As a pillar of national economy and a fundamental livelihood industry, light industry involves all aspects of people’s life. It is closely related to people’s basic necessities and plays a major role in meeting their needs for a better life.

The national industry was backward overall in modern China. After the founding of new China, industrialization was set as the strategic objective of top priority. Since the first “Five-Year Plan” period, a number of institutes had been established to promote the development of light industry, including national scientific research institutes in the fields of daily chemicals, food and fermentation, pulp and paper, leather and shoemaking, etc., as well as light industry engineering design institutes in major cities across the country. These state-level research and engineering design institutes of light industry are the predecessors of present subsidiaries of Sinolight Corporation. By self-reliance and independent innovation, they have created records in research and engineering in new China with a lot of technologies and products. As a major participant in industrial development, technical support and project construction of China’s light industry, these institutes have made significant contributions in driving the industry to grow into big and strong from scratch and meet people’s needs in life.

Through seven decades of restructuring and development, with hard work and great effort of several generations, Sinolight has developed into a large innovative enterprise group in China’s light industry. In science and technology R&D, by giving full play to its advantages in scientific research platforms and talents, Sinolight has made a number of major achievements of international level and widely applied them in people’s life. By playing a leading role in formulating many ISO standards, Sinolight has won a bigger say for China in international standards formulation and firmly supported domestic products’ entrance into global market. In engineering services, Sinolight is capable of providing services of entire process, high quality and full package, by integrating engineering design, consulting, general contracting, project management and construction supervision, etc. On the path of sustainable development, Sinolight leads in industrial energy conservation and emissions reduction by actively promoting new technologies, techniques and materials. In the field of light industrial equipment, especially pulping and papermaking equipment manufacturing, Sinolight takes intelligence as the direction and provides customized solutions for clients with both system integration and core equipment development. As a leader of scientific and technological progress, industrial transformation and upgrading in China’s light industry, Sinolight has always been demonstrating its influence and guidance of state-owned enterprise.

Since 2017, the year Sinolight was restructured into China Poly Group Corporation, World Top 500, Sinolight has come to a new stage of development. It closely follows the state strategy of building pro-innovation country, works towards enabling people to live a better life and abides by the high-quality development as a new concept for development. Sinolight takes the opportunity and achieves the consensus by laying a new strategic development planning. Sinolight proactively seizes the period of strategic opportunity that the state drives “Internet Plus”, vigorously promotes the building of Internet Data Information Platform of light industry and dedicates to providing customers with integrated, systematic and customized services. Besides, Sinolight integrates its best resources in industrial testing and commits itself to providing high-level services for entity enterprises.

The wind is strong enough to set sail. Now is the time to blaze the trail. Guided by the new strategic development planning, Sinolight pursues the vision of “For a better life”, upholds the values of “Pragmatic, Innovative, Open, Collaborative and Responsible”, and positively fulfills its mission of “To empower the industry and create a better life with science and technology”. Sinolight is striving to become a scientific and technological innovation industrial group in light industry, which is nationally leading and internationally renowned.
