Other company information: Maanshan Iron & Steel Company Limited was set up on 1 September 1993 and was regarded by the State as one of the nine pilot joint-stock limited enterprises which formed the first batch of overseas listed companies. The firm was one of the largest iron and steel producers in the People's Republic of China, and is principally engaged in the manufacture and sale of iron and steel products. The manufacturing process primarily involves iron-making, steel-making and steel rolling. The Company’s principal product is steel products which come in four major categories: steel plates, steel sections, wire rods and train wheels.
Main products sold by the firm include steel plates, sections, automobile parts, steel structures, high-speed wire rod materials, hot-rolled reinforcing steel, pre-stressing strand steel wires, spring steel wires, railway wheels.
Further product information: Steel plates include hot and cold-rolled thin plates, galvanized plates and coil-coating plates. Hot-rolled thin plates are mostly used in the construction, automobile, bridge-building and machinery end use sectors and in petroleum transport, while cold-rolled thin plates are mostly used in light industries such as home electrical appliances manufacture, and medium and high-grade production of automotive parts. Galvanised plates are mostly used for automobile and home electrical appliance applications. Coil-coating plates can be used both for interior and exterior aspects of construction projects (including domestic appliances and steel windows). Medium plates are often used in boilers, in pressurised utensils, for shipbuilding, container manufacture, and so forth. Maanshan plates used for building ship structures have been endorsed by certificates issued by six countries including China, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States, France and Norway.
Maanshan's section steel products include H-shaped steel and common medium-shaped steel. H-shaped steel is mostly used in construction, for large steel structures, for machinery manufacturing and for the construction of petroleum drilling platforms and railways. Maanshan owns the technology patent for production of shock and fire resistant H-shaped steel for construction industry applications. The firm's H-shaped steel products have been certified under the Japanese JIS standards. H-shaped steel from Maanshan as used in manufacturing oceanographic platforms has been endorsed by certificates from both China and Germany.
Wire rod supplied by the firm include high-quality wire rod as well as reinforcing quality wire rod (i.e. rebar-in-coil). High-quality wire rod products are mostly used in the production of robust materials, such as pre-stressed concrete strand wire and spring steel wire. Hot-rolled reinforcing steel is used in armoured concrete, mainly used in construction. Hot-rolled reinforcing steel and hot-rolled wire rods produced by Maanshan Iron and Steel have been endorsed by the quality control system certification and product certification of the UK Certification Authority for Reinforcing Steels (CARES).
Maanshan Iron and Steel also supply train wheels and wheel rims, which are widely used in railway transport, port machinery, petrochemical industries, aerospace industry, and so forth. Railway wheel products are bestowed the honour of “Famous Brand of China”. The Company owns the technology patent for production of high-speed railroad train wheels. The production quality assurance system for train wheels is accredited with authoritative certifications including the ISO9000:2000 quality system and the AAR issued by the North American Railway Committee.
Steelonthenet.com would note that the world market for railway wheels (demand of roughly 6 million wheels / year) comprises both forged and cast wheels. Forged wheels account for approximately 70% of the total wheel market, and cast wheels account for the remainder. Maanshan Iron & Steel is one of the top three global suppliers to this markeplace, alongside the Vyksa Steel Works in Russia and Interpipe of Ukraine. NTMK [Evraz] is also a major player.
