Ltd., declaring their business combination in China.
Among nearly 5,000 machine tool enterprises with the annual sales revenue of over RMB20 million, SMTCL acts as the largest machine tool manufacturer in China and even in the world, followed by DMTG. In response to the mutations in the machine tool market in the past two years, Chinese machine tool enterprises have adopted a series of positive and effective measures, such as transformation and upgrading, overseas market exploration, development of new businesses.
DMTG: DMTG has accelerated the development of the CNC machine tool business. In May 2013, the company and HNC cooperated to develop high-end intelligent CNC system. At the same time, it focuses on medium and high-end smart machine tools, and successfully won order from Deutz (Dalian) Engine Co., Ltd for new-type flexible production lines, with the contract value of RMB500 million.
BYJC: BYJC transfers from heavy machine tools to medium and high-end machine tools. Heavy machine tools contribute more than 70% of BYJC's revenue. In 2013, the company has changed the development direction in order to meet market demand. Additionally, BYJC's medium-range series represented by gantry lathes, floor-type boring lathes, vertical lathes and horizontal lathes also develop towards the high-end direction.
