This year’s VIP Customer Service Center enabled our buyers to communicate face-to-face to our exhibitors about products and services that meet their needs. Senior executives and other high-ranking professionals from engineering, procurement, equipment, technology and other departments of leading industry’s companies such as Master Kong, Yili, Baosteel, COFCO, PetroChina, Sinopec, SAIC, Shanghai Electric, Shanghai Jahwa, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever (just to name a few) used this opportunity to talk about main technical and product requirements for electroplating wastewater, pure water treatment and solid waste disposal in industrial parks.
We are proud to announce that one of the industry’s best performers in China, Baoshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., is also our VIP Diamond Customer member. The company is headquartered in Shanghai and engaged in the manufacture and sale of iron and steel products. Their business segments include steel manufacturing, processing and distribution, information technology, e-commerce, chemical industry, and finance. Its products include cold-rolled carbon steel coils, hot-rolled carbon steel coils, and steel pipe products. The company was founded in 2000 in Shanghai, China and it is a subsidiary of state-owned holding company Baosteel Group, and listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. Established in 1977, Baosteel Group launched a steel plant with technical assistance from Japan’s Nippon Steel, now Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal, and other steelmakers. Baosteel Group owns some 80% of the company.
The company’s main plant is located in the Baoshan district of Shanghai. This month, its new steel plant will start operations in Zhanjiang, Guangdong Province, with an annual production capacity of 10 million tons. It will be the first large steel plant in the province, which is home to many factories of electronics and auto makers, and will also be positioned as a supply center for Southeast Asia. It has about 38,000 employees.

“At present, Baosteel Co., Ltd. is vigorously promoting to reach the three standards that include ultra-low emission of exhaust gas, zero discharge of waste water, no solid waste outside the factory, and four types of treatment that include sanitization, making the environment more green, creating an environment that is beautiful and cultural. Environmental awareness is crucial in making environmental protection a priority in all aspects. For example, in the field of zero discharge of wastewater and reuse of wastewater, we will think about how to minimize environmental pollution. I enjoy visiting exhibitions, especially those specializing in the professional wastewater treatment. This is a perfect opportunity to meet old friends and partners, as well as some exhibitors from previous years, but also to meet some new faces. This is a good way to make new friends, and explore new technologies and products in the industry.”
