You can’t achieve success without determination, dedication and hard work. Starting from working in a machinery factory at Hunan Province, Liang Wengen worked hard, and it paid off with a simple idea of manufacturing construction equipments. He co-founded a small factory of welding material in Lianyuan, his hometown, which later became foundation for his Sany Group. Today, it is one of the biggest privately owned construction equipment makers in China. Born in a family of peasants, he is a self-made man with a net worth of around US $ 5.2 billion.
Since 1978, Liang has been a significant part of the economic growth of China. He started by working with a state-run plant of arms, and now, he tops the lists of wealthiest individuals in the country. He established Sany Group in the 1980s with three other partners. At that time, it was the first Chinese company to conduct a structure reform of split share, and it internationalized itself by establishing overseas acquisitions.
