Situated in Guandu town, northeast of Zhanjiang city, Guandu Industrial Park has a first phase planning area of 5,000 mu (333 hectares), and a construction area of 2,500 mu.
Established in October of 2012 by the government of Potou district, and approved by the government of Zhanjiang city, the park is just over 10 kilometers from the downtown, and less than 20 kilometers from Zhanjiang Port, Zhanjiang South Railway Station and Zhanjiang Airport.
It has geographical and transportation advantages of sea, land and air, as Guangzhou-Zhanjiang highway, G325 highway and the Maoming-Zhanjiang railway, which is under construction, run through it. Both the entrance and exit of Guangzhou-Zhanjiang highway are inside the park.
The industrial park focuses on the production of rice cookers, energy-saving lamps, electric kettles, and coffee and milk pots; some of them are exported to overseas markets, and have gradually formed into industrial chains, such as raw material supply, product R&D, spare parts, assembly production, sales and services.
With an annual production capacity of 30 million electric rice cookers and 20 million energy-saving lamps, the industrial park has formed a preliminary cluster production base, making itself the most characteristic industry in the park.
In 2010, Guandu Industrial Park had a total output of 3.1 billion yuan ($492 million) and a total of $54.25 million in foreign trade, and created nearly 8,000 jobs; all of which brought good economic and social benefits.
