The domestic mold industry is constantly improving its manufacturing level

China’s mold market is in a period of rapid growth, especially plastic rubber molds, but it has made great progress. From the data of China’s mold import and export in recent years, it can be seen that the amount of imported plastic molds is much higher than the export value. The import and export ratio of plastic mold products should improve the import and export of plastic molds in China, and the development of domestic plastic molds must be accelerated. To this end, we must break through the two major bottlenecks that restrict the development of the mold industry as soon as possible. First, the standardization rate of the mold is insufficient, which inevitably leads to prolonged delivery time and difficulties in replacing parts by users. The low standardization of molds also directly restricts the specialized division of labor and commercial circulation of molds, and also limits the export of molds. In 2011, the degree of standardization and commercialization of molds in China was around 55%, and the degree of commercialization in developed countries was 70%- Compared with 80%, there is still a big gap.

Some experts believe that another major reason for restricting the development of China’s molds is the low ability to manufacture high-precision molds in China. With the continuous development of the plastics industry, the development of precision, large, complex and long-life plastic molds will be higher than the total development speed. At the same time, due to the large number of precision, large-scale, complex and long-life molds imported in recent years, the market share of such high-end molds will gradually increase from the perspective of reducing imports and increasing localization rate. .

At the same time, China’s stamping dies, which are cheap and good, are very popular in the international market. Domestic stamping dies occupy the second important position in China’s total import and export of molds. Stamping dies account for 40.33% and 25.12% of the total import and export of molds, respectively, and have become one of the important exporting countries in the field of international stamping dies.

Hardware domestic stamping die industry is constantly catching up with the world’s advanced level, and constantly narrowing the technological gap with developed countries. Many domestic precision stamping dies have been able to compete with imported products in terms of main performance, and the overall level of the industry has improved significantly, not only to achieve import substitution, but also A considerable number of products are exported to industrialized countries and regions such as the United States and Japan. At present, China’s precision stamping dies are actively moving towards the international stage and participating in international competition.

Although there is still a certain gap with the developed countries, according to the current development of the domestic industry, the domestic stamping die industry will surely catch up in the next few years, becoming the backbone of the development of the domestic mold industry, improving the overall technical level of the industry and promoting The domestic mold industry is developing towards high-end, precision, large-scale and complex. And mold manufacturing technology can better reflect information, digital, refined, high-speed, automation. The industry’s key backbone enterprises will continue to expand and will play an increasingly important role in the industry. The public information service platform will develop faster, and its service functions and the promotion of the productivity of the majority of SMEs will also be enhanced. More visible.

In short, for the domestic mold industry, it is still necessary to continuously strive to continuously work on the technical, quality and overall quality of the employees, and adopt various ways to promote the development of the industry. Industry personnel should also actively contribute ideas and contribute their own strength to the future development of the industry. In the next decade, China’s development into a world mold center is not a dream.

There has been new news on the sale of Hutchison Whampoa’s Pokka Supermarket, which has been in a state of turmoil.

Yesterday, it was reported that Carlyle, a well-known private equity fund, intends to cooperate with Thailand Zhengda Group to acquire PARKnSHOP and has appointed Citigroup and UBS as consultants. Previously, Xie Guomin, chairman of Chia Tai Group, said that if the price is right, he will consider the acquisition of Pokka. Carlyle joined the Chia Tai Group two weeks ago to bid for Pokka. However, the parties did not respond to this.

Previously, there were investment bank valuations, and the market value of PARKnSHOP was between US$3 billion and US$4 billion. After a series of biddings, including Japan Aeon, Australia Woolworths, KKR and China Resources Enterprise became the most likely buyers candidates.

The reporter was informed that among the above-mentioned buyers, China Resources Enterprise just announced that it has decided to reach a final agreement with TESCO to form a joint venture company to integrate China’s retail business. TESCO will pay HK$1 billion to China Resources Enterprise upon completion of the transaction and will pay HK$1 billion to China Resources Enterprise one year after the transaction is completed. According to some sources, China Resources Enterprise intends to jointly bid for PARKnSHOP with TESCO, but neither side has responded.

On the other hand, if the investment giant KKR is successful, this will be Bloomberg’s record KKR’s largest deal in Asia. In 2009, KKR acquired South Korean Oriental Beer for $1.8 billion.

However, at this time, the Zhengda Group “killed” halfway, and Xie Guomin said during a media interview during the Forbes CEO seminar in Bali that if the price is right, the group will consider acquiring Hutchison’s PARKnSHOP to support the The group’s business has developed in China. According to the CP Lotus, there are currently more than 70 stores in mainland China. According to the reporter’s comparison data, the development of CP Lotus in China has been slow in recent years, and the number of total stores has not increased significantly.

In fact, Chia Tai Group and Carlyle are not the first contact. In 2010, Carlyle spent $175 million to buy the CP Lotus Preferred Shares and options from Chia Tai Group. Therefore, it is logical for the two to jointly bid for the top 100.

The reporter called Baijia, Zhengda and other related parties on this matter yesterday and did not receive a response.

In addition to the PARKnSHOP supermarket, Hutchison Whampoa may be operating another retail asset, Watsons, to spin off the Watsons business in Asia. According to market sources, Hutchison Whampoa plans to spin off Watson’s main board in Hong Kong in the next 12 to 18 months. The initial fund-raising amount is between $8 billion and $10 billion. However, Hutchison Whampoa and Watsons are not willing to comment.
