Established in 2001, with a registered capital of 24 million yuan, covering an area of 150,000 square meters, and with more than 800 employees, Jinan Aohai Carbon Products Co., Ltd. is mainly engaged in the production, R&D and operation of carbon products, in which the leading product is pre-baked anode for aluminum electrolysis.
The company has advanced and complete production equipment, and strong technical force. Since its establishment, the company has continuously increased investment in science and technology. In 2003, the company established a technical cooperation relationship with Hunan University, and the world's leading carbon technology authority, Swiss R&D provides technical support for Aohai. In February 2005, the company invested 26 million yuan to set up the technology center, in which all the inspection and testing equipment as well as process test equipment were imported from Swiss R&D and German Bruker. In 2012, the technology center was upgraded to "Shandong Enterprise Technology Center". In 2015, it was rated as "National Enterprise Technology Center" by the National Development and Reform Commission.
Up to now, the company has obtained a total of 65 national patents, including 7 patents for invention; It has obtained 4 national standards and 4 industrial standards. The "energy-saving open-loop baking furnace" independently developed by the company won the third prize of "Science and Technology Progress Award in Shandong Province"; The independently developed projects of "development and industrial applications of green and energy-saving carbon anode production technology" and "production technology and industrialization of carbon anode with large and complex structure" were awarded the first prize and the third prize of "China Non-ferrous Metal Industrial Science and Technology Award" respectively. The independently developed "research and development of high current density pre-baked anode" was awarded the third prize of "Science and Technology Progress Award in Jinan".
The company attaches great importance to the introduction and training of talents. In 2010, 5 employees were assigned to go to Hunan University to study for a Master Degree in Engineering, and all have graduated successfully. In 2012, the company and Hunan University jointly organized the employees to take part in the study of carbon materials by correspondence. A total of 41 employees obtained the academic certificates, including 21 undergraduates. In 2015, the company signed a school-enterprise cooperative training agreement with China University of Petroleum, and more than 150 employees were organized to participate in advanced study from junior college to university. At present, the study plan has been successfully completed. The above study expenses were fully borne by the company. In 2019, in order to further optimize the educational level and structure of employees and improve their comprehensive quality, the company decided to reorganize employees to participate in the academic reeducation learning of Hunan University. So far, 57 employees have signed up to take the unified entrance examination for adult colleges and universities in the near future, and the company will still bear all the study costs.
As for business operation, the company consistently adheres to the market development principle of "customer-oriented" and is committed to providing customers with high-quality products and after-sales service. The main index of the leading product pre-baked anode for aluminum electrolysis exceeds the provisions for YS/T285-2012 standard Level-1 products, which completely meets the quality requirements of customers and wins a good reputation. The products are sold to many large domestic aluminum plants, and occupy a high market share in the countries and regions in North America, Northern Europe and the Middle East.
While developing economy, the company attaches great importance to environmental protection, has established and improved the structure of environmental protection organizations, strictly implemented the responsibility system for environmental protection, invested more than 100 million yuan in building environmental protection facilities, added advanced environmental treatment equipment, such as pulse dust collection equipment, electric tar precipitator, multi-function driving, closed asphalt tank, calciner desulfurization facilities, sewage treatment facilities, etc., and realized the coordinated development of economic benefit and environmental benefit.
Through exploration and development for more than ten years, the company has made a series of achievements, and has been widely recognized by people from all walks of life. It passed ISO 9001:2015 quality management, ISO 14001: 2015 environmental management, OHSAS 18001:2007 occupational health and safety management and ISO 50001: 2011 energy management system integration certification, it has been successively rated as "High-tech enterprise", "China pre-baked anode export production base", "Shandong top 100 private enterprises", "Advanced clean production unit in Shandong Province", "Gazelle enterprise in Jinan", "Top 10 private enterprises for kinetic energy conversion in Jinan", "Innovative enterprises in Jinan", "Demonstration enterprises for economical and intensive land use in Jinan", "Top ten foreign trade export enterprises in the whole city", "Top ten enterprises of respect for the aged in Quancheng"; The pre-baked anode for aluminum electrolysis of "VAST SEA" brand of the company was rated as "the famous brand product in Shandong".
In the future, the company plans to take 5-7 years to realize the clean production of carbon and the upgrade of products, improve the added value of products, put emphasis on the research and development of high-tech carbon material products, and finally build it into a new carbon material production base with an annual output value of more than 5 billion yuan.
