Shanghai Hugong: take off in the reform Shanghai Hugong valve factory, a collective enterprise founded in the 1980s, is like a wave of joy, surging forward in the wave of China's economic reform and opening up for 40 years. Shanghai Hugong valve factory, a collective enterprise founded in the 1980s, is like a wave of joy, surging forward in the wave of China's economic reform and opening up for 40 years. From a small factory with dozens of people, Shanghai Hugong valve factory (Group) Co., Ltd. has grown into a leader in the domestic valve industry. With a registered capital of 110million yuan, the enterprise scale has leapt to the forefront of the same industry in China. It not only has a famous "Hg" brand, but also has won many awards, such as high-tech enterprises, Shanghai civilized units, Shanghai famous brands, Shanghai famous trademarks, etc. The general-purpose valves produced by the company, such as gate valve, globe valve, ball valve, butterfly valve and hydraulic control valve, have high popularity and influence in petroleum, chemical industry, metallurgy, electric power, construction, heating, water supply and other industries, and have established a good reputation. The products are in short supply and sell well at home and abroad

reform and opening up have provided a fertile ground for the growth of Shanghai Hugong valve. Hugong valve has seized this rare historical opportunity, continued to innovate and forge ahead, adhered to the spirit of craftsman, insisted on brand awareness, and strictly controlled product quality. While creating value for customers, it has also won opportunities for its own development. Yang Meng, chairman of the group, introduced the growth of Shanghai Hugong valve factory (Group) Co., Ltd. in an interview a few days ago

restructuring and chapter building regain vitality

Shanghai is the birthplace of China's valve industry. In the 1980s, Shanghai Hugong valve factory was founded in Zhabei District of Shanghai, specializing in the production of gate valves, globe valves, ball valves, butterfly valves, hydraulic control valves, etc. With the excellent quality that Shanghai people have always been strict and serious, the valves produced by Shanghai Hugong valve factory have also been branded as "made in Shanghai" and won a good reputation in the market. However, after entering the new century, the traditional management system and mechanism have been unable to adapt to the open market environment. At the same time, the valve industry in Jiangsu and Zhejiang has gradually developed and expanded, which has had a great impact on the business of Shanghai Hugong valve factory, with operating losses, scattered people and the risk of bankruptcy

in 2004, Shanghai Hugong valve factory was restructured, and Yang Meng was ordered to take over the banner of "Hugong valve" at the time of crisis

"since joining Shanghai Hugong in 1992, I have spent the best part of my youth in Hugong. Emotionally, I do not want to see the enterprise for which I have devoted more than ten years of youth fall down and my colleagues who work with me lose their jobs; morally, I have stood up at the most difficult time of the enterprise and let the brand of Hugong valves rebuild brilliance." Yang Meng recalled to me

with such a feeling, Yang Meng became the leader of Shanghai Industrial & Commercial Valve Co., Ltd. and took on the important task of revitalizing Shanghai Industrial & Commercial Valve Co., Ltd

but there is a huge gap between ideal and reality. When Yang menggang took over the company, the enterprise was on the verge of bankruptcy, with a hundred wastes waiting to flourish, backward management and low-grade products. Yang Meng called it the "three lack" stage, lacking funds, technology and market. At the most difficult time, Yang Meng even had the idea of retreating, but the strong feeling made him stay

the first thing he did after he took over the role of Hugong valve was to rally people and rebuild morale. First, the Party branch has been established in the enterprise to give full play to the vanguard and exemplary role of Party members. The Party branch has become the core cohesion of the enterprise and changed the original situation of scattered sand; Second, the establishment of trade unions has ensured the legitimate rights and interests of the company's employees, created an atmosphere of common growth between employees and the enterprise, and made employees feel that they have a direction; The third is to establish rules and regulations. Through the workers' Congress and other forms, Shanghai Hugong has formulated more than 20 enterprise management systems, established perfect rules and regulations, and put the company on the right track of standardized management. Shanghai Hugong has also won the honorary title of "Shanghai worker pioneer"

"The key element of enterprise development is talents. We have been striving to cultivate an enterprise culture of humanistic care. We have put forward the concept of common development between employees and the enterprise, so that every employee can give full play to their abilities and expertise, create a superior environment for the growth and development of employees through training, competition and other mechanisms, and make a large number of young employees quickly become the backbone of the enterprise. They not only have the potential to be promoted in their work At the same time, the company also provides more convenience in life, so that employees have a sense of belonging. " Yang Meng said

the company's original "four ones" activities have played an important role in gathering team strength. The specific contents of the "four ones" activities: first, organize an annual selection of advanced production workers and civilized employees, publicize and reward excellent employees, motivate people around them with things around them, and form a strong atmosphere of learning from, catching up with and striving for advancement; The second is to hold a sports meeting every year and organize interesting competitions in various forms; Third, provide physical examination for employees once a year to care about their physical and mental health; Fourth, arrange a suburban tour every year, so that employees can gain insight and relieve pressure after busy work

