History[edit]

The company was founded in 1992. It is the subsidiary company of China Communications Construction Company (CCCC). It specializes in designing, manufacturing, erecting, commissioning, shipping in fully erected state, after-sales servicing and developing new port machinery products. Its main products include container cranes (QCs) (supplied eight for London Gateway),[1][2] rubber-tyred gantry cranes (RTGs), bulk-material ship loaders and unloaders, bucket-wheel stackers and reclaimers, portal cranes, floating cranes engineering vessels and large steel bridge structures.

In September 2014, ZPMC formed an Indian subsidiary, ZPMC Engineering (India) Private Limited, based in Navi Mumbai.[4]

San Francisco–Oakland Bay Bridge[edit]

The company is the fabricator of the new Bay Bridge located in the San Francisco Bay Area in the USA. Although the company had no previous experience in bridge construction, California officials selected it based on the advantages of "huge steel fabrication facilities, its large low-cost work force and its solid finance."[5] The project employed 3,000 workers who built a main bridge tower and completed 28 bridge decks.[5]
