New energy and new materials
The county has developed new energy and material industries, such as new-energy electric vehicles, new power supplies, and new painting materials and an electric bus project under construction. Its high-performance battery circular-economy industrial park has the AllGrand Group, a Hebei battery manufacturer, which will have a production capacity of 2-million KVAh upon completion. The company will boost the new energy and new materials sectors and become a world-famous and key national storage battery production and R&D center.
This is a large traditional competitive industry with a good foundation, and rapid growth. Related products have been exported to the United States and UK. The Hebei province’s friction material industry base is home to the provincial friction material research institute and testing center. It holds the Hebei Jupiter FRP Product Co, a Sino-Danish venture that provides fiberglass products for the Railway Ministry and was put on the government procurement list, in 1999. It produces fiberglass products for railway vehicles and composite components and products for famous enterprises in China and abroad, such as the Changchun Railway Vehicle Co, Tangshan Railway Vehicle Co, and Siemens and Alstom’s transportation equipment subsidiaries.
Clothing and accessories
The sector covers fur clothing and textile production. The county's fur industry dates back to more than 1,000 years ago and has about 1,000 fur and leather companies, which generated revenues of more than 100-million yuan ($16.1 million) in the first half of 2013. It has 288 fur leather enterprises, and is the largest processing and export zone in Hebei province. By using its advantages in fur and leather, the county began construction work on the Yingdong New Area in 2006, to integrate raw fur, production, processing, warehousing, logistics, inspection and quarantine with a specialized market. The county is expected to develop a famous fur town and China’s largest fur and leather production, processing, and trading center.
