Introduction to China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co., Ltd.

China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Sinotruk), formerly known as Jinan Automobile Manufacturing General Factory, was founded in 1930, which is the cradle of Chinas heavy-duty vehicle industry. In 1960, it produced Chinas first heavy-duty vehicle, the Yellow River JN150 8-ton truck, ending the history of Chinas inability to produce heavy-duty vehicles. On May 4, 1960, Chairman Mao Zedong inspected Jinan, visited the prototype and gave it high praise. On January 11, 1966, Chairman Zhu De inscribed Yellow River in his own handwriting. In the early stages of socialist construction, the Yellow River vehicle gained nationwide fame and made significant contributions to the development of the national economy and national defense construction, becoming one of the iconic achievements of the Chinese nations self-reliance and hard work. In 1983, under the care of Comrade Deng Xiaoping, the Austrian Steyr heavy-duty vehicle project was successfully introduced, making it the first domestic enterprise to comprehensively introduce foreign heavy-duty vehicle manufacturing technology. Steyr once became a synonym for heavy trucks in China.
