Forty Years - Tan: Pursue Your Dream


For over 40 years, Tan has always been busy and hardly had any rest. Many had asked him why. He replied, “I do all of these because I have a dream.”

Tan: Dream is My Power


In the process of realizing dreams and pursuing new dreams, Tan led WEICHAI to cross multiple obstacles.

In 2002, he provided that we will make engines of WEICHAI into China’s “Intel Chip” when he saw the enterprise that was newly recovered from the difficulties.

In 2004, WEICHAI went public in HK and realized a sales income of over RMB10billion. He suggested to lead the power industry and pursue the goal of RMB20billion. The goal was soon realized. And the “WEICHAI Speed” and “WEICHAI Phenomenon” that are now popular in machinery industry were born.

In 2013, the sales income of WEICHAI exceeded RMB100billion, and Tan suggested to realize RMB200billion.

On December 18, 2017, WEICHAI Group realized sales income of over RMB200billion.

Standing on the new starting point, he said that he still had another dream. In other words, he would like to lead the world, rather than just overtaking his competitors, and try to be a powerful power in World Top 500.

So, he has never ceased to pursue his dreams.

Tan: My Team, My Fortune


Tan has said that he cherishes his team even though they had quarrels and disputes. Finally, all of them share same values about making further development, pursuing dreams and making joint efforts hand in hand.

October 20, 2016, managers team swore an oath.

Over the past 20 years, not a single one manager in his team left. He and his team grow in the culture of “Responsibility, Communication and Inclusiveness”.

Tan: Hardship Makes Clear All the Time


WEICHAI was reborn in the bankruptcy. It experienced pains, so it values happiness. Always remembering hardship can help us realize our dreams.

On October 7, 2013, Tan suggested that true competition now starts after considering the trend of vertical integration in the industry.

On April 22, 2017, though seemingly prosperous as it is, Tan was quite calm. He and his team pondered upon the reality behind prosperity and pointed out the future directions for the transformation and upgrading of the enterprise.

On September 30, 2017, facing the new round of challenges of industrial revolution, Tan warned all staff that no one could survive without any changes.

Over the past two decades, Tan has never ceased to think over and predict the crisis. He said that hardship makes him clear all the time.
