III. Glass Building Materials
(I) Present Situation
Qinhuangdao has 7 float glass production lines, with annual capacity of 33 million weight cases. They have the ability to mass produce and process high value-added products such as flat and curved, tempered, hollow, coated, carved, painted and laminated glass. Yaohua Glass is the cradle of China's modern glass industry. Asahi Automotive Glass (China) Co. Ltd. is the pacemaker of the world in the field of automotive safety glass today.
(2) Development Direction
We shall actively introduce strategic investors to promote strategic restructure and transformation and upgrading of glass building materials industry, improve glass deep-processing and revitalize Yaohua’s reputation.
We shall optimize product structure, enhance profiting ability and focus on developing glass deep-processing products for fields such as electronic information, new energy and environmental protection. With the existing production line, we will build a production and processing base of energy-efficient glass, new energy glass and high strength heat-proof glass.
We shall strongly support the innovative development of Qinhuangdao Glass Industry Research and Design Institute, and rely on its talents and technology advantages to consolidate and enhance the dominance of its R&D and design in the national glass industry.
We shall strengthen the cooperation with the leading enterprises such as China Construction Materials Group, actively expand the new fields of high efficiency and energy saving wall materials, thermal insulation fireproof materials and so on, and promote the rapid development of new building materials industry.
With the developing of equipment manufacturing, steel and glass building materials, and relying on key enterprises, we shall develop high-performance fiber, high-performance membrane materials, special glass, semiconductor illuminant materials and other new functional materials.
