This time, we are honoured to introduce Sinoboom electric boom products to Malaysia. Judging by our testing of AB14EJ and AB16EJ, and customer feedback, we are full of confidence in the future deepening cooperation with Sinoboom."

In the future, we will continue to work hand in hand with Schmetterling to provide customers with all-round solutions in terms of products, aftermarket services and financing, so as to help the healthy and sustainable development of the industry.”
