Leading Position inAluminium Alloy Formwork Industry

As a growth engine of the Group's overallperformance, aluminium alloy formwork, the ecological construction material continuedto grow during the Period under Review. Leveraging its exceptional innovationcapability, the Group has been developing the all-aluminium formwork componentsand scaffoldings to enrich the product portfolio. Meanwhile, the Group hasexpanded the application of aluminium alloy formwork to public infrastructure projectssuch as underground pipe, subway tunnel and airport tunnel. Given therelatively low market penetration of aluminium alloy formwork in China, as wellas the favourable policies on ecological construction, aluminium alloy formworksees substantial market potential.

Steady Progress on Aluminium Flat Rolling Business  

During the Period under Review, theproduction efficiency of the aluminium flat rolling project in Tianjin graduallyimproved, contributing to a notable growth in the sales volume and revenue offlat rolling business. The aluminiumautomotive body sheet has passed accreditations from several new energy vehicleOEMs in China, and pilot production is underway. Meanwhile, the secondproduction line has been conducting trial production for potential clients,expecting to commence production within this year.
