Born in December 1968, Peng Xinghua was born in Xiangxiang, Hunan Province. In 1992, he graduated from the Engineering Department of Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute, obtained a bachelor’s degree in silicate engineering . After graduation, he was assigned as the chief technical engineer of Nanzhu Ceramics Factory in Nanbian Town, Sanshui, Guangdong Province. In 1993, he worked in ceramic technology at Nanying Ceramics Factory in Fujian Province. These work experiences have given him enough time and opportunity to dive into research. In 1996, he developed and built a professional firing kiln for ceramic production. In just six years, Peng Xinghua has built more than 200 ceramic kilns in Fujian, Guangdong, Shandong, Liaoning, Yunnan and other places, of which the market share in the kiln market in Fujian once reached 70%. In 2000, Peng Xinghua’s kiln was successfully exported to Taiwan, Indonesia and other countries and regions. This is the first time that China exported its kiln to other countries, filling the gap in China’s exports and rewriting the history of China’s kiln equipment that can only be imported from Germany and Japan. From 1996 to 2002, Peng Xinghua successively designed and produced more than 200 roller kiln for ceramic production, which was recognized by many ceramic enterprises, and accumulated a large number of contacts and resources for his own entrepreneurship in the future.
Fully develop products, create corporate brands
In May 2002, Peng Xinghua established LOPO Clay Brick Tile Factory, of which the main products are clay brick tiles, and served as the chairman of the factory. In 2003, due to the SARS, the products were slow-moving and experienced a crisis of bankruptcy. After this, Peng Xinghua seems to be more and more frustrated.
In 2010, LOPO invested 1.5 billion to establish LOPO Terracotta Panel Factory in Zhangzhou, Peng Xinghua as executive director, and served as vice president of Guan’an Chamber of Commerce in Nan’an, Fujian Province, executive vice president of Hunan Chamber of Commerce in Fujian Province, and Quanzhou in 2016. Hunan business people unanimously elected the first president of the Hunan Chamber of Commerce in Quanzhou.
Peng Xinghua personally led the technical team to fully grasp the development of ceramic plates and product quality, and the rich experience has laid a solid product technology foundation for the company’s terracotta panels manufacturing. Today, LOPO has won the honors of “Famous Trademark of Fujian Province” and “Famous Trademark of Quanzhou City” and has been awarded “Civilized Unit”, “Star Enterprise” and “Contract-honoring and Credit-keeping Unit” for many times.
After more than ten years of “opening up the land”, Peng Xinghua is actively engaged in public welfare and is working hard for energy conservation and environmental protection while its production scale is steadily expanding and growing year by year . At the beginning of his business, he used environmental protection to position the development of enterprises, withstood the pressure brought by high costs, and selected new equipment and new technologies for energy conservation and environmental protection. In 2009, in order to further realize energy conservation and environmental protection, LOPO took the lead in using natural gas in clay brick tile factory. The factory production environment and corporate environmental protection emissions are among the highest in the ceramic industry.
In the charity cause, Peng Xinghua has spared no effort. He successively funded Tangshang Primary School, Guanqiao Wuxing Middle School, and Shangshang Village Senior Citizens Association. In the Wenchuan Earthquake in Sichuan, he took the lead in donating money and organizing employees to offer love. In 2008, Peng Xinghua donated 100,000 yuan to the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute Education Foundation in order to help the poor students to complete their studies. In 2016, a serious flood disaster occurred in Liye Town, Longshan County, Hunan Province. Peng Xinghua led all members of the Hunan Chamber of Commerce in Quanzhou to donate money and materials to the people in the disaster area and actively participated in the rescue of the people in the disaster area. Today, Peng Xinghua has donated more than one million to various public welfare undertakings.
The success of an entrepreneur, material wealth is only a representation, and social responsibility is the benchmark for measurement. As a private entrepreneur, Peng Xinghua interprets the responsibility of entrepreneurs with action. Because of this responsibility, it is difficult to find the atmosphere of a businessman in Peng Xinghua’s body. Perhaps he was a technology-born person who only insisted on the art of the art of clay and fire to decorate the prosperity of the world.
