working platform in China among 2017 World Top 10 Access Equipment Manufacturer, in the recent two years, Zhejiang Dingli has gone abroad and accelerated the overseas layout by virtue of its strength and advantages.
On December 1, Zhejiang Dingli signed an agreement with CMEC in USA, to acquire 25% equity of CMEC with USD 20 million. This is another significant overseas investment Zhejiang Dingli made after the acquisition of 20% equity of Magni Italy.
CMEC is specialized in the design, production and sales of aerial working platform.
Aerial working is widely applied in America, which makes America the largest consumer market of global aerial working platform together with sound safety regulations, expensive labor cost and many other factors. With the largest supply stock in the world, it has great updating and new demand. Meanwhile, it is also the biggest stage for competition of international aerial working platforms, so the market competition there is the fiercest. Moreover, America is the originator and headstream of aerial working platform, which has the world-class access equipment manufacturers. Therefore, the door is shut upon the face of foreign products of the same kind which want to enter the American market in most cases.
