The technologycenter of JXHT was established in July 2012. It wasidentified as municipal technology center by Jiaozuo Municipal Science andTechnology Bureau in October 2013 and as "Henan Industrial FurnaceEngineering Technology Center" by science and technology office of thePeople’s Government of Henan Province in December 2014. Since itsestablishment, the technology center has obtained11 national patents (another dozen are declared and pending) and 2provincial scientific research achievements, and it haspublished more than 10 influential professional papers in kernel journals.
Thecenter has a full range of R&D equipments and testers. It has 48professional and technical personnel including 8 senior engineers, 1 doctoraland 8 master's degree. In order to make the research and development ability torun quickly into the fast lane, the center strengthens cooperation with many colleges anduniversities such as University of Science and Technology Beijing, WuhanUniversity of Science and Technology, Xi`anUniversity of Architecture and Technology, hired a number of seniorexperts and professors as the company's technical adviser.
