CIMC Milestones

1980-2016

On September 22, 1982, China International Marine Containers (Group) Ltd. (CIMC Group) formally put into production.

Foreign capital background of shareholders and initial operation and management by a foreign party provided CIMC with international and market genes.


On August 27, 1986, CIMC closed down the container production business and switched to steel structure processing.

The plant was originally operated by East Asiatic Company in early days. Later on, due to the recession of global shipping industry and the company’s internal cultural conflicts, CIMC slid into loss for years since the beginning of operation in 1982, and then it was on the edge of closing down in 1986. Given this, the Board of Directors resolved upon an “internal liquidation” to retain key managerial and technical employees, closed down the container production business and switched to steel structure processing. East Asiatic Company handed over the power of CIMC operation and management to China Merchants.

CIMC got a profound experience and understanding on the market-oriented economy from the distressing experience of walking on the edge of closing down, and the active adaption to the market and valiant struggle following production change hatched CIMC’s “ceaseless self-improvement” culture. This corporate culture becomes a powerful mental strength driving CIMC toward unceasing innovation and development.

On July 1, 1987, COSCO became a shareholder of CIMC, making CIMC a three-way joint venture.

After this share participation, COSCO and China Merchants' Steam Navigation Company accounted for 45% of total shares respectively, while East Asiatic Company accounted for 10% of total shares. The participation of COSCO brought valuable market resources for CIMC. At that time, the industry was recovering and CIMC made a re-enter in the container manufacturing industry. On this basis, CIMC improved technologies, fostered talent teams and accumulated experience to gradually develop international market. After the reorganization, CIMC also formed the unique “balance of two forces” corporate governance structure, providing good institutional foundation for sustainable and healthy development of CIMC. This scientific corporate structure with “clearly established ownership, accountability and coexistence of interests” provided basic institutional guarantee for scientific decision-making, effective monitoring mechanism, flexible management mechanism and rational distribution mechanism for CIMC.

On January 18, 2008, "CIMC Lean ONE Mode" concept officially proposed at the annual work meeting of the Group.
