Xuzhou and the Xuzhou Planning
Museum by Bradken staff and

us with educating and promoting
Xuzhou to our guests.

spectacular event. The day started
with all guests attending a Tour of

facility. Highlighting our capabilities
in the manufacture of rail wagons,
truck trays and excavator buckets.

worked tirelessly on its design,
