“We are very pleased to establish an international partnership with CIFA and Zoomlion Capital,” commented Cesar Alonso, European Commercial Lead, Construction, Transportation & Industrial at DLL. “In a relatively traditional market, CIFA is leading the way with their pioneering approach to new machines, and continuously pushing the boundaries on what has previously been created. Through our dedicated international client management, specialized asset knowledge and strategic marketing resources, we will support CIFA to execute their growth strategy, which builds on our shared vision of innovation and sustainability. By establishing this partnership, CIFA, Zoomlion Capital and DLL will be able to provide flexible, tailored solutions to best serve changing customer needs.”
