core tip: time is easy to grow old, and feelings are unforgettable

there is one thing, which condenses time into a mark, records the changes of the times, and carries the feelings of generations. Badges have always been worn by people to indicate their identity or occupation. Different kinds of badges in each period condense history and culture into small footprints, twist one in the hand, and look closely, as if it opened the door of memory

there is one thing, which condenses time into a mark, records the changes of the times, and carries the feelings of generations. Badges have always been worn by people to indicate their identity or occupation. Different kinds of badges in each period condense history and culture into small footprints, twist one in the hand, and look closely, as if it opened the door of memory

recently, Jiaxing collector Su Weigang donated nearly 300 badges related to the history of Jiaxing to Jiaxing Museum, including factory badges, school badges, commemorative badges... In the rusty metal smell, from economy to life, from the Republic of China to modern times, Jiaxing's dusty history was awakened one by one

today, let's interpret history from these badges and review the vicissitudes of Jiaxing

Recently, Chen Jianguo (a pseudonym), a retired employee of Minfeng Specialty Paper Co., Ltd., saw three factory badges with different names, namely Minfeng Huafeng Paper Company, Minfeng paper factory and Dongfeng paper factory. Three factory badges and three sections of history are about the same enterprise

the name of the factory has been changed several times. In 1936, China's first cigarette paper was made.

now, Minfeng Special Paper Co., Ltd., located at No. 70 Luli street, Nanhu District, Jiaxing, has put forward a series of solutions. In the factory area, there is still a brick structure factory left at the beginning of its creation, and the numbers of "1923" on the vertical surface of the outer wall are very eye-catching. "This is the oldest factory." After working in the factory in 1975, Chen Jianguo was assigned to the production workshop. Within a year, he was transferred to administrative work, and his office was also in the old factory. Up to today, these old plants are still in use after the plant has been transformed and upgraded several times

among the "five major state-owned factories" in Jiaxing, Minfeng paper mill has a longer history than metallurgical mills, silk mills, wool mills, etc. Strolling around the Minfeng light exhibition hall in the factory seems to start a journey of tracing the origin. Minfeng was founded by Chu Fucheng, a man we can't forget. Chu Fucheng, who was born in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, is a famous social activist and patriotic Democrat. He is also the earliest founder of Minfeng

In 1923, Chu Fucheng initiated and invited friends to raise 360000 silver dollars to establish Hefeng paper mill, which was located in Luli street outside the east gate of Jiaxing. The news of the founding of Hefeng paper mill in Jiaxing can be called a local event, which attracted local media to report, and it can be said to be a household name at that time. In February of the next year, Hefeng ordered American made equipment from Shanghai Maosheng foreign bank. By August of 1925, Hefeng paper mill was officially put into operation and has 178 employees

it was a turbulent era, and it was really not easy to develop industry. At that time, China was still in a semi colonial position, and tariffs could not be independent. The market price of yellow paperboard produced by Hefeng plummeted, causing serious losses. The factory was once shut down, and Japanese businesses were even more ready to move. In order to break the industry monopoly and prevent Hefeng industry from falling into the hands of Japanese businessmen, Chu Fucheng contacted Zhu Meixian. In 1929, Zhu Meixian raised funds to purchase Jiaxing Hefeng paper mill, which was renamed Minfeng Paper Co., Ltd. In 1931, Zhu Meixian bought Hangzhou Wulin paper mill and changed its name to Huafeng Paper Co., Ltd. Minfeng and Huafeng Paper Co., Ltd. merged in Ningbo Road, Shanghai, collectively known as minhuafeng Paper Co., Ltd., hereinafter referred to as the head office

