Yuci Hydraulic Industry, established in 1964, is regarded as a "cradle of China's hydraulic industry" and currently serves as one of China's largest and most competitive high-end hydraulic product research and production bases.

The company, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Taiyuan Heavy Machinery Group, has played a decisive role during the development of hydraulic industry in China via promoting opening-up, market exploration and technological innovation. It focuses on the research of world-advanced hydraulic components and made breakthroughs in materials study and the research of plunger pumps, high pressure valves and multi-way valves.

Over the half-century development, the company has formed a complete management system and won many honorary titles in the province. Its production capacity has also significantly improved, increasing from about 50,000 units per year 40 years ago to currently 3 million hydraulic components, 40,000 hydraulic systems and 3.5 metric tons of related castings per year. The annual output value has also increased to nearly 500 million yuan ($74.47 million) from 20 million yuan several decades ago.

The company now has four branches focusing on different sectors -- castings, hydraulic pumps, hydraulic valves and hydraulic systems. It also has three advanced hydraulic product research and manufacturing subsidiaries in Shanghai, Changzhi in Shanxi province and Jinan, capital city of Shandong province.

Their products, including paddle pumps, motors, oil cylinders and various types of castings, can be widely used in fields of engineering machinery, transport, petroleum machinery, metallurgy, coal mining, marine engineering, aerospace, water conservancy and electric power. They have been exported to the European, American, Asian and African countries and regions.
