SANY America, Inc. held a ceremony last week to mark the start of construction on the site of what will become the company’s first North American manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, GA. This event demonstrates Sany’s strong belief in and commitment to North America and its Construction Equipment markets. The booms of Sany’s Concrete Pump Trucks filled the sky as the company celebrated with the official Construction Commencement Ceremony. All Sany America employees were invited to come out to the construction site to see the progress and mark this special occasion.

"The new building represents a significant investment by SANY Group" said Jack Tang, President of SANY America at the Construction Commencement Ceremony. "It will ensure that we continue our progress in recruiting some of the best engineers in the world, and will provide them with an environment that will allow them to push the boundaries of innovation and quality in our brand of construction equipment."

Sany’s new facility is being constructed on a 228 acre site in Peachtree City, Georgia, and will be focused on the Research & Development, Sales & Marketing and manufacture and assembly of Lattice Boom Crawler Cranes, Rough Terrain Cranes, Truck Mounted Concrete Pumps, Hydraulic Excavators, Motor Graders, Reach Stackers, Container Handlers, and Rotary Drill Rigs. Construction of the new facility is planned to be completed in approximately 12 to 14 months, with product production expected to begin soon thereafter.

Perkins and Will, an internationally recognized architectural design firm, created an innovative, modern design for Sany’s new facility referred to as “The Wave.” The entire front façade, as well as the eastern wall of the facility, will be constructed with glass giving the facility a very distinctive and sleek appearance. There will be a total of 360,000 square feet under roof and the new facility will reach almost 50 feet in height.

The office portion of the building will be arranged on three levels with each floor containing 60,000 square feet of space. The building will house all members of the company’s corporate staff, engineering, sales & marketing, research & development, in addition to manufacturing and warehouse employees. It will also serve as the North American distribution center for both finished goods and service parts, plus it will have both outdoor display and storage areas for finished machine inventory. In addition to the usual employee amenities there will be outdoor picnic and activity areas on the attractive landscaped grounds of the facility, designed to accommodate up to 500 employees.

Construction on this, the first phase of SANY America’s North American Headquarters, has a projected cost in excess of $60 million dollars and is scheduled for completion in 12 to 14 months. Currently, 115 are employed at SANY America, with plans to grow to 300 by the end of 2012. The property itself provides up to 1.2 million square feet of buildable area allowing Sany America to continue to grow and develop with phases II, III and IV. Kyle Nape, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing noted, “It is an exciting time for our customers and the entire team at Sany America. It will be an impressive site!”

Re:

I appreciate this new building of SANY Group. Definitely this effort will increase the development of construction and civil industry. Intelligent engineers will show their efforts in observing the quality of construction material used in making buildings as well as the quality of construction machineries will also be checked accurately.

Grassroots...a question

Where are you getting your information?

I ask that because the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 clearly states employers are to avoid even ASKING an applicant's age, so how can this company avoid hiring folks over 50?

If you look old you are old!
Your resume shows the years that got away usually.
As the TV ad says, if you got gray hair you are shot!
Look at President Obama's hair in less than two years!
We simply have to start hiring Presidents who have coal black, dark brown, or a full-headed red-head for President. No blondes!

Jobs Coming: Seniors are Descriminated against

They will not be hiring Seniors or qualified applicants over 50. These companies are narrow minded and riddled with hiring complaints.
Also read about the appalling prejudice turn-down vote by the bonehead PTC council to veto the overwhelming supported senior complex. Why? NO MONEY IN IT!

Haddix: Seniors

Here is the comment I attempted to post on your website. It appears you don't allow comments for the public to see.

..............................

Over half those attending the meeting were seniors. They applauded when the vote was taken.

The emails were almost all opposed as were the Blogs on the Citizen.

NorSouth would have paid property tax at 100% since they are not exempt.

If you would have actually attended the Meeting you would have heard the reasons it was denied.

Please learn the facts before assuming the reasoning.

Seniors "descriminated"?

If the seniors to whom you refer have the spelling and grammar skills you exhibited in this post, I could see why they wouldn't be hired.

You almost even got the link to your website right!

Please, don't drink and type.
