What has Sany's performance been like during the last couple of years?
We have introduced our excavators to the Indian market recently but in spite of this, we have done good business within a short period due to our global brand image. Our product quality proved our stability in the market. Since we are a new player in India, we are focusing more on developing infrastructure to provide prompt after sales support. We are overwhelmed with the response from our existing customers which is manifested by way of us getting 50 per cent of our business from existing customers.
