The introduction of independent research and development of new equipment shoe factory Liu Yuan shoe factory is located in the common river area of Pyongyang. It was founded in 1988 and is the first injection molding shoe factory in North Korea. Originally invested in the construction of foreign nationals, they were changed several times because of poor operations and were eventually nationalized by the DPRK. Ren Yixiong, the chief engineer of the factory, told reporters that the factory used an old imported production line, which mainly produced a single style of cloth shoes and sports shoes. Although cheap and durable, production and design can not meet Korean domestic consumption demand. Last year, Liu Yuan shoe factory has been rebuilt under the arrangement and supervision of the state, and the new mechanical equipment developed by Korean technicians has been introduced, which greatly improves the production efficiency. Ren Yixiong introduced that the new production line is designed and made by Pyongyang footwear machinery factory and Liu Yuan shoe factory. Automatic operation, low power consumption, 2000 pairs of shoes a day can be produced, and the annual output can reach 1 million pairs. Another factor that can stabilize production is power protection. Since last July, the Liu Yuan shoemaking factory began to use solar energy on a large scale. More than 1200 solar panels are laid on the roof of the shoe factory, which can guarantee 80% of the shoe factorys electricity demand. Increase the design and development of new fashion shoes Last year alone, the Department developed and produced more than 200 new styles of shoes, which are popular among Korean consumers. Shen Enxin introduced that when designing, he would understand the trend of the world and combine the preferences of Korean people to form the design of Korean characteristics. Some shoes are specially designed for students, priced at 15000 North Korean yuan, or about 12 yuan. Some football shoes are more fashionable in color and fashion, priced at 84000 North Korean yuan, or about 65 yuan. First meet domestic demand and then go to the world. According to Ren Yixiong, the products produced by factories are now mainly used for domestic needs. Some of them are used at low prices for primary school students and kindergarten students, while the other is placed in stores and markets, and the gains will be invested in the expansion of production. After meeting the DPRKs domestic demand, we hope to produce products that are also competitive in the international market in the future.
