Shougang Changzhi Steel Co., Ltd.

Founded in 1946, Shougang Changzhi Steel & Iron Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Changzhi Steel & Iron) is the first iron and steel enterprise (Gu County Iron Factory) built by the Communist Party of China in the revolutionary base area of Taihang Mountains. When Premier Zhou Enlai visited Shanxi in 1956, he said: “The Gu County Iron Factory is the first iron factory officially built by our Party in the base area. It’s built through self-reliance, diligence and thrift.” In 2009, the joint reorganization of Changzhi Steel & Iron Company and Shougang Group became the first real cross-regional reorganization of steel enterprises after the promulgation of the “Plan for the Adjustment and Revitalization of Iron and Steel Industry” of the country.

Located at the junction of Shanxi, Hebei and Henan Provinces, Changzhi Steel & Iron enjoys convenient transportation: Taiyuan-Jiaozuo Railway, Handan-Changzhi Railway, G55 Expressway, G22 Expressway, as well as 207, 208, 309 and Changzhi-Handan Highways run through the north, the south, the east and the west; as the second largest airport in Shanxi Province, Changzhi has opened many routes to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other cities. The company integrates mining (coal, limestone, etc.), coking, ironmaking, steelmaking, rolling, cement manufacturing, engineering construction, forging machinery manufacturing and real estate development. It has the capacity to produce 2.6 million tons, 3.6 million tons and 3.75 million tons of iron and steel annually.

Moreover, far from the urban area, located in the downwind direction of the local dominant wind direction, Changzhi Steel & Iron has an advantageous geographical position. Changzhi Steel & Iron also established Shanxi Changqin Coal Industry Co., Ltd. jointly with Shanxi Qinxin Energy Group. At present, Changzhi Steel & Iron has hundreds of millions of tons of coking coal and limestone resources.
