China CNR Corporation Limited (CNR; Chinese: 中国北车集团) (SEHK6199, SSE: 601299) formerly known as China North Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation is a state-owned enterprise supervised by the State Council of the People's Republic of China. The company is primarily a manufacturer of locomotives and rolling stock for the domestic market and also export markets in Angola, New Zealand, Malaysia, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Cuba.[2]


In 1986 the China National Railway Locomotive & Rolling Stock Industry Corporation (LORIC) was formed, comprising 35 production sites and 4 research centres. In 2000 the China Northern Locomotive & Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation (also known as China Beiche Group)[3] was formed from this group.[4] Its main competitor, the China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Industry (Group) Corporation was formed in 2002.[5]

"China CNR Corporation" carried out import and export orders between 1998 and 2005 through the LORIC Import & Export Corp., Ltd.[6] The subsidiary CNR Logistic Development Corp., Ltd., established in 1998 deals with export sales of CNR vehicles and parts.[7]

In 2008 the group was reorganised into the China North Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (or China CNR Corporation Limited)[4] with a minority shareholding contributed by China ChengTong Holdings Group and China Huarong Asset Management Corp.[3]

The company made an IPO of $2bn in 2009 on the Shanghai stock exchange.[8][9]

From the early 21st century onwards the group began a strategic diversification into wind turbine manufacture - its first major new facility was a 500 turbine per year capacity factory in Songyuan, (built 2009-11), established through CNR Wind Power Co.. The company expects to invest ~35billion Yuan in CNR Wind Power to establish a full scale wind power industry.[10][11]
