From 1951 the company was named Chinese: 济南机车车辆修理工厂; literally: "Jinan rolling stock repair factory", and after 1958 Chinese: 铁道部济南机车工厂; literally: "Ministry of Railways Jinan Locomotive Works".[2] The company operated mainly as a maintainer of steam locomotives.[4] and also manufactured steam locomotives, including 117 YJ class and a small number of SY class.[5][6]

In 1993 the company re-focused on manufacturing railway freight wagons,[1][4] and was renamed Chinese: 济南机车车辆厂; literally: "Jinan locomotive and rolling stock works".[2] At the beginning of the 21st century began to diversified into other areas, including steel structure manufacture.[1]

CNR Wind Turbine Co., Ltd was established in Jinan with a capital of 100 million Yuan to design and manufacture wind turbines. CNR foresees a total investment of 3 billion Yuan to establish a facility with production capacity of 1000 wind turbines per year.[8][9] On 4 September 2009 construction of a factory with a 500 turbine per year capacity began in Songyuan, Jilin province. The plant was fully complete by May 2011.[10][11][12]

The company's first installed product was a 1.5MW turbine, used at the Shandong Dongying wind project from mid-2010,[13][14] The first company's first 2MW turbine was manufactured in 2012.[15]
