In December 2016 the Chinese government announced plans to expand the country’s high-speed rail network from the current 19,000 kilometres to 30,000 kilometres (18,600 miles) by 2020, part of public infrastructure spending aimed at shoring up economic growth as well the project aimed at reducing pollution, gas emissions and congestion. The network would connect more than 80 percent of China’s major cities, Vice Transport Minister Yang Yudong said.
Speaking with Scott Yuan, Strikers Sales Director in China, and asking him what has been the greatest driver of success, it’s easy to see why the Striker range of machines has been so widely accepted in China. “We took some time to learn what the customers and operators wanted from our crushers, it wasn’t about money or even production, it was all about consistency and ease of operation making sure that their workers can maintain and repair the machines, they didn’t want machines that were over complicated or had too many added extras” said Yuan. It was a no brainer and the standard Striker mobile range has fitted the requirements and ticked all of our customers boxes, Striker pride ourselves on having a strong reliable crusher that does the job day in and day out.
Due to the rapidly growing population of Striker machines now in China, Striker has set up a new dedicated parts and service facility in Nanjing and has a sales head office in Shanghai with dealers now located in provinces across China.
