LiuGong Asia Pacific’s Singapore offices to house Dressta
LiuGong Machinery’s Asia Pacific subsidiary Singapore headquarters will now house the Asia Pacific arm of Dressta.
The global construction equipment manufacturer’s move follows the company’s acquisition of Polish company HSW’s (HutaStalowaWola) civil engineering machinery division and its distribution arm, Dressta (known as LiuGong Dressta Machinery) in January 2012.
“The successful integration of both businesses marks a tremendous opportunity for LiuGong to achieve further growth in this region. We see Dressta colleagues as our extended family members. Hence, not a single staff member was laid off during the integration of LiuGong and Dressta,” says Joseph Wong, who has taken on the role of general manager of Dressta Asia Pacific, while retaining his current position as customer service director of LiuGong Machinery Asia Pacific.
LiuGong Dressta Machinery manufactures crawler dozers at its plant in the Podkarpackie province in south-western Poland. The company also produces wheeled loaders, loggers, pipe layers, conveyer belt shifters, motor graders and machines customised for landfill applications.
