Since its foundation, FCMCC has taken on the task of building China’s major steel industry. In the 50’s, FCMCC completed phase 1 of the construction of Wuhan I&S Works, which included the entire process from mining and coking to smelting and steel rolling, as well as their entire utility facilities. In the 60’s, while still involved in the construction of Wuhan I&S Works, FCMCC finished the construction of the Maanshan Wheel Strake Plant, which is acclaimed by the people as “a flower south of the Yangtze River’. In the 70’s, FCMCC undertook the “double four hundred” expansion construction project of Wuhan I&S Works, successively completing construction of the No.4 blast furnace, the cold rolling plant and the 2nd Steel Plant of Wuhan I&S Works. At the same time, it participated in the campaign of the construction of the 1,700mm Rolling Mill Project of Wuhan I&S Works. In recent years, FCMCC completed the construction of Wuhan I&S Works’ new No.3 blast furnace, an integration of the world’s advanced technologies and instruments; the high-speed wire production line; the 3rd Steel Plant; as well as the expansion project of the Silicon Steel Plant of Wuhan I&S Works. It has also completed the Seamless Pipe Works in Tianjin, 170 Seamless Pipe Works in Daye, the Con-cast and Roll Project of Handan I&S Works, as well as a series of other state-level key metallurgical construction projects. Concurrently, FCMCC entered into contracts for the construction of dozens of new or expansion steel plant projects in locations such as Xiangtan, Handan, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Anyang, Xinyang, Jiuqian, Nanjing, Qingdao, Jinan, Shanghai, Fuzhou, etc, thereby making tremendous contributions to the national steel industry.
