2010-05-09

Through the years Atlas Copco and China Cement Association (CCA)have maintained close cooperation relations.

Through this opportunity, the two sides communicate fully with each other and will work together to better support the development and the work of energy saving and emission reduction of the China cement industry.

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of China-Sweden diplomatic relations, officials of Atlas Copco and China Cement Association (CCA) hold a very friendly high level talk on May 9, 2010 in the Swedish Pavilion at Shanghai World Expo.

Through the years Atlas Copco and CCA have maintained close cooperation relations. Atlas Copco held the talk with CCA to better understand the development of the China cement industry and make sure that Atlas Copco’s strategic plans will be made consistent with industrial policies and the access system of the cement industry in China. Through this opportunity, the two sides communicate fully with each other and will work together to better support the development and the work of energy saving and emission reduction of the China cement industry.
 
As an important organization of the China cement industry, China CCA builds a platform of communication between Atlas Copco and China cement manufacturers. “From west to east, from south to north, wherever there are big cement plants and big mines, there are Atlas Copco products. This means that Atlas Copco products have got recognition throughout the community of cement industry in China. It also means that Atlas Copco has indissoluble bond with the cement industry of China,” says President Lei Qianzhi.
 
In China, cement is one of the most principal products in economic development. After 60 years of development, the cement output of China in 2009 reached 1.65 billion tons, about half of the global capacity of cement production. Currently China is still in the process of industrialization and infrastructure construction is one of the major factors that drive GDP growth. So in the next five years, the cement demand will maintain a trend of moderate growth. Meanwhile, the cement industry is a resource consuming industry. The global development of low-carbon economy will be a challenge to the industry. “So we hope that equipment manufacturers will make more energy-saving equipment to promote the technological advance of the cement industry. We hope Atlas Copco will transform our expectations into better products and equipment to serve the China cement industry,” says President Lei Qianzhi.
 
On this point, Mr. Bjorn Rosengren expresses his high agreement. “Atlas Copco’s strategy is to get close to the China market and the Chinese customers. At the beginning, we import foreign products into China. Then we assemble products in China. Now we carry out product R&D in China and export the products developed and manufactured in China to foreign markets. In this process, it is important for us to know the development trend of the China cement industry in the next five years in order to do a right job in our product research and development.”
 
In all its product R&D projects in China as well as in the global market, Atlas Copco is making efforts to reduce energy consumption as energy saving is a goal of the company’s research and development. In China, Atlas Copco has a young and promising team of development and fast progress has been made in their R&D projects. This will make a good foundation for the future development of the company. 
 
"I appreciate it very much that Atlas Copco can get the support from China Cement Association and customers of the China cement industry to Atlas Copco. You help us understand customer demands and this is very important for us to develop products in future that can meet the demands of our customers even better,” says Mr. Bjorn Rosengren excitedly. “We thank CCA much for its strong support to us through the years. We hope this cooperation will continue for long!”
