On January 16, the signing ceremony of the strategic cooperation agreement between Yichuan County Government and Sinosteel Refractories Co., Ltd. was held in Sichuan. Bo Jun, Executive Director, Secretary of the Party Committee and General Manager of Sinosteel Refractories Co., Ltd., and county leaders Li Xinhong, Zhou Yongwei, Jin Chunchao, Mali Jun and Yan Xiaodong participated in the signing ceremony.
The project of Yichuan Refractories Industrial Park officially signed by Sinosteel marked a great step forward in the transformation and upgrading of Yichuan Refractories Industry, and also marked a new chapter in the friendly cooperation between Yichuan County and Sinosteel Refractories. At present, there are more than 80 refractory enterprises in Yichuan County, with more than 4000 employees and an annual output value of 2.3 billion yuan. Sinosteel Fire Resistance is the backbone enterprise of Sinosteel Group, and also one of the seven key projects of the national layout in Luoyang during the First Five-Year Plan period. As the pioneer and leader of refractory industry in China, enterprises have excellent tradition and deep accumulation. The relocation of Sinosteel Refractories to Yichuan to build Refractories Industrial Park is a Re-Entrepreneurship for the enterprise, and a charcoal delivery in the snow for Yichuan.
Since last year, the Lierje Ceramics Project has been accelerating. The company is relocating all production lines in Beijing, Shanghai and Luoyang as planned. At the same time, Yichuan County actively seeks intellectual support and invites experts from Luoni Hospital to conduct one-to-one tutoring to assist 23 local refractory enterprises in technological transformation and product upgrading. With the arrival of Sinosteel Refractories, the refractory industry in Yichuan County has reached a new and higher starting point, which will surely form a benign situation of accelerating transformation, complementary advantages and competing development.
In order to give full play to the resource advantages of the refractory industry in Yichuan County and the technological, market and brand advantages of China Steel Refractory Company, China Steel Refractory Company will implement the refractory industry park project in Yichuan County, create a new "Luo Nie", promote the integration of refractory enterprises in Yichuan County, and realize the upgrading and high-quality development of refractory industry. The total investment of the project is 2 billion yuan, covering an area of 800 mu. The production line of fine refractories with an annual output of 300,000 tons is planned and constructed, with an output value of 2.3 billion yuan and a profit and tax of 250 million yuan. The project is constructed in three phases.
The initiation and implementation of the project is a landmark measure in the process of Sinosteel's fire-resistant reform and development, and a new attempt of the economic development cooperation model between the two sides. The strategic cooperation between the two sides is not only of great strategic significance to the long-term development of Sinopec refractory industry, but also of great significance to elongate the chain of Yichuan refractory industry, to optimize the refractory industry structure, to build a complete refractory industry system, and to speed up the construction of Yichuan refractory industry base. I hope that all of you will work together and do everything possible to cultivate and manage the enterprise well, and really play a leading role in Luoyang Refractories Base in Yichuan, release the positive energy of the enterprise to the greatest extent, while pursuing economic benefits, fully fulfill social responsibilities, and make positive contributions to the promotion of high-quality economic development in Yichuan County.
