As an enterprise restructured from a scientific research institute, Zoomlion has established a benign system and institution in which science and technology supports industry while industry reversely feeds science and technology by constantly promoting reforms, making it a model for the transformation of state-owned scientific research institutes. As a listed company that has established modern corporate system, Zoomlion has obtained both economic and social benefits through performing mergers and acquisitions, participating in the reform, reorganization and restructuring of traditional state-owned enterprises and putting new institution and new technologies into the old enterprises. In the new round of reform after the 3rd Plenary Session of 18th CPC Central Committee, Zoomlion’s institutional innovation has been set as a good example of mixed ownership by SASAC.
Zoomlion pioneers in integrating overseas resources in China’s construction machinery industry; by integrating many high-quality assets around the world via capital leverage, the company has realized fast expansion and has established a global network of manufacturing, sales and services. Up to now, Zoomlion has successively merged PowerMole Company in England, CIFA Company in Italy, M-tec Company in Germany, Raxtar Company in Netherlands and Ladurner Company in Italy, and very good results have been achieved. In 2008, Zoomlion merged CIFA Company in Italy, the 3rd largest concrete machinery manufacturer in the world, and became the pioneer and leader in the internalization of Chinese construction machinery. What’s more, this merger and acquisition has been cited by Harvard University as a classic case.
