Dachong top hub for rosewood furniture

About 60 percent of China’s total annual revenue for the line comes from this Zhongshan town.

Dachong relies on a strong supplier base and solid government backing to become the principal manufacturing hub for rosewood furniture in China. This town in the southwest part of Zhongshan city of Guangdong province is home to an estimated 400 specialists that roll out living, bedroom, dining and office pieces. These enterprises generate more than $330 million each year, accounting for about 60 percent of the country’s total annual revenue from the sector. Products are exported mainly to the EU, North America, the Middle East and South Africa.

The hub’s rosewood furniture industry has been growing steadily for the past 30 years, thanks in part to the efforts of the local and provincial administration. The former has been committed to brand building, resulting in the creation at least 800 patented designs from Dachong-based manufacturers. The town also boasts 26 provincial-level famous brands.

In December 2001, Dachong hosted the First China Rosewood Furniture Development Seminar and the Dachong Fine Rosewood Furniture Exhibition. Two years later, the Ministry of Culture gave the town the title Home of Chinese Rosewood Carving Art. The China Light Industry Federation and China Furniture Association also named the hub China’s Special Town of Rosewood Furniture Production.

Zhongshan is a prefecture-level city in the south of the Pearl River Delta region. It was renamed in honor of Dr. Sun Yat-sen, who went by the name Zungsaan and was from Cuiheng village of Nanlang Town.

Zhongshan is located along the west side of the mouth of the Pearl River Delta, directly opposite Shenzhen and Hong Kong. The area, Dongguan, Nanhai and Shunde are called the Four Little Tigers of Guangdong. The proximity of Zhongshan to Hong Kong and Macau is an advantage to its economic development, especially in the manufacturing industries.

The government of Zhongshan encourages research and design by setting up national-level research centers and specialized industrial regions. For example, the Zhongshan National Torch High-Tech Industrial Development Zone was established in 1990 by the Ministry of Science and Technology and the governments of Guangdong and Zhongshan.

Zhongshan Port, which ranks among the top 10 ports nationwide in terms of container-handling capacity, is in the zone. The primary industries are agriculture, with rice, lychee, banana and sugar cane the main crops. Added to this, horticulture in Zhongshan is famous throughout southern China for its blooming chrysanthemum.
