Duchang Shipyard Co., Ltd, which was previously a state-owned company, can be traced back to the year of 1950. In the early 1970s, the company became one of the steel-ship builders authorized by the Ministry of Communications. The company has been honored many times by the Ministry of Communications, by the Provincial Government and by the Municipal Government for its good management and the high quality of its products.
