It is good to know that 8 out of 10 non-sparking tools sold on the domestic market are made by Botou Company. Every year, we export 60% of our products to a total of 40 countries and regions, including US, German, and Japan. Qinglai Yang, chairman of Botou Company, said to the reporter with a deep feeling: "If it had been for independent innovation, how would we own such expansive market."
As a matter of fact, technical innovation within Botou Compay has never ceased. A few years ago when Qinglai Yang visited the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi'an city, he was amazed at their crafting techniques as the connected copper links of the chain on the brass wagon show no signs of joint cut.
Inspired by the exquisite workmanship, Qinglai Yang later recruited 10 or so experts and technicians and got them to work on non-sparking tool manufacture techniques. With two years' dedication and an investment of over 500,000RMB, the non-sparking manual chain hoist was successfully created in 2003 and awarded the national patent. Even in modern-day industries, only China and US are capable of producing such a hoist. With this patented product, Botou Company gains a 12% increase in its profit. In 2004, the non-sparking beryllium copper shovel, non-sparking aluminum bronze shovel, and hand-operated non-sparking hoist were approved as high-tech products and earned the Certificate of National Torch Program Items.
People say that first-rate companies are selling standard by which all the other products are judged. It is true for Botou Safety Tools Company. The constant technical innovation has made Botou Company to become influential in the non-sparking tool manufacturing industry. In 2001, our company was accredited as a standard-making unit for domestic hand tools. Since 2002, we have been appointed to the task of drafting and revising the national standards for non-sparking tools. Currently, Botou Company is the only non-sparking tool manufacturer that owns rights of self-managed export and import and is approved by UKAS committee. As one of the largest non-sparking tool manufacturer in the world, Botou company provides over 300 series of best-in-class non-sparking tools available in 5000 specifications.
