Chinese excavators coming to North America

Yuchai Group, which builds diesel engines and a host of construction machines, is introducing an excavator line in North America.

Initial product offering is a complete line of YUCHAI excavators ranging from 1.5 ton to 22.5 ton weight class models. YUCHAI has been manufacturing excavators since 1990, for the domestic and export markets.

The latest generation of YUCHAI excavators incorporate advanced technologies and components commonly found in North American products. Subsequent offerings will include a line of industrial forklifts, compact dozers, generator sets, skid steer loaders and diesel engines.

Seeking Alpha has an interesting post about this company from a long-term investor. It trades under the symbol CYD.
