CRRC QISHUYAN CO., LTD. (abbreviated as “Company” hereafter) is located in Changzhou Economic Development Zone in Jiangsu province and in the middle of Shanghai-Nanjing Railway, affiliated with CRRC Corporation Limited. The company is recognized as the developing, manufacturing and maintaining base for diesel locomotives for passenger and freight transport in Chinese railway.
Established in 1898, the company was called Shanghai Wusong Locomotive Factory. In 1936, Wusong Locomotive Factory was moved to Qishuyan district of Changzhou city and was renamed Qishuyan Locomotive Factory. It was the first large modern factory in Changzhou. The company covers a floor area of 980 thousand square meters around, has more than 4600 sets of various equipment, and strong machining and manufacture capability. In recent years, pilot production of electric locomotive and metro rail welding vehicle was successively conducted in the company, manufacture base of intercity rail rolling stocks was built, the company has comprehensively entered into many areas of rail transit equipment including diesel locomotive, electric locomotive, inter-city rail rolling stocks and engineering machinery.
The company now has more than 5,000 employees, including more than 1,500 technical and managerial personnel; 1900 high-skilled talents such as technician, senior technician, senior worker; 10 experts who enjoy the State Council special allowance, 2 young and middle-aged experts who made an outstanding contributions in Jiangsu Province, 3 people won Mao Yisheng Railway Engineer Award, 2 people won Zhan Tianyou Youth Award, 8 people who have become cultivation objects at the third level of 333 High Level Talent Project in Jiangsu Province, 1 person who got remarkable contribution award in science and technology in Changzhou. The company has been granted many titles such as “Good Demonstration Base of High Skilled Talents Cultivation in Jiangsu Province” and “Pilot Base of Workers Education and Training” and has successively been granted many awards at national, provincial, municipal levels “National Outstanding Contribution Award of Cultivating Skilled Talents”, “Award for High Skilled Talents Training Cradle”, “National May 1st Labor Prize”, “National Civilized Unit” and so on.
The company has established National Enterprise Technology Center, National Post-doctoral Scientific Research Workstation, Nationally-recognized Measuring and Testing Lab, Enterprise Academician Workstation, Engineering Research Center in Jiangsu Province, and has leading design and manufacturing capacity of diesel locomotive, testing and verification capacity and the platform for developing diesel engine in the country as well as mature experience and R&D strength of developing diesel locomotive and engine. In recent years, to meet the needs of railway market, we have developed and manufactured a wide range of railway products with independent Intellectual Property Rights including DF11 locomotive, NZJ1 locomotive, DF11G Quasi-high speed passenger locomotive, “New Dawn” Quasi-high speed DMU and “ Harmony Great Wall” DMU, DF8B heavy-load freight locomotive, “Xueyushenzhou” plateau locomotive, DF8CJ AC transmission freight diesel locomotive, DF11Z special locomotive, DF8B diesel locomotive equipped with radial bogie, and GKD2, GK2C and HXN5B shunting locomotives, etc. These railway products play an important role in providing services for China railway, local railway and industrial and mining enterprises. Among these locomotives, DF11 locomotive is developed and manufactured for railway speed-up for the first time, which marks the beginning of China railway speed-up; HXN5 high power AC transmission diesel locomotive manufactured cooperatively with GE Company has become a major locomotive running on the mainline of Chinese railway; self-developed HXN5B shunting locomotive with obvious advantages in all technical indexes has gained recognition from customers .
The company steps up “go global” strategy and makes every effort to explore the international market. So far, many locomotives and components have been exported and sold to Cambodia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Argentina, Nigeria, Guinea, Australia, Zimbabwe, Thailand and so on. As for the locomotives serviced on broad, narrow and standard gauge railway, the company has received favorable responses from overseas customers.
Relying on its own advantages and sticking to the thoughts of taking differentiated development strategy, the company strives to develop new industries. Mid-to-high-end large railway maintenance machinery products which have been developed and launched such as rail welding vehicle, rail flaw detecting vehicle, bridge testing vehicle, rail testing vehicle have entered into the subway market in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, and have gotten the favorable feedback from the market. It marked a new breakthrough we have made in industrial transformation of the company.
Standing on a new starting point of development for the 13th Five Year Plan, the company sets up its new development vision: Three important strategic opportunities of “One Belt and One Road Initiative”, “Economic Integration of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei” and “Yangtze River Economic Belt” should be taken to consolidate and improve R&D advantages of diesel locomotive and industrial engine and carry out green manufacture, intelligent manufacture of core products and the manufacture of products with the best quality; explore global market to implement international business strategy; move into the areas of newly-manufactured electric locomotive and intercity rail transit equipment to make the best use of superior resources; centering on developing a superior and strong enterprise, allocate the resources scientifically, realize Asset-Light Strategy, and strive for making the company an double-effect (efficiency and benefits), lean and leading enterprise in China diesel locomotive industry.
