SANY Heavy Industry Company is pleased to announce its recognition on the Forbes World's Most Innovative Companies List. In the United States, SANY Heavy Industry subsidiary SANY America said the news underscores a fundamental commitment to creativity and ingenuity.

"I am most pleased that our company is acknowledged as a leader in innovation," said SANY America President Jack Tang. "For years we have actively recruited the best engineering and management talent in the heavy equipment industry, and the market continues to respond very favorably to our business model," Tang included.

SANY's addition to the Forbes World's Most Innovative Companies List comes only weeks after the Chinese heavy equipment manufacturer earned its place on the Financial Times Global 500 List. On the Forbes register, SANY presently ranks 72nd, and company management predicts that position to move much higher in the future.

"The successful launch of our flagship SCC8300 crawler crane at ConExpo 2011 has substantially boosted customer acceptance of our North American products," noted Kyle Nape, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at SANY America.

"As we move into our new manufacturing and R&D facility later this year, we will have even greater opportunities to tailor solutions to the American market," added Greg Trainer, Vice President of SANY America's Crawler Crane Division.

In September, SANY America will move to a new 400,000 square foot headquarters in Peachtree City, Georgia, where the company will produce concrete pump trucks, cranes and hydraulic excavators. To date, SANY has invested over $60 Million in the site.
