Shandong Ganglei Building Material Technology Co., Ltd. is located in Xiaqiu Stone Material Industrial Park (the stone export base and stone wholesale market in the north of China and Shandong Provincial Stone Industrial Park), adjacent to Laizhou Port (the national first-grade open port) and the Provincial Road and Sanlan Road in the north, and only 100km away from Qingdao, Yantai and Weifang airports. Since its establishment in 1994, the company has invested a circulating fund of RMB 15 million and a registered capital of RMB 11.8 million. Plus the fixed assets of the workshop and equipment, the total capital reaches RMB 35 million. We annual yields flat panels of 150,000 m2 and ranks first in the Stone Material Park.
To cater to the domestic market conditions and enhance the corporate competitiveness, our decision-making group decided to enlarge the size and investment injection without hesitation, and carried out the software and hardware constructions from the following four aspects:
The top management began to realize that the following domestic market competition would be that of mine resource ultimately. In 1995, the company invested RMB 58 million in buying 3 mines with local rare categories of 365 (sesame white), 355 (crystal white jade), and 383 (pearl white) featured by high hardness, beautiful pattern, good physical performance, acid and alkali resistance, low radiation, and large storage capacity. In 1996 and 1997, it also invested RMB 72 million in purchasing 4 high-quality mines with the only large-storage rare categories of 364 and 367(cheery flower red), garnet red, and diamond white. In 2000, the company injected another investment of RMB 30 million to develop Wulian Flower Mine and Red Mine with Shandong special-class white grain mine, and purchase over 40 sets of equipment such as imported forklifts, large air compressors, fire cutting machines, and heavy carrier vehicles, and realized mechanized exploitation. The monopolization of mining rights lays a solid foundation for our large-scale development. The 11 mines annually outputs high-quality quarry stones of more than 300,000m3, of which the flawless stone blocks with good pattern, large volume, and good texture are used in the large projects, guaranteeing timely supply and agreeable pattern for the large-amount projects. Meanwhile, the quarries with bad pattern and softer texture are sold, creating considerable economic benefits. In this way, our group reaches a new top.
The group is surely to be incorporated as its increasing growth. In 1997, we began to annex Laizhou Huifeng Stone Material Company by an investment of RMB 50 million and set up Laizhou Ganglei International trade Co., Ltd., Laizhou Ganglei Special Shapes Stone Co., Ltd., and Laizhou Ganglei Installation Decoration Co., Ltd. Then, we added a new procession line from Italy by spending over RMB 20 million to the original 1 imported flow line, and imported over 30 sets of machines, including full automatic IR cutters, computer profiling machine, diamond wire saws, barrel saws, and the processing machines for special shapes, and edge polishers. In 1998, the company sold and imported panel materials of more than 10,000m2 and domestic panels and abnormal-shaped panels of 300,000m2. It developed to a comprehensive economic body integrating mine exploitation, importing stone material, famous excellent stone, stone production and processing, column abnormal shape, international trade, installation decoration and transportation and became a leading enterprise in the stone industry of the north of China.
