Yifan targets wider global appeal
Chinese aggregates processing equipment firm Yifan says its comprehensive product portfolio is in big demand not only in China, but also in other markets, including Latin America, the Middle East and Africa.
Headquartered in Zhengzhou, eastern China, Yifan offers a complete range of crushing, screening and washing plants to the aggregates sector. The company has manufacturing and assembly factories in Zhengzhou, Jiangxi and Shanghai, and offices in Beijing, and emphasises that its production process is based on lean manufacturing. Yifan also has a highly successful wear parts supply business.
Demi Wei says Yifan is keen to offer its comprehensive range of aggregates crushing, screening and washing plants to customers in markets outside its traditional sales territories in Asia, Africa and the Middle East
“We are renowned for the quality of our machines and for our aftersales service,” said Demi Wei, Yifan sales manager. “The Chinese market is good and it’s getting better. Our government is supporting the construction market in cities and has introduced more environmental regulation around aggregates processing. Both are good things and we are gaining more domestic sales.”
Wei said Yifan’s Zhengzhou operation alone had posted RMB 1 billion (US143.76mn) in unit sales in 2017. “We want to develop our sales reach and sell into Europe and North America. Currently, we are focusing on appointing more sales agents.”
Among Yifan’s many successful installations are a large up to 400tonnes/hour civil manufactured sand production line for eastern China-based Zhejiang Richangsheng Building Materials Company; a 250tonnes/hour granite production line for a customer in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; and a 200tonnes/hour stationary stone crushing plant with steel foundation for a customer in Sri Lanka.
