18th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference 2016 Was Successfully Held in Shanghai
18th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference 2016, China Casting Exporting Conference and China Foundry Conference were successfully held at Shanghai Everbright Int’l Hotel during April 20-21. It was organized by Suppliers China Co., Ltd., co-sponsored by National Technical Committee 54 on Foundry of Standardization Administration of China.

Activity information is as following:
China Casting Exporting Conference in the morning of April 20
As we all know, China is the world's largest casting production and consumption country, but the proportion of casting exports only accounts for 10%, which is mainly concentrated on low-end products. In recent years, due to the stagnant global economic environment, multinational corporations have showed the weak demand for castings; the buyers have carried out cost reduction plans such as transfer the low added-value casting purchase orders from China to Southeast Asia and other countries with cheaper labor. Casting production enterprises in China not only have suffered the lower demand from buyers, but also faced the pressure of capital, labor and environmental protection. The advantage of low cost in Chinese foundry industry is gradually disappearing. If we don’t improve labor productivity, casting quality, reduce the cost of production, change the competitive strategy, the brutal market will ruthlessly eliminate a large number of enterprises which are not competitive.
How to survive under the new economic situation? Casting production enterprises hope that they can negotiate with multinational buyers with procurement projects, as well as can know the latest purchasing trends, multinational procurement processes and supplier audit standards. Casting production enterprises also hope to learn from advanced experienced enterprise, in order to enhance the comprehensive strength of the enterprise, undertake more quality orders, expand export share, and improve product added value.
According to the demand of China casting export enterprises, FSC prepared this academic activity during the 18th Global Foundry Sourcing Conference, invited industry senior experts, multinational buyers, and casting production enterprises to make a report from the point of "export of casting". The followings are the topics:
Senior experts -- Chinese Academy of agricultural mechanization, former vice president Mr. Zhang Boming made a presentation with the topic of “Problems Encountered in the Casting Export Process and the Countermeasures For it". He analyzed the domestic casting industry export situation and the underlying causes and the common problems encountered in exporting. Mr. Zhang also analyzed the reasons for three European buyers failed in Chinese supplier development, and put forward some suggestions for domestic enterprises. Mr. Zhang’s report was close to reality, thus won the unanimous praise from participants.
Senior experts -- National Technical Committee 54 on Foundry of Standardization Administration of China deputy secretary Mr. Zhang Yin made a presentation from the points of foundry industry national standard, international standard, domestic and international standard differences. Mr. Zhang hopes to provide support technical standards for casting export enterprises by raising the level of standard service, and suggested that capable enterprises can actively participate in the revise work of foundry industry national standard, to enhance the enterprise's soft power.
Overseas buyer -- Canadian Ferrotech Menard, Inc. CEO -- Mr. Yves Menard has been engaged in casting procurement for nearly 20 years in China and has a rich procurement experience. The purpose for this trip to China is to analyze Chinese parts procurement trend, advantages and disadvantages of Chinese foundry enterprises, opportunities and challenges from the view of the North American buyers with the actual procurement case analysis. He also proposed some comments and suggestions for the development of Chinese foundry enterprises.
China Procurement Center of Multinational Group -- Sulzer purchasing manager Mr. Su Dayong made a report about "Supplier Development Process for Multinational Groups". With 7 years foundry production experience, 14 years of casting supplier development and supply chain management experience, Mr. Su introduced in detail the six channels of multinational supplier development, seven standards of supplier evaluation, the composition of procurement team personnel, the division of functions and supplier audition as well as supplier maintenance process, to help the domestic foundry enterprises understand the international group procurement process and facilitate their deal with buyers.
Domestic large-scale buyer -- from purchaser's viewpoint, purchasing manager Mr. Zhang Mingzhe from Yutong Group gave an in-depth analysis about quality, cost, delivery, service and technology. He did a report on "Casting QCDTS" and offered comments and suggestions to the suppliers.
Ms. Emma Kombrinkof from Latin America Markets, LLC did a specific report on “Latin America Casting Exporting Situation and Market Development Suggestions", hoping to help domestic enterprises explore Latin America market.

To meet Chinese foundries demand, he also introduced the trend and development of German casting industry, the differences between Chinese and German foundries, the internationalization of Chinese foundries and investment.
Excellent casting exporting enterprise -- manager Mr. Wang Rui from Impro (China) Co., Ltd. introduced the company’s improvement and internationalization process. Having founded for 18 years, its global sales in 2015 is 400 times that of the start, which is a model for Chinese suppliers.
We have excellent reports in the morning where industry experts, buyers and suppliers shared reports centered on "casting exporting” and gave suggestions to exporting enterprises. We hope that casting exporting enterprises attach more importance on the market, analyze transnational purchasing trends, actively expand the overseas market and become more familiar with international trade rules. Thus, they can occupy a favorable position in the global castings market and get more say in international trade.
