CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2011 marks the official
entrance of Zoomlion to the North American market, after its successful
integration with Cifa USA.
Zoomlion USA is headquartered in Milwaukee,
Wisconsin and will manage and support the product range and services. Cifa USA
president and CEO Matteo Rolla told Daily News that, at this stage, a limited
selection of Zoomlion products will be distributed in the USA, with plans to
offer more as demand grows.
On offer initially are Zoomlion’s rough
terrain and tower cranes. Also, a number of its crawler cranes will be
available – the full Zoomlion range of crawler cranes varies from 55 to 1,764US
tons (50-1600tonnes), however only those up to 397US tons (360tonnes) are
certified for use in the USA. The company is currently working to certify the
Rolla said that the Zoomlion range of truck
cranes currently doesn’t comply with USA road weight distribution rules and
will be modified to do so, with plans to release them to the North American
market in late 2011 or as demand dictates.
