It isn’t often that Chinese mills are given the
chance to tell their stories to U.S. cotton
growers, and I am excited to join other
Chinese mills who have shared their views
in past issues of Cotton Farming.
I am general manager of the Wuxi Qingfeng
Stock Company, Ltd., in Jiangsu province
in China. I am pleased that this magazine and
Bayer CropScience understand the importance
of the United States-China relationship
in the cotton industry. That is why it is so
encouraging that many Chinese mills have
been featured in your magazine so far
I am glad that I have a chance to convey
some thoughts about Wuxi Qingfeng, a cotton
textile company with more than 80 years
of history. Equipped with 150,000 spindles
and more than 300 sets of jet looms, our company
has the capability of producing 18,000
tons of cotton yarn and 30 million meters of
cotton cloth each year.
For those of you not familiar with Chinese
geography, Jiangsu province is located in the
middle of China’s eastern coast on the lower
part of the Yangtze River. The climate in
Jiangsu is monsoonal in a temperate and subtropical
zone, giving the area warm winters
and hot summers.
Our company is known for producing the
highest quality cotton yarn, and we have won
several awards: Pioneer of China Textile
Industry, China’s First Grade Enterprise,
Quality Management Prize of China and Hi-
Tech Enterprise of Jiangsu Province.
We are very proud of these achievements,
and we embrace technology at all levels of
textile manufacturing. It gives our ownership
a great sense of pride when we are recognized
for the final result – whether it’s the finished
product or a safety award that goes
along with it.
Diversified Product Line
Our yarn products include dyed and dense
yarn, high count yarn, top grade knitting yarn,
stretch yarn, slubbed yarn, Tencel and special
yarn. The top garment fabrics include bedding
fabrics, satin and satin stripe, small jacquard
and large jacquard.
As for the cotton we desire, FiberMax
cotton continues to show consistency in its
performance, and this is what sets it apart
from other imported cottons.
The Wuxi Qingfeng company appreciates
the ongoing relationship with U.S. cotton producers,
and we are hopeful that we can sustain
this wonderful partnership. We know that
you are committed to delivering quality cotton
to Chinese customers. For that, we are
extremely appreciative of what you do for us.
We know the weather was unpredictable
for you in 2009, but we are sending best
wishes for an excellent crop season this year.
Thanks for being our business partner.
