Sany America Building New Georgia R&D Facility

October 24, 2011

Sany America announced it will invest approximately $25 million to build a new research and development center alongside its corporate headquarters in Peachtree City, Ga. Plans for the new facility, which will create 300 jobs, were announced as Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal visited the main offices of Sany Group in Changsha, China.

This week, Gov. Deal traveled to China to attract further capital investments to the southern state.  The announcement to build the new R&D center comes as the company continues to localize its workforce and product development.

“This expansion stems not only from the success Sany already enjoys in Georgia, but from the relationship that has developed between Sany and our state as well,” said Deal. “The talent from our academic institutions ensures that Sany will have a deep supply of the skilled workers needed to stay at the forefront of innovation,” he added.

In February, the company welcomed Gov. Deal to celebrate completion of Phase One of construction at the company’s 400,000-square-foot headquarters in Peachtree City. To date, Sany has invested $60 million in the site, which will assemble crawler and rough terrain cranes, excavators and concrete pump trucks.
