BRIGHT FUTURE

HAVING RECENTLY DELIVERED MACHINES TO IMPORTANT GCC SITES SUCH AS THE MBR SOLAR PARK AND ETIHAD RAIL PROJECTS, CHINESE BRAND SUNWARD IS LEVERAGING ITS QUALITY, TECHNOLOGY, RANGE AND PARTNERSHIPS FOR WIDER PENETRATION INTO THE REGIONAL EARTHMOVING MARKET

A

s a relatively newer name on the Middle East’s equipment landscape, Sunward has made huge strides lately. The Chinese manufacturer landed some prime deals recently, first when a major UAE construction company took delivery of a batch of wheeled excavators, and also when it signed contracts to supply equipment for the construction of the Section D of the UAE’s Etihad Railway project in Fujairah.

It’s main claim to fame, though, is the recent supply of heavy machinery to Dubai’s Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum (MBR) Solar Park project, the largest of its kind in the world, where Sunward rotary drilling rigs and mid-size excavators are engaged in the path-breaking energy project. Recounting Sunward’s journey, Bob Xie, managing director, Sunward Middle East Division, says: “Sunward intelligent Equipment Co. Ltd. was founded in 1999, led by He Qinghua, a professor at China’s Central South

University. It became a listed company in 2006 and is today ranked among the top-50 global construction machinery manufacturers worldwide and in the top 20 global excavator brands. Today, Sunward has a presence in more than 100 countries, and has become a reputed brand in North America, Europe, Oceania, Asia and the CIS region. *With Sunward’s high quality, we have cemented our position in the European market since 2003, with our ‘5S Centre’ (Sales, Service, Spare parts, Survey, Study) in Belgium.
