Opening Speech in Global Forum on High-quality Development of Aggregates
At the opening ceremony, Li Shunshan, Vice President of China Aggregates Association and Chairman of NMS, mentioned in his speech that NMS had a very difficult time of transformation when it was a state-owned enterprise in the 1990s. The enterprise was basically in the state between production and suspension, and employees’ salary depended on financial loans. It was in Wuhan city that, with the help of experts from the Changjiang Water Resources Commission, the leaders of the Three Gorges Development Corporation noticed NMS’s abilities. The screening products of NMS became famous in the Three Gorges project, laying a solid foundation for NMS to win a good reputation in the crushing and screening for water conservancy and hydropower projects.
NMS has 616 employees today. It has several overseas sales and service companies and has set up a crusher research center in Sweden. Its products are sold to Brazil, Canada, the United States, France, Finland, Australia, Russia, South Africa and other parts of the world. The vision established by NMS, that is, to be quality benchmark of the industry, model of happiness enterprise, international well-known brand, is steadily under promotion.
At the global forum on high-quality development of aggregates, Chairman Li Shunshan gave a report entitled “analysis on the key points of competitiveness building of aggregates production enterprises”. In his report, he mentioned that at present, the aggregates industry in China is now under transformation from old pattern to new pattern through closedown, integration and reconstruction. It is an unprecedented time for all kinds of aggregates enterprises to expand larger, invest more and get more industries involved. More enterprises invest more in mines, and everyone looks forward to the development of aggregates industry. This is the start of transformation from Blue Ocean to Red Ocean. Under current situation of danger and opportunity coexisting, how to introduce risk management in the stage of project planning and how to deduce the future market changes require the attention of all aggregates enterprises.
Through communication and on-site investigation of aggregates enterprises, according to years of experience in the industry, combined with his own enterprise management practice, he analyzed the key elements of enterprise planning and construction, production management, innovation and upgrading, and business concepts, and put forward the ideas of how to build competitive aggregates enterprises that are able to remain invincible in the future competitive market. Chairman Li also presided over the global forum on high-quality development of aggregates (Section IV) and made a conclusion for the conference.

Zhao Bin, Vice Chief Engineer of NMS, delivered a speech entitled “scientific and technological innovation, overall solutions to green and efficient aggregates and mines in all fields” at the aggregates technology and equipment forum. He said that under the guidance of sustainable and rapid economic development policy, the aggregates industry has been developing with high quality for many years. In recent years, with the large-scale domestic aggregates and mines being put into operation, the processing technology, processing equipment, construction mode, product quality control and other fields of the aggregates industry have all made quality improvements due to quantity increase. The demand for high-quality aggregates products and the construction of green and efficient intelligent mines force the transformation and upgrading of traditional aggregates equipment suppliers.
NMS has been engaged in the aggregates equipment industry for 50 years. As a solution provider for rock and ore processing, NMS has complete sets of products, from primary, secondary and tertiary crushing, screening to shaping, sand making, electrical control, environmental protection and dust removal.

The sand-making equipment of NMS has a long history of application. Sand making equipment of NMS can be seen in water conservancy projects such as Three Gorges, Xiangjiaba, Baihetan and Xiluodu, and nuclear power projects such as Lingao nuclear power plant, Tianwan nuclear power plant and Ningde nuclear power plant. In order to meet the market demand, NMS is constantly innovating and promoting the vertical shaft sand-making machines to be developed into large-scale and high-efficiency sand-making equipment. The VS2000 super large-scale vertical impact crusher developed by the enterprise has a shaping passing capacity of 1000t/h, and the one-time passing sand forming rate of VSD two-edge high-efficiency sand-making machine is more than 55%. In addition, NMS combined high-efficiency screening equipment with advanced sand-making equipment and launched an efficient sand-making system that can be customized according to the site processing conditions. This kind of sand-making tower has been applied in projects in Yunnan, Anhui and other places, and the stable operation of the system has won high praise from customers.
