Dingli starts work on new ‘intelligent factory’ in China

Chinese aerial platform manufacturer Dingli has started work on its ‘intelligent factory phase 5’ project, located in Zhejiang province. Occupying a 61-acre site and a total construction area of 240,000 sq m, this new facility will be able to produce 4,000 machines per year, including electric boom lifts (36-50 m), electric scissor lifts (33-36 m), and vehicle-mounted insulated boom trucks, among others. 

The phase 5 development, with a total investment of 2.2 billion yuan, will “open a precedent in the field of intelligent manufacturing of large-scale, high-end intelligent aerial work platforms in the global industry,” said Dingli. It is being built in accordance with the “Future Factory” construction standards. 

Dingli is currently expanding its manufacturing plants in phases. According to the company, the entire project so far has already covered 178 acres and a construction area of over 590,000 sq m.

Dingli revealed that in the past year, it has “taken the lead in realising the electrification of a full range of products in the industry.” Relying on the strength of global technology research and development, the company has continued to deepen the strategy of "new era of electrification of non-road mobile machinery”, and its products have been sold to more than 80 countries and regions around the world.

In 2020, Dingli acquired a 24% stake in the German company Teupen, which also provided strong technical support for the development of its insulated boom trucks. 

As part of an internationalisation process, Dingli is expanding its global sales network – in North America, Europe, South America, the Middle East, and Australia.
