Australia's Seven Group to sell Chinese mining machinery business

SYDNEY, Aug 22 (Reuters) - Australia’s Seven Group Holdings said on Tuesday it would sell its Chinese mining machinery division WesTrac China to Chinese firm Lei Shing Hong Machinery for A$540 million ($428.33 million).

Lei Shing Hong Machinery is a subsidiary of Chinese conglomerate Lei Shing Hong Limited which distributes Caterpillar earthmoving, mining and construction equipment throughout eastern China and Taiwan.
