localization of tower crane technologies in Zoomlion Tower Crane.

technological partnership with the world’s leading tower crane
design team demonstrates the company’s great ambition to challenge
the global tower crane leaders when its domestic leadership has
been secured. Zoomlion Tower Crane, as one of the top ten companies
in the global engineering machinery industry, is working hard to
integrate the global resources from its steady international
perspective, and to promote its global strategy rapidly.
