The production and sales volume of Inspur servers rank the 1st in China and 2nd in the world. Known as “the world's largest ring”, IRAETA's super-large integral ring-rolled steel ring has successfully become widely known, representing the highest technical level of nuclear power forgings. We now have cultivated 3,300 specialized enterprises, 85 national-level specialized little giant companies, and 892 gazelle companies.
The participants fully affirmed the strong resilience and vitality of the advanced manufacturing industry in Shandong Province, especially Jinan.
Zhou Ji, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and director of the National Manufacturing Strategy Advisory Committee, took Inspur Group as an example. He pointed out that in the process of making China a world manufacturing powerhouse, a large number of demonstration, benchmarking and lighthouse factories had emerged in China for the construction of digital and networked factories. These enterprises have become world-class and set demonstrations and examples for China's manufacturing industry regarding digital and networked transformation and upgrade, for example, Inspur Group is a demonstration factory for digital and networked manufacturing in the field of information equipment.
Ma Yaqing, chairperson of CCID Consulting Co., Ltd., said that Jinan, as an important industrial base in Shandong Province, had always been at the forefront of China in the development of advanced manufacturing. In recent years, guided by the strategy of building a strong industrial city and the digital economy, it has continued to expand institutional innovation.
