Initial Results in the Construction of Longquan Automotive Air Conditioning Industry Innovation Service Complex



In January 2018, the Provincial Department of Science and Technology announced the first batch of Zhejiang industrial innovation service complex creation and cultivation list. The construction of an industrial innovation service complex is an important task clearly stated in the report of the 14th Party Congress of Zhejiang Province. It is of great significance to the deepening of the supply-side structural reform, optimizing industrial upgrading, and comprehensively revitalizing the real economy. The Longquan Automobile Air Conditioning Industry Innovation Service Complex is also in the first batch of cultivation list. In the past year, how is the construction of the complex and what results have been achieved?

The Longquan Automobile Air-conditioning Parts Industrial Cluster is the largest automobile air-conditioning parts manufacturing base in the country, and it is also an automobile air-conditioning parts manufacturing base awarded by the China Automobile Association. After more than 40 years of development, Longquan's automotive air-conditioning parts industry has become a local superior industry and pillar industry. At present, there are more than 200 manufacturing companies in the industry, and the products cover more than 200 products under the automotive air-conditioning assembly. In 2009, Longquan successfully established the "National Torch Longquan Automotive Air Conditioning Characteristic Industrial Base" and the only "China Automobile (Air Conditioning) Parts Manufacturing Base" in the country.

With the vigorous development of the auto parts industry, the variety of products has increased, and the sales channels have expanded. Many auto parts companies have gone abroad and their products are exported to Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Africa and other places, but problems also follow. Test reports are a ‘weapon’ for companies to broaden the market. Due to the lack of relevant qualification test reports, many companies have lost orders. In order to obtain test reports, companies have to go to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chongqing and other places to do special tests, which consumes a lot of manpower, material and financial resources. Sometimes, a test will cost tens of thousands of yuan, which greatly increases the production cost of the company.

Zhejiang Chuangxin Automobile Air Conditioning Co., Ltd. is a professional auto parts enterprise engaged in scientific research, production and export sales. Its products cover parallel flow condensers, tube-belt condensers and stacked evaporators, water tanks, drying bottles, expansion valves, etc. There are more than 1,000 specifications for customers to choose from, with annual sales of more than 100 million yuan, of which 70 to 80% of the products are exported. In order to facilitate testing, the company invested more than 2 million years ago to establish its own testing center, but it still cannot meet the needs of the company.

Lin Youbin-Zhejiang Chuangxin Auto Air Conditioning Co., Ltd. Manager:

We also set up our own testing laboratory because we have invested a lot of money. Now the government has invested in the establishment of a testing platform, which has greatly helped our company. We used to get the outside Chongqing Testing Center and Hefei FAW for testing. Now Longquan has built a testing platform, which is very affordable and convenient for us.

How to solve the inspection problems faced by auto parts companies and improve their quality and efficiency? Longquan takes the initiative to attract talents and brains from colleges and universities, and strives to build a technological innovation platform. In 2013, it established the "Longquan Automotive Air Conditioning Industry Technology Innovation Service Platform", which covers various aspects such as testing and R&D, personnel training, standard formulation, product display, and information consulting Service enterprise.

On December 13, 2017, Che Jun, Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee, during his investigation in Longquan, expressed his appreciation for the platform’s achievements in attracting talents and solving problems. He also pointed out that under the new normal, government departments must be more proactive and focus on local The industry has built a public innovation platform to provide technical services to a large number of small and medium-sized enterprises, helping them to accelerate the conversion of new and old kinetic energy.

On January 3, 2018, the Provincial Department of Science and Technology announced the first batch of industrial innovation complex creation lists. Longquan Automobile Air-conditioning Industry Innovation Service Complex was listed among them, becoming the only county and city in Lishui City included in the list. Subsequently, Longquan City formulated and issued the "Zhejiang Longquan Automobile Air Conditioning Industry Innovation Service Complex Construction Implementation Plan", and established a leading group with the secretary of the municipal party committee as the team leader and the mayor as the first deputy team leader, with offices and 12 advancements The team clarified the construction tasks of the "eight centers"; and held a creation and mobilization deployment meeting. The city formed a joint force and promoted with the government-led, policy-guided, and market-oriented operation mode. After the main construction of the complex is completed, the interior decoration and equipment procurement are currently in full swing.
