Production capacity and products
Our operating philosophy
Customer orders determine production volume. This is the principle that drives CITIC Pacific Special Steel’s operations.
The three key areas that help raise productivity and maximise profit are market development, production and raw material procurement management.
As one example of our marketing efforts, towards the end of each year we organise a sales and marketing conference for our existing and potential customers. This important forum is an opportunity to communicate with customers and understand their needs so that we can serve them better. Order agreements of approximately 70% of the following year’s production volume are secured as a result of the forum, and this enables our plants to arrange production accordingly. Therefore, we are able to keep production and sales volumes in balance with minimal inventory.
