MCC-CERI was initially founded in 1951 as a design institute by the name of, Beijing Central Engineering and Research Incorporation of Iron & Steel Industry (CERIS) and through the course of overall restructuring, the Capital Engineering & Research Incorporation Ltd. (hereinafter called ‘CERI’) was founded on Nov. 28, 2003 in accordance with relevant state policy requirement and under the leadership of China Metallurgical Construction Corp. (MCC). CERI is a modern multi-shareholding enterprise possessing an array of intellectual property rights, manufacturing equipment, and technical management expertise. It is a dynamic and competitive company.
As the leading company within the Chinese metallurgical industry, more than 6000 projects have been successfully completed by MCC-CERI during the past 50 years. Four main business fields have been established to include EPC of projects, equipment and material manufacture, real-estate development and resource development covering the mineral, metallurgical, chemical, power, public service highway and building sectors. The company has experienced rapid growth after restructuring in 2003, and now have contract volume over 12.7 billion RMB and the turnover has reached over 10 billion RMB in 2008 (1.5 billion USD).
