Kenya: Chinese Earth Moving Machines Maker Sany, Bets Big On Kenyan Market

For many Kenyans in Nairobi, a SANY bulldozer has been associated with various government demolitions going around Nairobi meant to clear the city off illegal structures. However, the manufacturers of SANY have more plans for the machines with agreements being signed for the supply of various equipment made in China.

Recently, SANY signed concrete machinery and dump trucks dealership agreement with Rhombus, the powerful ready-mix and bulk cement supplier in Kenya. Rhombus is expected to sell 650 dump trucks and 200 concrete machines in Kenya in the coming three years, which will make SANY's concrete machinery rank No.1 and dump trucks list No.2 in the local market.

"SANY is the world's No.1 concrete machinery manufacturer and top 5 construction machinery manufacturer. We can foresee a bright future to cooperate with such outstanding corporation," Mr. Evanson, the company's CEO said. He added, "SANY construction machinery is famous in Kenya, for example, SANY concrete machinery engaged in Mombasa-Nairobi standard gauge railway construction and the construction of many landmark buildings in Nairobi; SANY port machinery, especially the 45ton reachstackers are being used by Kenya Ports Authority."

"SANY has extreme pursuit to its products' quality, which not only improves products' performance but also safeguard operators' safety. I want to be SANY's dealer and make SANY different in Kenya," Mr. Evanson added.

Mr.Evanson has the ambition to make SANY the No.1 construction machinery brand in Kenya. To achieve the prospect, Rhombus shall absorb SANY's advanced IROOTECH system and open hotline to update service quality; build workshop and exhibition hall according to SANY's standard; meanwhile, take over SANY's parts warehouse in Kenya and make plan to set up reliable parts store for existing and new clients.

On top of those efforts, SANY will also provide professional assistance to Rhombus in marketing system construction, service policy making and parts warehouse planning. IROOTECH, a high-tech enterprise incubated by SANY Group, signed its first cooperative agreement in Africa. It will collect operation data through Internet of things technology, updating the real-time data of machinery working situation, reducing the operation and maintenance costs, optimizing the parts management and turnover efficiency for the dealers and end users.
