Changsha, China / Manassas, Virginia – ZOOMLION Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co. Ltd. and P&J Arcomet, LLC. jointly announced today that they have signed an Exclusive Distributor Agreement for Tower Cranes. P&J Arcomet will be the exclusive tower crane dealer and service agent for ZOOMLION in the United States and Canada.
ZOOMLION recently launched the new T8030-25 flattop tower crane which boasts an 80m hook radius and 6,615lbs. capacity at the jib tip (25t inside capacity). The very first crane was recently put to work on the new Rolex Building in downtown Dallas, Texas. P&J has placed an annual delivery order with ZOOMLION and has started taking deliveries this month.
ZOOMLION & P&J Arcomet began working together on the T8030-25 development in 2014. The Tower Crane was designed by Franz Jost, one of the leading engineers of the Peiner SK series of tower cranes. Peter Jehle developed the mechanical & electrical systems further to meet European and North American requirements. The T8030-25 meets the DIN and FEM standards for design and manufacturing. In addition, the crane has TüV and UL/CSA certification, along with AWS (American Welding Society) certification for all welders.
ZOOMLION is one of the largest manufacturers of construction equipment in the world, with sales and service primarily concentrated in the Chinese and Asian markets. This newly designed tower crane is the first in a series of new products that is meant for the company’s strategic expansion into the North American and European market.
“P&J has an unmatched reputation for tower crane expertise in North America and provides ZOOMLION the sales, rental and service platform befitting our high standards for quality and safety.” Said Owen Yang, Overseas Sales Director at ZOOMLION. “The team at P&J has a lot of experience and is a market leader, not to mention what they have contributed to the Peiner’s prominence on the continent. The introduction of the T8030-25 model will provide a better choice for customers.” He added.
Peter Jehle; Founder of P&J noted, “We spent quite a lot of time getting to know ZOOMLION; from their manufacturing standards, workmanship and technology. We got involved from the ground up and this is one of the best-built cranes I have ever been associated with. This will deliver our customers an exceptional crane at an exceptional value; it simply blows away the competition.”
The new T8030-25 will be on display at BAUMA in Munich, Germany later this spring.
