The opening of the company’s regional office in Johannesburg, South Africa in 2006 was a significant milestone. This office caters to the Southern Africa region, including countries such as Botswana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, Swaziland, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. In May 2022, SANY expanded its footprint in Africa with the opening of its Namibia office, reinforcing its commitment to the continent’s growth.
SANY’s presence in Africa extends across various sectors. In the excavation segment, their world-class excavators, ranging from 1.6 to 300 tonnes, deliver versatility, efficiency, safety, and unrivaled performance.

When it comes to hauling, SANY’s range of articulated dump trucks, rigid dump trucks, and wide-body dump trucks can handle demanding jobsites with payloads ranging from 40 to 150 tonnes. These trucks promise low operating costs, catering to diverse mining requirements. The company’s expertise extends to port machinery, where they have made significant strides since their entry into the industry in 2005. Their offerings include container mobile equipment such as reach stackers, stackers, and electric trucks, as well as port equipment like quay cranes, yard bridges, and door seats. SANY aims to be a global leader in port machinery and a provider of terminal automation solutions.
Beyond excavation, loading, hauling, and port machinery, SANY also provides motor graders, rollers, cranes, concrete equipment, and piling rigs, offering comprehensive solutions to the mining industry.
