In Good Company

You can learn a lot about a person from the company they keep, and the same is true in business. As LiuGong has grown and developed, we’ve made some strategic decisions about partnerships, joint ventures and supplier relationships. Among the key relationships are those with engine manufacturer Cummins® and transmissions and axle manufacturer ZF® – two world class brands.
