Chongsheng Oxygen Lance, a company specializing in metallurgical oxygen lances andnozzles in the Weifang Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone, has won recognition fromglobal steel manufacturers for its quality products.

"We received orders from more than 10 countries and regions including Australia, Brazil andBelgium in 2016," said Xu Zhengwu, deputy general manager of Chongsheng. "We expectour industrial output to stand between 80 million yuan ($11.64 million) and 100 million yuan in2017."

Oxygen lances are used to heat and melt steel when oxygen is present in the productionprocess. Their quality plays a crucial role in supporting steel output increases, qualityenhancements and worker safety, according to Li Qia, deputy head of the research anddevelopment center.

Chongsheng's domestic market occupancy rate reached 70 percent by the end of 2016. It hasestablished partnerships with more than 130 Chinese steel manufacturing businesses,including Baosteel Group in Shanghai and Shougang Group in Beijing, and it currentlyexports to countries such as Belgium, New Zealand, Spain, Turkey, Romania andKazakhstan.
