In this newly created position, Frank has overall responsibility for manufacturing, sales, marketing and support for all SANY equipment products in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America. The appointment is effective immediately.

“SANY is a brand known for seeking strong growth through quality products and dedicated people,” said Liang Wengen, chairman of the board of SANY Group, based in Changsha, China. “Tim Frank’s vision, strategic thinking and record of accomplishment will serve SANY well as we grow our presence in the Americas. Tim knows what needs to be done to establish SANY as a market leader as it is in China and in other regions around the world. He will pursue this goal with vigor.”

“SANY is the fastest growing construction equipment manufacturer in the world by a significant margin, with unprecedented results in China and other markets around the world. Most of North America is just now learning of this legacy of success and achievement,” Frank said. “As I have grown to know SANY, it became obvious that something special was happening in this company. I am so excited to be a part of it. Construction contractors in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Central America will soon come to know SANY America for helping them get the job done in a competitive economy.”