"at that time, it was also called 'minhuafeng paper company'. Minfeng was in Jiaxing and Huafeng was in Hangzhou." Chen Jianguo speculated that the operation time of the head office was from 1931 to 1954, and the factory logo printed with the words "Minfeng Huafeng Paper Company" should come from a period later in 1931. Under the leadership of Zhu Meixian, Minfeng paper mill experienced a glorious period. It registered the ship brand trademark and established the China cardboard factory Trade Federation with five domestic cardboard factories at that time. The most sensational event at that time was the creation of China's first cigarette paper

due to the oppression of imperialism, the operation of domestic tobacco companies was poor at that time. Zhu Meixian was determined to produce cigarette paper to resist economic aggression. Minfeng paper mill bought German equipment, sent technicians overseas to learn technology, and hired foreign experts to provide technical guidance. In 1936, once the ship brand cigarette paper came out, it was highly praised, breaking the foreign technological monopoly at one stroke

after the liberation of Jiaxing, the traumatized paper mill returned to the hands of the people and gradually resumed production. On October 31, 1953, the board of directors of Minfeng formally submitted an application for public-private partnership to the Department of industry of the people's Government of Zhejiang Province. Upon approval, Minfeng factory has implemented public-private partnership since January 1st, 1953, and is named as public-private partnership Minfeng Paper Co., Ltd., hereinafter referred to as public-private partnership Minfeng paper mill. Since then, the title of Minfeng paper mill has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people

From 1955 to 1956, Minfeng paper mill ushered in another historical peak. In response to the slogan of "creating new products and serving the construction of heavy industry", the whole factory staff actively invested in the trial production of new products. From 1955 to 1956, the paper mill successfully trial produced nearly 10 kinds of products, such as capacitor paper and tracing paper. This is the first time that capacitor paper has been successfully trial produced and put into mass production in China. Minfeng "5 brother" is trying to buy off-line resources. The light of integration exhibition hall still displays the congratulatory letter sent by the Zhejiang provincial Party committee in 1960 because the service life of the product depends on the quality of one product

from 1966 to 1976, the paper mill was renamed "Dongfeng paper mill", and then its name was restored. In 1980 and 1984, the capacitor paper produced by Minfeng was commended by the CPC Central Committee, the State Council and the Central Military Commission and sent a congratulatory message as a supporting paper for the successful launch of carrier rockets into the Pacific Ocean and the successful launch of test communication satellites

as an old employee of Minfeng, Chen Jianguo has a more intuitive impression: in the era of planned economy, Minfeng factory is like a small society, with complete supporting facilities such as Minfeng children's kindergarten, Minfeng staff University, staff bathroom and staff hospital. From the pre liberation to the 1990s, families' dormitories have been built and put into use. In the high temperature season, each employee can get a bottle of salt and soda in glass bottles. At that time, only Minfeng and metallurgical plant were like this. Many young people clamped the soda directly on the back rack of their bicycles when they came home from work in order to "show their identity as employees of large factories". During the Spring Festival, the factory will give workers fish, meat, fruits and so on. At that time, when materials were relatively scarce, some things could be regarded as "rare things" that money could not buy... The reform was bound to be accompanied by pain, and Minfeng paper mill was no exception. "In the period of planned economy, the supply and marketing department and production department in the factory only need to arrange production according to the plan of the competent department." Chen Jianguo said that in the era of market economy, we should not only find orders by ourselves, but also face the competition of peers. At that time, the leaders and employees were under great pressure. The inertia and traces of planned economy in enterprises can be seen everywhere. This pain lasts for many years

in the 1990s, like most state-owned enterprises in Jiaxing, Minfeng paper mill also suffered from common problems such as outdated equipment, backward technology and low production efficiency. At that time, the clarion call of "state-owned enterprise reform" was officially sounded, and Minfeng launched the "overall plan for deepening the reform of enterprise labor employment and distribution system" and related supporting reform measures. So far, the concepts of enterprises and employees have gradually changed, and Minfeng has also relatively safely realized the transformation from a planned economy to a market economy

on June 15, 2000, Minfeng special paper stock was listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange

in 1996, Minfeng group company kicked off the joint-stock reform and established a listed company. In 2000, "Minfeng special paper", the "first share of China special paper", was born. The opening price of the stock trading day was 13.77 yuan, with a trading volume of 29.3465 million shares and a transaction amount of 41.21 million yuan. The dividends of the reform have gradually become prominent. Chen Jianguo remembers that in just three years after the company was listed, a new production line was built and put into operation every year, and some old production lines with high consumption and low production capacity were also eliminated. In 2001, Minfeng first imported a world-class cigarette paper production line from Germany, worth about 250million yuan

after nirvana, fight steadily. Since its establishment 95 years ago, this established enterprise that has witnessed the historical changes of Jiaxing is still located in Luli street and tells the story of time