"at present, 30% of the employees of Hugong are old employees who have worked for more than 10 years, and 90% of the employees who have worked for more than 5 years. All the employees in important positions are old employees who have worked for more than 10 years. The stability of personnel is the basis for the steady development of the company. This is rare in the valve industry where personnel flow is very frequent." Yang Meng said. Therefore, Hugong has won the title of "model enterprise of harmonious labor relations in Shanghai" for many consecutive years

the stability of the staff has laid the foundation for the sustainable and stable development of Shanghai Industrial and commercial engineering group. Over the past decade, Yang Meng led the team to cut through difficulties and hardships, go through trials and tribulations, expand the territory, and build the former bankrupt factory into one of the main suppliers of domestic gate valves, globe valves, ball valves and butterfly valves. At present, the annual production capacity has reached 20000 tons, and can process and manufacture forged valves, cast valves The three major product series of special valves have more than 1000 specifications. In 2012, it ranked first in the comprehensive index of industrial economic benefits of member units of valve branch of China General Machinery Industry Association, and became one of the leading enterprises in the Legion of valve industry. Many end customers must use "Hg" valves in project bidding. The brand popularity and influence of the company continued to improve, bringing significant economic and social benefits to the company

scientific and technological innovation establishes core competitiveness

before becoming the chairman of Hugong valve, Yang Meng worked hard in the front line of market and sales for 10 years. This experience made him see clearly the constraints on the development of the whole industry: prominent structural contradictions, low product technology content, serious disordered competition, relative excess capacity, high energy consumption and low profit

he deeply realized that an enterprise cannot survive and grow in a highly competitive market without its own core technology. Technological innovation is the source power for an enterprise to enhance its competitiveness. An enterprise that lacks core technology and innovation ability cannot survive and develop for a long time

after taking office, he took scientific and technological innovation as the driving force to drive the development of the company. He made up his mind that "enterprises would rather not make money now than master core technology." For this reason, the company has formulated various systems to encourage innovation, such as the organizational structure and authority of the R & D center, the R & D project management system, the R & D investment accounting management measures, the intellectual property management measures, and the performance appraisal and reward system for technical R & D personnel, which have greatly stimulated the innovation enthusiasm of scientific and technological personnel. They have also established and improved the enterprise's technological innovation system and set up an innovation team named after yangxiongjun, a leading technology talent - yangxiongjun Innovation Studio

in addition to independent research and development, the company also signed an industry university research cooperation agreement with East China University of science and technology, established a stable and long-term cooperative relationship, and developed through "intelligence". In terms of technology introduction, the company also cooperates with international organizations to invite Pierre, President of European Valve Association, to the company for technical exchange and introduce international advanced concepts and technologies

under the leadership of Yang Meng, the R & D team of Hugong closely tracks market changes and customer demand dynamics, and tries to develop new technologies and products with high scientific and technological content and independent intellectual property rights

through years of hard work, the company has successfully developed more than 50 new technologies, such as the rail ball valve with filter in the valve core and the electric control device of the electric through regulating valve, and has obtained 3 invention patents and 32 utility model patents, greatly enhancing the market competitiveness of the products. As the saying goes, whoever has the standard wins the world. The company is also a member of the National Standardization Committee and actively participates in the formulation of a number of national standards

"If you want to be good at something, you must first use your tools. In order to maintain a leading position in the industry, Shanghai Hugong has been continuously introducing more than 300 sets of equipment, such as the world's leading CNC machining center, plasma welding, full-automatic gas shielded welding, CNC lathes for turning balls, and high-efficiency machining machines. We have also established an advanced material mechanical property laboratory, with Germany's spike floor mounted direct reading spectrometer and the United States' niton company The portable alloy sent ashore in the first piece will become an important milestone analyzer, screen display universal material testing machine, pendulum impact testing machine, ultrasonic wave type hardness tester, ultrasonic thickness gauge and other advanced monitoring instruments. After the valve is assembled, it will be comprehensively measured to make the valve performance meet the operating conditions of users. " Yang Meng said

currently. The proportion of R & D investment of Shanghai Hugong is more than 4% of sales every year, and this figure will increase to 5% in 2018. Such investment has also brought good returns to Shanghai Hugong. In recent years, the sales revenue of Shanghai Hugong has been growing steadily, with an average annual growth rate of 20%

♂ Hold the lifeline of quality and win the trust of customers

when you enter the hall on the first floor of Hugong valve office building in Jiading District, Shanghai, you will first see a variety of nameplates, "Shanghai famous trademark", "Shanghai famous brand" and "Shanghai contract abiding and trustworthy unit" one by one, which highlight the honor of the enterprise. These dazzling honors reflect the great country craftsman spirit of hard work, excellence and meticulousness of Shanghai workers

after the new production base is completed and put into operation, Shanghai Hugong has ushered in a new round of rapid growth. But Yang Meng was not complacent because of his achievements. Instead, he emphasized the importance of product quality. In his mind, the product quality of the valve is the lifeline of the enterprise. He will even look at the product quality of his own valve with more critical eyes than the customers

since 2006, the company has specially hired famous consulting companies such as Jianfeng and Yiyuan to provide guidance in the factory, and carried out a series of training on the theme of quality for employees, which has greatly improved their quality awareness and continuously optimized their quality work. The company has successively passed ISO9001, environmental certification and api 6D, EU CE and other system certification. In order to ensure the product quality, Shanghai Hugong has established the quality objective assessment system, which conducts strict objective assessment on the product quality every month. Taking the specification as the benchmark, the system as the yardstick, rewards the good and punishes the bad according to the inspection and assessment results, and motivates
