Dongguan started to speed up industrial transforming and upgrading and to close down outdated industries. At the same time, a large number of innovation-oriented companies emerged.

Dongguan ranks in top five in China for foreign trade volume. The city, once named world’s workshop, booked an increase of 8 percent in GDP, 10.2 percent in finance, 14.2 percent in revenue, 7.8 percent in export, thanks to its innovation driven strategy implementation. Up to now, Dongguan has 986 innovation-oriented enterprises, 28 research institutes, and over 30 innovation incubators said Yuan Baocheng, vice governor of People’s Government of Guangdong Province & mayor of Dongguan, in Beijing during the "two sessions".

Since financial crisis in 2008, Dongguan has been losing it former advantage gradually as higher cost of labor force, raw materials and land. Therefore, Dongguan started to speed up industrial transforming and upgrading and to close down outdated industries. At the same time, a large number of innovation-oriented companies emerged, such as Xionglin technology co., LTD.

As a technology-driven company focusing on developing and producing new-type materials, Xionglin is a model of transformation. Founded in 2009, the company mainly focuses on the research, production and marketing of TPU films, which is the future of new polymer materials due to its excellent properties.

The company supplies materials for internationally renowned brands like Nike, Adidas, Under Amor's, New Balance, Coach and etc . In future, they will further develop the application of this material in the area of clothing, building materials, automotive, military and high-speed rail.

The managing director Jack He said, “the company strives to realize internationalization as well as to seek cooperation with famous brands. The first factory of the company in Vietnam has been founded, and more factories will be set up in countries like India, Turkey, Europe, the United States, and Brazil in the future to strengthen their global competitiveness.”

In the past, many enterprises in Dongguan are OEM, while there are just few enterprises with independent brand and independent research power. Most OEM factories can only earn a meager profit, but fail to grasp the core technology of these productions and earn more money. However, Linxiong company and a batch of new companies in Dongguan have their core technologies and do a lot of R&D works now. They make great efforts to help the transformation of industry.

Jack He said: “They have 70 - 80 technological talents in the company. We will continue to recruit about 100 talents with doctor and master degrees for the further development of globalization. It is necessary to strengthen the innovative power to improve competitiveness, including improvement and upgrading of equipment, and product R&D. We will maintain the leading status in the global industry. We are the industry standard-setter at present, and we have nearly 100 patents. We will always put our attention to the protection of intellectual property.”

In "two sessions", Yuan also introduced the developmental mode of Dongguan in the next few years. He said Dongguan will conduct the strategy of stock adjustment. It will develop a new mode of economic development by promoting the transformation of traditional economy. For example, it will implement the strategy of “internet +” and support the development of research institutes. And it will continue to encourage more high-quality companies to develop in the city.

今年的全国两会上,东莞成为了被关注的焦点。广东省人民政府副省长,袁宝成在会上指出“2015年,东莞GDP增长8%;财政增长10.2%;税收增长14.2%;出口增长7.8%,是全国外贸总额前五名城市。东莞初具高科技城市的雏形。目前,东莞有986家创新型企业,创新研发机构28家,创新孵化器30多家,已经初尝创新发展的甜头。”

自08年世界金融危机后,随着劳动力成本增加、原材料土地价格上涨等因素,“世界工厂”东莞与其他地区相比,优势正在逐渐丧失。东莞加紧了转型升级,淘汰落后产能,一大批新型的创新型企业涌现,雄林科技公司便是其中之一。)

步入雄林科技公司的车间,能听听到生产线上机器的轰鸣,看到工人们密锣紧鼓地打包成品的身影。研发实验室内,各种机械正在监测着试验数据。

雄林是一家生产和研发新材料的科技公司,是东莞升级转型大潮中的佼佼者。公司成立于2009年,主要研发、生产和销售TPU薄膜,这种材料性能优异,是未来的新型高分子材料。

据介绍,公司的高分子产品是国际知名品牌耐克、阿迪达斯、Under Amor's,New Balance, Coach等知名品牌的指定供应商。未来,他们将进一步开拓在服装、建材、汽车、军工和高铁方面的应用。

公司董事长何建雄介绍,“在与大品牌结合的同时,公司积极走向国际化。在越南这一边已经开设了第一家工厂,未来在印度,土耳其,欧洲,美国,巴西都会设置工厂和分公司,为公司在全球范围的竞争力作进一步提升。”

过去东莞很多企业属于代工生产,自主品牌和自主研发的企业并不多。代工的工厂大多数只能赚取微薄的人工利润,既掌握不到核心产品科技,也拿不到品牌效益,并不利于企业的升级发展。而林雄公司,自主研发,掌握核心科技,努力能促进产业的转型。

董事长说:“现在我们大约有技术人员70-80人,还会继续招聘硕士博士约100人,为未来全球化奠定良好的知识结和研发的体系。专业方面知识的强化对提高竞争力非常有好处,包括设备的改良和升级换代,和产品的创新。我们会在全球整个行业里面保持领先状态,目前在国内来说,我们一方面是行业标准的制定者,同时也是专利申请最多的企业,有接近100项的发明专利,我们会一直重视知识产权。”

两会上,袁宝成指出了东莞未来的发展方向:存量调整。通过“互联网+”、个性化定制、研发机构建设,努力推动传统的、落后的加工贸易企业实现转型,打造新型经济。支撑东莞经济跨越发展的一个关键因素就是以科技创新为引领。
