SDLG commits to supporting Australian infrastructure at CIVENEX 2014
Four years after launching its wheel loaders in Australia, leading Chinese construction equipment supplier SDLG is displaying its latest range of flexible and reliable equipment at this month’s CIVENEX. To celebrate, the company is giving out complementary tickets to the SDLG sponsored AFC match between local heroes Sydney Wanderers and Sanfrecce Hiroshima.
Sydney is not only playing host this week to ‘Australia’s premier infrastructure expo’, but also the latest match in the super-competitive Asian Football Confederation – and leading Chinese construction equipment manufacturer SDLG is taking an active part in both proceedings. At CIVENEX, happening at Eastern Creek, Sydney during 14th and 15th May, the company is displaying to visiting councils, government departments and major contractors its latest LG918 and LG938L wheel loaders – machines that are tailor-made for local government and general earthmoving duties.
As the well-established national dealer of SDLG, CJD equipment has a certified parts supply network throughout the country to back up with quick and effective solutions to Australian customers. “There is a discernable shift in the requirements of government buyers and public works contractors for smaller, more affordable and adaptable machines – machines that can handle a greater variety of tasks,” says Andrew Egan, General Manager at SDLG branch of CJD Equipment – SDLG’s national dealer in Australia. “CIVENEX is a good opportunity to display the value proposition these machines present in civil engineering projects. SDLG’s offering of cost-effective, energy-efficient products is meeting with keen interest from government-affiliated buyers who are seeking exactly this from their construction equipment suppliers.”
“With urbanization forecast to grow for another 40 years, it’s important that government spending on transport infrastructure stays ahead of its curve,” agrees Allen Zeng, director of marketing at SDLG. “With strong demand from the road and bridge building sectors, SDLG is well-positioned to offer easy-to-operate, versatile machines that can cater to a variety of jobsite demands. We recognize the great potential of this important market and committed to serving our customers in Australia.”
