A poor village has become the first village in the west
We have experienced 42 years of wind and rain
We have striven for progress for 42 years
We start the journey again after these 42 years
Donglingers, who dare to be the first in the world
When I was a kid, I used to asked the elderly, why we called this place Dongling? They told me that this place was higher than surrounding area, and due to the special geographical structure, this highland kept a good harvest despite drought or excessive rain, and could also be called outstanding. Nowadays, many elder people would never forget that in Lianmeng Village, an administrative village of more than 4,000 people, almost all the responsible persons of the clinic, scientific research station or enterprises are competitive Donglingers.
In the past, the main business of Donglingers was planting vegetables. Due to intensive and meticulous farming as well as the pursuit of brand quality, early in 1970s, large quantity of vegetables were exported overseas and they earned foreign exchange for our country. However, Donglingers was not satisfied with the current situation. In the spring tide of reform and opening up, they stood up on the tide bravely, and in the early period of reform and opening up, their dividing fields to households took the lead in the city!
In order to change the fortune, generations of farmers dared to think, to do and to break. In the beginning, although engaged in black and galvanized iron industry for a short time, the tinkers realized the potential risk - the threat of plastic products to us. How could we run before the tigers? In the absence of any conditions, we resolutely entered the field of light industry. In the era of shortage of economy and commodities in the 1980s, Marvelous Donglingers had radiated iron wire, round nails, cold drawing wire, ribbed steel bars, cement nails and other products to more than 10 provinces and cities around. At that time, many outsiders of the same industry did not know Baoji, but knew Dongling!
On the journey of life development, Donglingers, who would only be suspended but never finished, have boldly taken a very big step forward and enter the camp of steel and non-ferrous metal industry. Nobody knows that on this big stage, since 2000, Donglingers performed the industrial chains of steel and non-ferrous metal to their hearts’ content. From raw material iron mine, lead zinc ore and coal mine to smelting plant, steel, non-ferrous metal, coking, and market trade of products, the whole chain took more than 20 years to link.
Donglingers’ history of struggle speaks with the fact, and has assumed the three glorious and arduous responsibilities. First is the political responsibility. For the local political stability, kind Donglingers shared worries and solved difficulties for the government. Since 1990s, the Group successively received more than 10 state-owned enterprises such as Xianfeng Hardware, Electricity and Chemical Unit, Material Station, Fengxian Zinc Plant, Baoji Coking Plant, Lueyang Steel Plant, bringing these enterprises on the verge of bankruptcy back to life. The group resettled more than 10,000 state-owned enterprise employees, which was rare in the history of Shaanxi Province, and had been affirmed and praised by the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government. Due to its economic responsibility, the Group has not had a bad record in its long development path, and has recovered more than 10 billion yuan of economic losses for the country. The Group had never owe money to the common people and employees, and its tax contribution has ranked first in the county, the city and the province for consecutive years. The Group also undertook social responsibility. The Dongling urban complex in Dongdamen supported by the Group has already become a veritable name card of Baoji City, whose quality, scale and level would never be out-of-date even 20 years later. The Group’s contributions to public welfare undertakings, such as Baoji Dongling Lounge Bridge, Fengxian Jialingjiang Bridge and the best roads in Linyou, can leave to common people to evaluate.
Donglingers are worthy of our life, the great times, the people and the care and love of organizations at all levels. What did the forty years of rough wind and rain leave to current Donglingers? That’s great life. If we made no attempt to make progress, Donglingers today could not be what they are today. Although we encountered difficulties and problems on the way of career development, we also gained many experiences and lessons that many people didn’t know: If you don't do anything, you will have nothing. If we have shortcomings, we overcome them. If we have achievements, we carry them forward. That’s Donlinger’s life! It left great ideas: Nothing can't be done, only can’t you think of it; nothing can't be done well, only can't you think of it well. Who we are is not important, and the most important thing is to see who we are with. When you have such ideas, you have the mind to tolerate the world’s talents and do everything in the world. No matter where we were born, the important thing is where we go. We must think of things others couldn’t think of, and our life goal is to go up. For this goal, Dongling should give up a lot and use the most precious time to realize our goals. In order to achieve the goal, we turn bitter into sweet, turn tiredness into happiness.
We must go to places with sunshine, career and hope. Where there is our career, there are Donglingers. We must become an enterprise respected by the society. If we want others to respect us, we should first consider whether we respect others. If we want to make ourselves comfortable, we should make our partners comfortable. Thus we can leave a great career behind. The past 40 years leave us the new world to do something big, and now we propose the development goal of continuing Dongling for hundred years. We cherish the hard-won today very much, and would like to express our gratitude to the people from all walks of life that have given support and help to Dongling over the years. Facing the new era, we have no choice, but can only shoulder the burden of history with a deep sense of responsibility. We can only move forward and not retreat, and regard the crisis as our driving force. No matter how high the mountain is, we must climb to the top; no matter how big the tasks and goals are, we must realize them, because we are glorious and great Donglingers!
