Taizhou Shuanglong Electric Co., Ltd was officially established. The registered capital was 2.08 million yuan and the floor area of the factory was around 10,000 square meters. The main products included electric wire, welding machines, plasma cutting machines, and relevant accessories.
Our company had been committed to developing new technology for electric welding machine manufacturing. As a result, we successfully launched three major series welding machines, ARC power industry series, MIG series and MMA series, which consisted of more than eighty types.
At the same time, we started to push our products to the world. We had gradually established strategic partnerships with customers from many countries including United States, Australia, South Africa, Russia, and Germany. Our welding machines obtained the CE certificate, CETLus certificate and TUV GS certificate and the matched welding tools had acquired the TUV certificate.
As we began adding more customers, we accumulated more confidence within the electric welding machine industry. Hence, we decided to increase research and development investment in January of 2006. Then, we built a welding machine laboratory and bought a large amount of R&D equipment for our welding machine development.
With the welding machine laboratory, we were able to improve and optimize our existing products and developed new products such as the ARC inverter welding machine, CUT series plasma cutting machine, thus creating a comprehensive product system. By May of 2006, we were producing six major product series, which were the inverter-based MMA welding machine, inverter-based MIG welding machine, multi-function inverter-based welding machine, inverter-based TIG welding machine, inverter-based plasma cutting machine and relevant accessories. In total, we provided over 100 different types of products.
In August of 2006, we officially introduced an ERP management system in order to optimize enterprise resource management and achieve lean production.
Later in February of 2008, we had fully implemented ISO9001:2008 system management system for better quality management and greater economic enterprise benefits. Then, in August of 2013, we obtained the NQA quality management system certificate.
With the rapid development of our company, we quickly outgrew our existing facilities. As a result, in October of 2014, we established Zhejiang Linlong welding equipment Co., Ltd exclusively for the production of our welding machines.
Then in March of 2015, Zhejiang Linlong welding equipment Co., Ltd relocated to a new production site. The new factory covered an area of 13,072.86 square meters. At this time, our annual output value reached 500 million yuan. Meanwhile, we expanded the welding machine laboratory, which covered an area of 600 square meters and was equipped with a research team with more than twenty professional researchers.
In October of 2016, we established a branch company in the United States. We had been communicating with the local Bureau of Commerce, which would soon build and enter a record of our company into their system.
