 CNHTC Jinan Industrial Zone

    In Jan. 18th, 2001, through a number of reforms and restructures, CNHTC has built a new corporate system and made the company operate activelySince reformation and reorganization, CNHTC has raised its sales profit from CNY 6.2 billion to 23 billion Yuan. The production and selling of truck CUB raised from 7000 to 45000, the market share was improved from less than 4% to 18% and reached three “Number one” in China: number one in the segment of heavy tractors sold in China, number one in the segment of large power engine(>300hp) sold in China and number one in the segment of heavy duty truck equipped with engine (more than 10 liter) in China.

    In July 15th, 2005, the “Top 500” in the mechanical companies in China was announced and CNHTC ranked 17th. And in “Top 500 of large-size” in mechanical companies, it ranked 15th. From 2004 to 2005, several national leaders, Mr. Wu Bangguo, Mr. Wang Zhaoguo, Ms. Wuyi have visited CNHTC in succession, they all praised the development of CNHTC and put forward ardent expectation.                 


 On March 31th, 2004, the VOLVO truck made by Joint Venture went off the assembly line                   

        CNHTC performed technique innovation; it has invested 4 billion to more than 100 programs to make man craft and scale production linked quickly with advanced enterprise in the world. Jinan Industrial Aera, Changqing Industrial Aera and Zhangqiu Industrial Area have been built up in succession; the digital frame line, new assembly line, HOWO welding line, painting line ect. Which are representatives of international advanced level have been put into use. The production capacity of Jinan Power Co., Ltd, which was been invested nearly CNY 1 billion, reaches 60000 units and has developed times featured engine for heavy-duty truck. This kind of engine represents the top technical level of 10 liters emission engine in China and has made truck CUB producer establishes technical criterion by itself, thereby to make sure the upgrade with truck CUB technology. By using the technology advantages of itself and absorbs the advanced technology of the heavy-duty truck around the world, CNHTC has developed series heavy-duty trucks such as HOWO, STEYR-King, Golden-Prince, HAOJUN, HAOYUN, Huanghe Commander, Huanghe General and so on, which includes more than 1380 models. CNHTC focuses on the protection of knowledge property right and makes more than 600 technologies get the national patent.                                       

HOWO heavy duty truck under CNHTC own knowledge property right went off the assembly line on oct.28, 2004

     To strength the marketing construction of “Great market, great marketing”, and to build up comparatively sound marketing network system.                        

  New assembly line with expedite logistics

      The construction of information system makes production according to orders, multi-model assembly, suppliers in the workshops, assembly without stockpile and design without paper come true. “One line” production management, supplying chain management system, workshop management system, “One line” payment for truck management system and “One line” after sales service management system etc. have improved the management and scale production increasingly and increased core competitive force.


Engine machining center at world level Imported robots for welding


     Implementing the high quality low cost strategy makes development for new product, technical craft, tender purchase, energy saving and consumption reducing, financial control, material flow reconstructing and so on reduce the cost in all aspects. For 5 years, each vehicle cost was reduced  CNY 10,000 Yuan.


Painting line at world level for heavy trucks


      The superiority of technology, brand, cost, price, human sources and networks and so on agglomerated the growth potential for CNHTC. CNHTC will unceasingly pushes four big strategies to gradually realize the internationalization of product, market, capital, mechanism and brand.



Development Milestone
SINOTRUK is the domestic cradle of the heavy-duty auto industry.

In 1960, we assembled the HUANGEHE JN150 8-ton truck — the first China-made heavy-duty truck.

In 1983, our production process for heavy-duty vehicles was successfully integrated with the manufacturing technology of Steyr, Austria.

In 2007, our company became listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange main board, in the form of red chips.

In 2009, we founded the National Engineering Research Center for Heavy-duty Trucks. In the same year, we established strategically relevant cooperation with the MAN Group, Germany. MAN owns 25% plus 1 shares of SINOTRUK (Hong Kong) Co., Ltd. From this mutually beneficial business relationship we derived engine types such as D20, D26, and D08. These engines are applicable for medium and heavy truck axles. The infusion of complete vehicle technology from MAN has provided a solid foundation for the long-term development of our enterprise.
