Group News-HBIS Group-Being The Most Competitive Steel Enterprise

Set up HBIS Material Technology Research Institute to Seize the Commanding Heights of Material Technology Development in the Future

On July 27, HBIS Material Technology Research Institute founding conference held in Shijiazhuang, and restructured HBIS Steel Research Institute into HBIS Material Technology Research Institute, to effort to forge iron and vanadium titanium material also original technology innovation and application of the highlands, construct industry leading, world-class applied technology research institute. This is a concrete action of HBIS to actively respond to the national supply-side structural reform and high-quality development, and it is also a strategic decision of HBIS to adapt to the steel industry into a deep adjustment period and accelerate the transformation and upgrading of "steel to materials, manufacturing to services".

Yu Yong, chairman of HBIS, delivered a speech at the inaugural meeting and inaugurated HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute together with Wang Lanyu, General Manager of HBIS Group. HBIS Deputy General Manager Wang Xindong presided over the inaugural meeting. HBIS Deputy General Manager, Li Yiren introduced the plan for the establishment of HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute.  

Yu Yong said that a manufacturing enterprise, only to keep up with the pace of development of the Times, and the national development strategy of the same frequency resonance, in order to achieve more connotation, more quality, higher quality of good and fast development. The strong resilience and vitality of the Chinese economy, as well as the advantages of its super-large market, in particular, the continuous deepening of supply-side structural reform and acceleration of high-quality development have given rise to more new industries, new forms and new models of business, and created new opportunities and space for the development of the steel industry. The establishment of HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute is a concrete action of HBIS, as a large state-owned enterprise, to actively respond to the national supply-side structural reform and high-quality development, and also a strategic decision made by HBIS to adapt to the in-depth adjustment period of the steel industry.

Yu Yong said that after equipment upgrading, product upgrading and location adjustment, HBIS has a strong process equipment, technology and talent reserve, with a solid foundation to advance into the steel and iron field, but also more need to play the power of science and technology and talent support role. With the establishment of HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute as a new starting point, HBIS will further promote the transformation and upgrading of "steel to materials, manufacturing to services", maximize the release of equipment, talent, technology, innovation and other all-factor development advantages, so that the products have more technical content and greater competitive value.  HBIS will comprehensively improve the effective and high-quality supply of iron and steel materials, strive to solve the "bottleneck" problem of relying on imports of high-end materials, promote the steel industry to achieve high-level science and technology self-reliance, and contribute to the construction of a more independent, safe and rigid supply chain.

Yu yong said, around "steel to materials, manufacturing to the service" the transformation and upgrading, HBIS will deeply grasp the national industrial structure adjustment and the demand of the social transformation and economic development, closely follow up of new industry demand for iron base of new materials, new business modes and on the basis of constantly updated HBIS material and market directory, one step ahead in the new industries and new forms, in the new round of development and new market layout, HBIS will further form new comparative advantages and competitive advantages in products and technologies, and promote the development of the steel industry to a new height.

According to the development orientation, HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute will face the major direction of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, implement the national development strategy of new materials, focus on the research and development and application of utility model materials, and promote the innovation and reform of major cutting-edge processes and key generic technologies, with the market demand of key industries and new industries and new business forms as the traction. To build the original technology source and application innovation highland of iron base and vanadium titanium materials, and to build an industry-leading and world-class applied technology research institute.

HBIS Material Technology Reseach Institute sets a board of directors and an academic committee. The board of directors is responsible for the research and development direction, development planning, resource allocation and other important issues of the institute. The Academic Committee is responsible for providing advisory opinions on major decision-making issues such as research direction and development planning, and conducting professional demonstration on major research projects and evaluation of achievements. The headquarters of the institute has 9 research centers, including frontier technology innovation center, automotive materials research and development center, energy materials research and development center. At the same time, relying on the technology center of each steel subsidiary to set up a subsidiary research institute (R & D center) and establish excess profit sharing mechanism, and actively introducing scientific research "Project Team" "Competitive Leader" mechanism to build a market-oriented assessment and distribution mechanism that takes scientific research projects as the carrier and closely links the value contribution to performance evaluation and salary level, so as to further stimulate the innovation and efficiency of scientific and technological personnel.

In recent years, HBIS adheres to the route of industrial upgrading and high-end products, vigorously carries out technological progress and technological innovation, and continues to promote the "two structures" optimization of customer structure and product structure. The proportion of high-end varieties has increased from initial stage less than 20% to current nearly 80%. More than 300 varieties filled domestic and international gaps, and more than 200 varieties replaced imports. HBIS has become the first major supplier of steel for household appliances and the second largest supplier of steel for automobile, and the leading enterprise of steel for ocean engineering, nuclear power engineering and building Bridges. Our customer covers high-end home appliance brands such as Haier and Gree and famous automakers such as Mercedes, BMW, Honda and SAIC.
