A review of the development of S&S in the past 2 decades
★ In 1999, in an office of less than 20 sqm. in Tianma Building, Yantai city, Mr. Song Risheng and his wife Ms. Song Hua founded S&S. The worsted electro-heat calendering system developed then filled the gap in China.
★ In 2001, the company successfully developed the first D-056 semi-automatic selvage mark jacquard machine in China, a turn from worsted components to jacquard machine.
★ A fire broke out in 2005, and all assets of the company were turned into ashes. Under the joint efforts of many parties, S&S resumed production in 15 days.
★ In face of the weakened demand of textile equipment in 2008 owing to the financial crisis, the company timely innovated and launched lightweight equipment, and in the same year developed the world’s first crank-drive chain-gear jacquard machine. The market share ranked first in the world.
★ From 20 sqm. to 100,000 sqm., from 4 people to 600, and from one machine to more than 60,000, today S&S has been an innovative enterprise owing two world’s first technologies including crank-drive chain-gear jacquard machine and reed motion jet terry cloth looms, as well as more than 50 innovative intellectual property rights.
In recognition of the spirit of doing scientific research, and the entrepreneurial spirit with independent innovation, hard work, and the courage to take responsibility, Mr. Song Risheng was poshumously awarded the honorary title “National Entrepreneur Making Contributions to the Textile Industry” by China Textile Enterprise Association.
In the activity, in order to reward the hard work of the employees, S&S “Sheng Funds” was formally established, highlighting the responsibility and love of the company to the employees.
