Fenghua's pneumatic industry allies for upgrading

We found a couple of days ago on the desk in the office of Zhang Jialun, secretary-general of the Fenghua Pneumatic Industry Association a work plan, which had the Sono’s proportional electrovalve project, JELPC’s automatic testboard project, both of cutting-edge technologies. “This is the schedule after the technical innovation alliance was founded. It will be for the hard-nut problems for the pneumatic enterprises and higher institutions to work out”, said Zhang.
As a national demo base of pneumatic industry clustering and the export base of pneumatic components, Fenghua has stepped on a road to agglomeration. The pneumatic association has 150 member companies, with the exports taking up half of the total of the trade in China. But due to the lack of input for innovation, technical foundation and slow restructuring, the overall competitiveness has been hampered. To make things worse, it has to face crushing from competitors in the world market.
To realize an agglomerative development of the industry, the Association has collaborated with a dozen higher institutions of China, like the national pneumatic product quality control and testing center, the Qinghua University, and Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics and formed an innovative pneumatic industrial alliance. Through integrating resources of the industrial chain, the enterprises and the universities join hands in development of key technologies, general and core technologies, trying to make breakthroughs in upper stream, mid-stream and downstream industries and application terminals and forge an upper-stream to downstream industrial chain possessing leading core technologies.     
To achieve the upgrading, the Alliance has made a road map for development for the enterprises. It plans in coming five to ten years, it will be able to cultivate one or two international famous companies, five to six influential companies, and meanwhile develop a number of knock-out products. It aims to make Fenghua an important distribution place of pneumatic products in China and Asia at large.
It is learned that despite the severe overall economic situations, from January to November this year the large pneumatic enterprises in Fenghua have generated output of 1.5 billion yuan, up 23% over the same period last year
