China Steel

China Steel Corporation (CSC), established in December 1971, started its production in December 1977. After four consecutive stages of expansion, the annual production capacity of crude steel has achieved 10.1 million metric tons, ranking 19th among the member companies of the International Iron and Steel Institute in 2003.

The major products include steel plates, steel bars, wire rods, hot-rolled coils, coldrolled coils, coated coils, electrical steel coils and electro-galvanized coils. All of these products are widely used in various downstream manufacturing industries, enhancing competitiveness and forming a mutually-beneficial interdependence between the CSC and its customers.

Thus, CSC has proved to be a reliable and innovative supplier of steel products. The accreditation certificate of ISO 9001, ISO/TS 16949, the Chinese National Laboratory Accreditation (CNLA) and JIS MARK approvals were obtained to demonstrate CSC’s commitment to maintaining progress in providing a quality management system.

Providing cost-effective and superior quality of products and services to the satisfaction of diverse customers is the original mission of CSC.

The company has, therefore, put a great deal of effort into expanding and modernising its facilities and continually improving the quality of its products, besides developing new products so as to help customers to create more value-added products.
