In the early 1950s, the industrial development of Kaifeng was second to Luoyang in Henan Province, even better than Zhengzhou. By that time, Kaifeng has many large enterprises producing thousands of products such as Kaifeng Tobacco Factory, Kaifeng Diesel Engine Factory and Henan Woolen Mill etc. From 1960s to 1980s, the first TV set, refrigerator, ham sausage, bicycle and sewing machine in Henan were all produced by Kaifeng. It brought citizens of Kaifeng the pride.

 Kaifeng Radio Factory was the third factory in China producing transistor monochromatic TV set. It has the first TV Set assembly line equipped with signal source from CCTV in HenanProvince. Kaifeng TV Set definitely deserved the No.1 Brand in HenanProvince at that time.

The 1970s and 1980s were the peak time for Kaifeng’s Industrial Development. Kaifeng has many large scale enterprises with good sales record at home and abroad at that time.

Cigarette Production in Kaifeng Tobacco Factory




As the first beer brewery of Henan Province, Kaifeng Beer Brewery could produce 1.98 tons per month in 1960. There were hundreds of trucks waiting at the gate of Kaifeng Beer Brewery in summer. Sometime, some of them have to wait 2 or 3 days even longer.




 In 1970s, the products of Kaifeng Enamelware Factory were well known both in China and abroad. Basin, teacup and other daily enamelware were the essentials for local family. 



Is there anyone who could detail reasons for slump of Kaifeng’s industry and who should be responsible for the slump? Probably we need to find answers. However, we are delighted to see that in recent years, the industry of Kaifeng is entering a new period of repaid development while eliminating outmoded production. A great number of new brands are being developed healthily and strongly.
