On May 7, 2016, the city Xiangyang in China in the Hubei Province, was flooded after heavy rain. The maximum rainfall was recorded with 89 mm. The overflow of various culverts at various main roads caused extensive floods, the deepest part of which reached 2.5 m. During the afternoon, the Urban Construction Commission quickly launched a flood control plan, so that six emergency rescue teams had to immediately start operating at the most serious sites. Ten Wacker Neuson PT6LT trash pumps were deployed to remove the water and to deal with the mud created during the drainage process. The immediate reaction helped to minimize the delay in citizens' travel schedules due to the bad weather.
In April, work will begin on the expansion of Wacker Neuson’s light equipment production site in Reichertshofen. The company will be investing around EUR 10 million in a new R&D center for light equipment between now and the start of 2017.
