About SANY

SANY Europe is part of the SANY Group, a world-leading manufacturer of construction machinery, mobile harbour machinery and harbour cranes with a worldwide presence. SANY Europe has been based in Bedburg, Germany, since 2011. Each model has been specially developed for the European market and is distinguished by its efficient and reliable performance and its safe, straightforward, and comfortable operation.


An investment of €16million in a dedicated paint facility at its purpose-built plant in Bedburg, Germany, gives Sany direct control over this essential aspect of machine quality. Paint is applied in four layers to achieve a finish of 300 microns. This not only delivers a level of corrosion resistance that meets exacting ISO standards, but it also represents a quality that is arguably three times thicker than the standard finish produced by Sany’s competitors.

Reliable, Safe & Enviromentally Friendly

SANY empty container handlers offer better stability than any of their competitors. The SANY empty container handler is a workhorse in the container yard. Constantly moving, manoeuvring, lifting and setting. Productivity is the key to profitability, and the container handlers are engineered for gruelling long shifts in all weather conditions. With expansive visibility and many cab comfort features, SANY empty container handlers are easy to operate for the most demanding workloads.

World’s First Fully Electrical Empty Container Handler

The Sany SCDE907K is the world’s first full-size fully electric empty container handler. Drive is achieved through a single drive motor powering a wet-disc-brake axle and the energy consumption per container is 15% that of a diesel ECH equivalent. Noise is also reduced from 82dBA to 66dBA. The battery has a size of 332kwh which will provide a continuously working shift of 8-10 hours. A full recharge will take around 1 hour if required.  Maintenance costs are just 25% of the diesel machine. This is a consequence of doubling the service intervals and each service taking half the time

Quality Changes The World

Adhering to the mission statement of “Quality Changes the World”, Sany puts 5-7% of annual sales revenue into research and development. This is an effort to keep Sany products on the cutting edge of technology. At the end of 2019, SANY had applied for 9,151 patents, 7,298 of which were granted: ranking number one in the industry in China on both counts.
