At this moment, with great joy, we would like invite you to look back on the road of our growth, we wish to show our gratitude, and pool our efforts, so as to draw experience and inspiration from history and grasp the future.
"Today, we can clearly see the growth path of Huayou. However, if we go back to the past, we would see the ups and downs along the way and the choices at the crossroads." Chairman Chen Xuehua said that over the past 20 years, Huayou has always kept the original aspiration of "being the best or nothing", always kept the faith of "rooted in China, making friends all over the world", and always followed the spirit of "constantly striving to become stronger and pursuing excellence". Starting from Tongxiang, insisting on transformation and development, open development, innovative development, green development and common development, Huayou has developed its business into Quzhou City and Guangxi Province, and then Africa and Indonesia market through great efforts, creating a growth path with Huayou characteristics, and being able to create customer value, promote industrial growth and contribute to the development of human society!

Chairman Chen said that Huayou's growth can not be separated from the concern and support of all sectors of society. Over the past 20 years, Huayou has been in company on the way forward. Along the way, we have experienced too many hardships, and also been moved for countless times. By helping each other wholeheartedly, we, our partners, our suppliers and our friends from financial institutions have built friendship, warming us up each day and making us forge ahead ceaselessly.
Over the past 20 years, we have always been touched and grateful.

We have summed up 5 most valuable experiences of taking strategy as guidance, talents as the key, mechanism as guarantee, culture as soul and common prosperity as responsibility. All these have become our ideological strength, our invaluable assets, and our historical heritage that keeps us forging ahead, and helped us achieve the everlasting development and create more glories.
