(In 1997, the workshop of Xinhai was only 4860 m2. After extension, Xinhai office building and workshop covered 66,364 m2. At the same time, the new workshop is under construction)
At that time, China strongly supported the development of private enterprises, and published a series of policies, which attracted a lot of people to startup, including me. Different from providing mineral processing equipment, Xinhai insisted on providing mineral processing EPC service at the beginning, which was a new mode that nobody tried before. Most peers were generally not optimistic about it, but we still did it. The facts showed that our mineral processing EPC service was very correct. And later e-commerce marketing, there were just many questions about us, if not more. Actually, Xinhai was in a growing number of people questioned. In the first half year of 2018, our performance increased rapidly. Looking back on the past, the support of China and government was the biggest power for us.

When I came here, the workshop was just a little. Once we worked, the equipment occupied the whole room and the noise was everywhere. Now it is different. The whole workshop is very spacious, which makes us easy to work.

(Picture 1 showed the first large flotation cell developed by Xinhai in 1990s. Now, Xinhai can manufacture more than 1000 kinds of mining, processing, smelting equipment, and provide full sets of main and auxiliary equipment for mine less than 50000 tons/day capacity. Besides, Xinhai has also improved 80% of common mineral equipment, and applied for 112 patents. Picture 2 is Xinhai's patent wall)
We could hear innovation everywhere at that time. When developing the first flotation cell, the design scheme was discussed a dozen times, and the design paper was nearly a table tall. All of us stayed in the laboratory for a whole day, not even home sometimes. I was just married at that time, and there were several arguments between me and wife about it. When we succeeded, I felt that all what I paid rewards.
--- Mr. Li, research personnel who developed the first flotation cell
Xinhai spent a lot of effort and financial resource on researching. I was so proud of being one of Xinhai people when I saw the patent wall. And I also set a goal that won a place on the patents wall within five years.

(Picture 1 showed that the signing ceremony of the first overseas project of Xinhai in 1990s --- Japan Tokyo corporation silicon sand dressing project. Picture 2 was the signing ceremony of Malaysian CNMC 500TPD gold processing project. Now, Xinhai has finished over 500 mineral processing EPC projects all over the world, and served over 2000 mines. Besides, Xinhai successively set up its overseas offices in multiple countries. The product was exported to over 90 countries all over the world)
In 1990s, China published the going-out policy, simplified the procedures that related to foreign trade, and provided various financial preferential tax treatments. Mr. Zhang Yunlong found the potential of overseas market. Japan silica sand dressing project was the first overseas project that we undertook. The negotiation process lasted for a month, because our competitor also negotiated with our customer, so we must keep our eye on the information of customer and competitor. It was the first time for Xinhai to step in overseas market, so what we can depend on was our quality and technology. This project did gave us great confident and motivation at that time.

After the One Belt and Road propose was put forward, Xinhai took a lot of effort on the countries along the Belt and Road, and received a great result. Malaysian CNMC 500TPD gold processing project was a typical cross-cultural cooperation project, and It was also the first CIP plant in Kelantan State, Malaysia. From signing to the first gold-loaded carbon produced, the whole project only took 6 months. The clients were very satisfied about our high-quality and high-efficiency, and I was also proud of being one of the Xinhai people.

President Xi said that: Every age has its own problem, each generation has its own destiny. Although we went through mountains and rivers, we still need to make an arduous journey. Xinhai will keep forward with its original intention!
