China National Heavy Duty Truck Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "China National Heavy Duty Truck") is the earliest enterprise in my country to develop and manufacture heavy-duty vehicles, and is currently the leading enterprise in the domestic heavy-duty vehicle industry. The predecessor of the company was established in 1958, when it was called Jinan Automobile Factory.

History of SINOTRUK

In April 1960, the factory trial-produced China's first heavy-duty vehicle, the Yellow River JN150 8-ton heavy-duty vehicle, ending the history of China's inability to produce heavy-duty vehicles. In 1983, in order to completely change the "lack of heavy duty" situation in the automobile industry and solve the low-level development of the heavy-duty automobile industry, China National Heavy Duty Truck Group was established, which is an enterprise directly under the central government and is under the leadership of the State Council. In 1987, it was listed separately in the national plan, and in 1991, it was listed as one of the 56 national comprehensive pilot enterprise groups of the State Council. In 1993, it was approved as a pilot enterprise for authorized operation of state-owned assets, and it is one of the first pilot enterprises to implement authorized operation of state-owned assets in my country. In July 2000, the State Council decided to reform and reorganize Sinotruk Group, and the main part was delegated to the Shandong Provincial Government. On January 18, 2001, a new Sinotruk Group was established on this basis, which is now a provincial key state-owned sole proprietorship. Enterprise, the registered capital of the company is 976.58 million yuan, and the paid-in capital is 996.58 million yuan.
