The Shihuantong Study Tour recently began its exploration of China’s economic strengths, delving into the industrial centers of Liancheng and Shanghai. With a focus on Shanghai Engineering, the tour aims to understand the essentials for achieving high-quality development in the pump and valve sector. This initiative comes as China makes significant progress in the mid and low-end of the industry, highlighting the importance of elevating the standards in this vital field.
Shanghai Engineering: Striving for Excellence in China’s Pump and Valve Industry
As China aims for high-quality economic growth, the pump and valve industry faces a crucial challenge—dependence on imported high-end products. To secure ongoing growth, Chinese companies must quickly develop high-end and international capabilities for domestic pump and valve products, especially in the face of rising global tensions and uncertainties.
With over 200,000 pump and valve manufacturing companies in China, fierce market competition is inevitable. Standing out amidst this competition becomes a strategic imperative for companies seeking high-quality development and enhanced competitiveness. To address this need and foster cross-regional business opportunities, WieTec organised the Shihuantong Corporate Study Tour—a meticulously tailored series of business exchange activities spanning 29 provinces and cities across China.
The first phase of this study tour witnessed a confluence of over 10,000 VIP buyers and 1,000 well-known brands. A contingent of more than 20 industry professionals, including distribution agents, engineering companies, and industrial end users, delved into a comprehensive exploration of Shanghai Liancheng (Group) Co., Ltd. and Shanghai Hugong Valve Factory (Group) Co., Ltd.
Shanghai Liancheng (Group) Co., Ltd.: Leading in Fluid Industry Excellence
We started our tour at Shanghai Liancheng (Group) Co., Ltd., a big company that makes pumps, valves, and environmental protection gear. They have over 5,000 different products used in important areas like city management, water conservation, construction, fire protection, and more.
Liancheng Group’s commitment to becoming a premier domestic fluid industry manufacturing company, coupled with its emphasis on environmentally friendly and energy-saving products, was underscored. The tour included an immersive visit to the exhibition hall, providing insights into the technology and applications of Liancheng Group’s products. The group’s focus on both internal development and external expansion, coupled with a commitment to innovation, left an indelible mark on the participants.
The tour culminated with a visit to the production factory, where the latest industry technology was analyzed. Discussions and exchanges during this session contributed significantly to fostering future collaborations, establishing a foundation for mutually beneficial partnerships.
Shanghai Hugong Valve Factory (Group) Co., Ltd.: Excelling in Valve Manufacturing Tradition
The study tour’s second stop unveiled the rich legacy of Shanghai Hugong Valve Factory (Group) Co., Ltd. A major player in the valve manufacturing arena, the company, with decades of history, stands as a leading manufacturer and supplier of general valves.
The tour provided a comprehensive overview of the company’s background, corporate culture, and its pivotal role in China’s valve industry. The visit to the production factory, equipped with advanced machining centers and technology, provided a deeper understanding of the products and showcased the company’s commitment to quality and continuous innovation.
Returning to the conference room, the study tour participants engaged in a productive discussion, laying the groundwork for future collaboration between the visiting buyers and Shanghai Industrial Group.
