Hailiang’s project of an annual output of 150,000 tons of high-performance copper foil material
Based on the strategic goal of being a leader in copper-based new materials, Hailiang made a major decision to have the project of an annual output of 150,000 tons of high-performance copper foil materials. It is a major measure for Hailiang to fulfill its social responsibility and sustainable and healthy development under the background of global climate change and “double carbon” goals.
The project is located in Zhongchuan Park, Lanzhou New District. After all the three phases are put into operation, the production capacity of high-performance copper foil will be 150,000 tons per year, including 120,000 tons of lithium copper foil and 30,000 tons of standard copper foil. The first phase will be put into production in the fourth quarter of 2022.
This project of high-performance copper foil material is a landmark of Hailiang’s deeper cooperation with Lanzhou. Early as ten years ago, Hailiang has already established its branch in Lanzhou, involved in the city construction. In 2019, Hailiang education set in Lanzhou, achieved the construction of the school and students enrolled more than expected, and created the “Hailiang speed” in Lanzhou within a year with the support of the party committees, governments at all levels and relevant departments of Lanzhou and Gansu. Now, with the project of high-performance copper foil material fallen to the ground, Hailiang education and intellectual manufacturing of non-ferrous materials as two key industry being in full bloom in Lanzhou, Lanzhou and Gansu displayed their role as an important hub for the northwest of our country opening outside, and the party committees and governments at all levels also showed the trust in Hailiang.
Based on, born for and developed upon copper, Hailiang has become one of the largest and most competitive enterprises in the production and sales of copper tubes and copper bars in the world after nearly 32 years of development. Hailiang has 20 production bases in Asia, America and Europe with its marketing network radiates to the world. Nowadays, more than 300 leading guests, customers, suppliers and employee representatives gathered in Lanzhou New Area to witness the birth of the 21st production base.
