Sany, a Chinese multinational specialized in heavy machinery manufacturing, announced its intention to create 3,000 new jobs across Germany, India and Brazil. The goal is to invest €300m in a bid to expand its recent acquisition, the German company Putzmeister, and to establish a stronger presence outside China.

The Sany Group is a large manufacturer of construction equipment. The company has increased its sales by roughly 10 times in the past five years, and is now seen as a competitor to global leaders in the construction machinery business such as Caterpillar and Komatsu.

So far, no timeline for the business expansion has been announced, although some sources report that hiring is expected to start immediately.
