On May 22, the expansion project of Dalian Quacent New Building Materials Co., Ltd., a foreign-funded "Gazelle" enterprise in Dalian Free Trade Zone, officially started construction. This is another example of Dalian Free Trade Zone promoting epidemic prevention and control and economic and social development as a whole, taking project construction as the starting point to stabilize foreign trade, foreign capital, investment and growth, and accelerating the construction of key projects in a scientific and orderly manner.
Dalian Quacent New Building Materials Co., Ltd. Entered the bonded area as early as 2007 and is a production-oriented foreign-funded enterprise wholly owned by Canada's Amp Company. The company is committed to the research and development and manufacture of new environmentally friendly walls/panels and their derived industrial prefabricated residential systems. The high-quality prefabricated environmental protection and energy-saving walls/houses produced by the company belong to the national industrial policy encouragement projects and have been exported to more than 40 countries and regions. In 2017, the Company was rated as a national high-tech enterprise and a high-tech enterprise, and participated in the formulation of a number of national standards and industry standards. In November 2019, Quacent won the title of "Gazelle" Enterprise in Liaoning Province.
This expansion project is a new type of prefabricated environmental protection wall project with great potential in the domestic and foreign construction markets. During the epidemic period, market orders rose instead of falling. Due to insufficient production capacity, Quacent decided to increase investment in technology and capital, expand plant area and expand production capacity. In order to speed up the promotion of the project and ensure the completion and production of the project as soon as possible, the relevant departments of FTZ planning and construction have opened up a "green channel" for the project to start. It only takes 20 working days for the project to start from delisting the land to obtaining the "construction permit".
Since its listing, Dalian Free Trade Zone has maintained a high-density, high-speed and high-heat pace of system innovation and has made solid progress in "double self-linkage". During the epidemic period, the District Administrative Committee did everything possible to actively support the transformation and upgrading of enterprises in the district to high technology, high standards and high quality around the work requirements of "six stability" and "six guarantees", especially to increase the accuracy of policy support in the "four new" economic fields.
In the next step, Dalian will continue to highlight the characteristics of Dalian's international shipping center, logistics center and trade center in the planning and construction of free trade zones and free ports. Taking into account the development concepts of green, open and shared, we will create more development space and a better development environment for "gazelle enterprises" and "unicorn enterprises" like Quacent in the fields of standard setting, quality inspection, small town construction, eco-tourism and beautiful countryside.
