Shandong Lingong Construction Machinery Co. Ltd. (SDLG) will introduce its brand of wheel loaders to North American consumers in the second half of 2013.
The company will launch two models—the LG938L and LG959—as part of SDLG’s international expansion program. The products will undergo an introduction phase with select dealers before a larger rollout across North America.
Based in Linyi, China, SDLG has been a subsidiary of the Volvo Group since Volvo’s 2007 investment in the company doubled SDLG’s annual productivity. SDLG has recently entered other international markets, which include Latin America, Russia, Oceania, Africa, the Middle East and much of Asia.
"The availability of SDLG machines in North America will provide customers with a new alternative when it comes to purchasing their next wheel loader," said Al Quinn, SDLG's director in North America. "We believe that the SDLG value promise of high reliability in a value priced product will be appealing to many customers, especially those who would otherwise look at purchasing a used machine.”
