XCMG European Research Center

At our state-of-the-art research and development center, the Group’s largest research and development center outside China, highly qualified experts optimize and develop technologies in the fields of hydraulics, transmissions, drive systems, electronics and software, and control technology.

The Krefeld site is XCMG’s international innovation platform and thus an important part of our global R&D strategy. Here we work on advanced, efficient, clean and innovative solutions for our European customers. Here the future is being developed.

From idea to test

The test facilities at our development center are optimally equipped and offer ambitious engineers ideal working conditions. We love short paths and fast implementations. Digital workstations and test facilities are located in close proximity to each other and ensure the direct exchange of results and know-how. In-house production facilities allow us to produce, test and optimize prototypes in the shortest possible time. It often takes only a few days from a concrete idea to the production of prototypes and the necessary hardware to testing.

Thus, innovative solutions and state-of-the-art technologies are created at the Krefeld European Research Center on the basis of advanced and sophisticated design methods and laboratory tests – from concept, design and prototype construction to machine verification, CE conformity and homologation. Our goal is continuous improvement. Our machines shall become more efficient, more powerful, more user-friendly, more sustainable and more ecological.

The best of both worlds

Highly qualified and motivated engineers from more than ten countries work in our development center. With their many years of experience and vast know-how, they form an enormously large pool of expertise from which all departments of our company benefit. In doing so, we bring together knowledge from China, Europe and around the world to generate benefits for our customers. Worldwide!

We are in constant contact with our customers and thus know their needs and requirements for new machine technology very well. Through this open culture of exchange, we jointly develop and optimize innovative solutions for both the European and global markets. This creates added value and ultimately business success for our customers. And their successes are our successes.
