Singamas Container Holdings Ltd
The world's second largest container manufacturer
Singamas Container Holdings Limited (“Singamas”) plays a significant role in the global container manufacturing industry and has been listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange since 1993.
Today, it is the world's second largest container manufacturer with all its production facilities based in China. Apart from container manufacturing, Singamas is also a major operator of container depots and terminals in the Asian-Pacific Region. Singamas was established in 1988 and its first container plant was set up in Shanghai in 1990. The company envisaged that China would be the country for production and its plant locations proliferated from that time. Now, it has 11 factories, all in the vicinity of major ports of China.
Singamas produces a wide range of products including dry freight containers, refrigerated containers, tank containers, 53’ US domestic containers, and other specialized containers.
As the demand for logistics services from global shipping industry continued to grow, so did Singamas’ business portfolio. Singamas first established its container depots in Tianjin and Qingdao in 1994.
The company diversified into the logistics business in 2001. The company now owns 11 container depots and terminals – eight in major ports of China (Dalian, Tianjin, Qingdao, Shanghai, Qidong, Ningbo, Fuzhou, and Xiamen), two in Hong Kong and one in Laem Chabang, Thailand. It also runs a logistics company in Xiamen.
In light of strong demand for shipping containers, Singamas has recently built two new container factories at the city of Qidong, close to Shanghai and along the bank of the Yangtze River. They are a dry freight and specialized container factory as well as a refrigerated container factory. With these two new factories in place, Singamas annual production capacity now reaches 1,000,000 TEUs.
