Shantui shares: low-key "national quality gold medal" winner

China Construction machinery information

the history of the development of China's equipment manufacturing industry is a chronicle of "made in China" turning into a butterfly. From learning and imitation to innovation and transcendence, the development of equipment manufacturing industry can be described as magnificent. Bulldozer is recognized as a model with high manufacturing difficulty in the construction machinery industry, and its leading position in the Chinese market has been miraculously occupied by domestic brands for a long time. Shantui Construction Machinery Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Shantui), founded in the 1980s, is the creator of this miracle. Recalling the past and cherishing the present, the difficult years at the beginning of the establishment of the plant have great reference significance for the later generations to develop the equipment manufacturing industry

builders with certain qualifications should not be unfamiliar with Hongqi 100 bulldozer. This bulldozer introduced from the former Soviet Union was almost synonymous with bulldozer before the reform and opening up. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, as the country gradually shifted the focus of its work to economic construction, the booming construction put forward new requirements for bulldozers. The first Ministry of machinery industry (hereinafter referred to as "the first Ministry of machinery") led the introduction of the bulldozer production technology of Komatsu Japan, which was the international leader at that time. Taking all factors into consideration, the first Ministry of machinery decided to build the bulldozer factory in Jining City, Shandong Province. "At that time, many people opposed choosing the plant site in Jining. There was a view that building a bulldozer factory in Jining was more like 'fighting guerrillas'. Although this meant belittling Jining, we were confident. We admitted that we were backward, but we were not willing to be backward. We could win the war like' fighting guerrillas'." Zheng Weifu, member of the preparatory group of Shandong Bulldozer General Factory and former party secretary of Shantui, was still full of pride when recalling the days when the factory was established

the introduction of bulldozer production technology has been put on the agenda since 1973, but due to the influence of political movements, the preparatory group headed by the Deputy Secretary of Jining Prefecture Committee in person did not start to operate until August 1978. Zheng Weifu, then director of Jining Machinery Bureau, was a member of the preparatory group. He recalled that when choosing the location of the plant, six vice ministers of the Ministry of machinery visited Jining, which showed that the state attached importance to this project

at first, Shantui was going to introduce Komatsu's 180 horsepower D80 bulldozer, which was widely used in China at that time, but in fact, it was an obsolete model in the international market. Although the quality of the mechanical transmission D80 was relatively reliable, but adhering to the principle of introducing advanced technology, Shantui finally decided that China was still in the process of industrialization, informatization, urbanization, marketization In the deep development stage of internationalization, D85 with hydraulic transmission was introduced. History has proved that this decision has a crucial impact on the development of Shantui

In 1980, Shandong Bulldozer General Factory was officially established in Jining, and Jining machine factory (the former Yantai machine factory), Jining general machinery factory (the first state-owned enterprise in Jining) and Jining Power Machinery Factory were merged into Shantui. In 1981, the first yamatui TY220 bulldozer produced by introducing the manufacturing technology of Komatsu d85a-18 bulldozer from Japan came off the production line. This bulldozer was purchased by capital iron and steel mining company, and now it is parked in the most prominent position of yamatui business park as a "meritorious bulldozer". During the 28 years and 9 months of mine construction of this "meritorious bulldozer", the cumulative working time exceeded 23000 hours, but surprisingly, it has only experienced three major repairs

Shantui bulldozer had good quality, which was well-known at that time. However, what really made Shantui bulldozer recognized at the national level, and how thick the waterproof layer was also a drop in the bucket, was due to the award of the national gold medal in 1990. So far, the only national quality gold medal in the construction machinery industry embodies Shantui people's adherence to quality. Hou Kui is the first Chief Quality Engineer of Shantui. He graduated from Harbin Institute of technology. He was once a subordinate of the former state leader Jiang Zemin. As the first batch of technicians of Shantui, Hou Kui has an almost stubborn pursuit of quality. In 1990, he led the team to conduct sanitary landfill and combustion of excellence creation activities: "at that time, the state organized a 1000 hour reliability test in Heilongjiang Province In the forest where the story happened, taking advantage of the opportunity of building a paper mill, the major domestic bulldozer production enterprises were organized to carry out construction together. The four person team of Shantui led by me had only one failure in 1000 consecutive hours of construction, and finally Shantui bulldozer won this quality gold medal without dispute. ". Although China's construction machinery industry has developed by leaps and bounds since then, no enterprise has been able to win the honor of quality gold medal. The reason why this gold medal is not well known to many people is related to the low-key and introverted character of Shandong people

for Chinese construction machinery enterprises in the 1980s and 1990s, it was not easy to occupy a controlling part of the land in China, while Shantui dared to take the lead in the world, raising the flag of China's machinery product export at the end of the 1980s. However, when recalling the original decision to export, Zheng Weifu said frankly that he had no bottom in his heart: "in those days, export was a major event. In case of problems, it would matter." Although the bulldozer has been widely used in China at that time, no one is sure whether it can adapt to the humid and hot environment in the Caribbean. Considering that the national economy had just undergone an adjustment at that time, many manufacturers expressed their desire to produce bulldozers. Zheng Weifu believed that this export would be a major opportunity for the development of Shantui: "it's a mule or a horse that should be pulled out to wander". Finally, Shantui successfully won the project of exporting Cuba. Although there were some problems in the construction of Shantui bulldozer in Cuba, Fidel Castro, the then Cuban leader, specifically affirmed the performance of Shantui bulldozer when meeting with the Chinese ambassador. This export made Shantui become the first enterprise in the same industry in China with an annual export volume of construction machinery products of more than 10million us dollars, and also laid the foundation for bulldozers to become the key export foreign exchange earning products of China's construction machinery industry in the future

it is difficult to start a business. There are many interesting stories about Shantui in its early days. The efforts of the older generation have laid the foundation for the brilliance of Shantui, and today's Shantui people are also writing the new history of Shantui with their achievements
