ZHANGZHOU, China, Jan. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- China Zenix Auto International Limited (NYSE: ZX) ("Zenix Auto" or "the Company"), the largest commercial vehicle wheel manufacturer in China in both the aftermarket and OEM market by sales volume, announced today that it has signed a contract to supply advanced tubeless steel wheels to the Cargotec (Shanghai) Trading Co, Ltd. in 2015.
Zenix Auto will supply its tubeless steel wheels to Cargotec Shanghai's heavy-duty terminal tractors. These wheels are produced with Zenix Auto's new patented steel rolling process. The Company's advanced tubeless steel wheels can carry heavier loads and are less susceptible to deformation and damage compared with traditionally rolled steel wheels.
Cargotec provides end-to-end cargo handling solutions, with integrated cargo and load handling solutions and services for the maritime transportation and offshore industries. It provides container and cargo handling equipment and related services, automation and integration solutions as well as Navis terminal operating systems (TOS), Bromma spreaders and Siwertell bulk handling systems. Cargotec possesses the market's widest product range and global service network for cargo and load handling needs. No single competitor matches the breadth of Cargotec's products, automation and service offerings, or its global presence.
The Port of Shanghai is situated at the middle of the 18,000km-long Chinese coastline, where the Yangtse River flows into the sea. It is China's largest comprehensive port and one of the country's most important gateways for foreign trade.
Mr. Jianhui Lai, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "This contract win demonstrates the effectiveness of our research and development to generate new customers and sales. Shanghai is one of the busiest ports in the world and an important transit point for the export and import of products in China. Our wheels are improving the efficiency of moving goods through this busy port. As we continue to improve the durability, weight and overall quality of our wheels, we strengthen current customer relationships and expect to attract additional new customers. "
