A leading area for the replacement of old growth drivers with new ones in Boshan District, a gathering place for high-end industrial development and an innovative demonstration area for investment promotion and talent attraction
We have relatively complete industrial system. Under the spillover effects of key projects, industries including high-end equipment manufacturing, new energy, health care and medicine have witnessed rapid development, which lead to the continuous extension of the industrial chains and the improvement of supporting capacity. At the same time, there are a number of backbone enterprises which have significant competitive advantages over their counterparts in China. The leading backbone enterprises represented by Hua Cheng Group, Shan Dong Shan Bo Electric Machine Group Co., Ltd, Nash, Shandong Boshan Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd have greatly driven the development of upstream and downstream enterprises in related industries, enjoying high popularity and reputation in respective industry.
We have strong brands and brand-name products. Nash, Zibo Yinshilai Textile (group) Co., Ltd, Hua Cheng Group, Shandong Longquan Pipeline Engineering Co., Ltd, Shandong Luqiao New Material Co., Ltd and other leading backbone enterprises have drafted or participated in the formulation of industry standards, which have great power of discourse in respective industry. Honorary titles, such as “New Industrial Industry Demonstration Base of Shandong Province”, “Energy-saving and Environmental Protection Industry Base of Shandong Province” and “Famous Chinese City of Pump Industry”, have become an important gilded signboard for foreign investment, cooperation and exchange in this region.
We have kept enhancing our capability of scientific and technological innovation. In recent years, the economic development zone has established technical cooperation with more than 20 institutions of higher education and research institutes, including Beihang University, Xi’an Jiaotong University and Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Six research institutes have been set up, including Boyi Smart Energy Research Institute, Electrical Technology Research Institute of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Zibo Mechanical and Electrical Pump Research Institute of Xi'an Jiaotong University and Boshan Green Digital Economy Research Institute. High-standard platforms and center, such as “casting cloud” service platform and Zibo Public Service Center for Inspection and Testing of High-efficiency Electric Motors have been established, which enhanced the R&D capability of local leading industries.
Electromechanical pump industry. The electromechanical pump industry focuses on the driving force of innovation, brand and capital, and highlights the synchronized research and manufacturing of complete intelligent equipment, key basic materials and core components with the aim to enhance the complete production network. Efforts are made to promote the deep integration of information technology and industrialization in equipment manufacturing industry, guide the suppliers to transform from providing traditional equipment or core components to multi-intelligent system solutions, and cultivate professional intelligent equipment system integrators which are able to provide overall design and solutions.
Intelligent automobile manufacturing. We stick to the orientation of developing “electric, intelligent, networked, lightweight” automobiles, and accelerate to cultivate the clusters of new energy auto parts. We have guided 6 leading backbone enterprises with assets over RMB 100 million and 12 with assets over RMB 10 million to speed up vertical integration and horizontal coordination so as to realize leapfrog development. By making the settlement of Geely Automobile in Zibo as a turning point, we adhere to the policy of playing the role of the leading enterprise and promoting the overall development with contributions from all players so as to form a good momentum of joint development.
