Changzhou, which is among the top 50 Chinese cities in terms of its comprehensive economic strength, has been characterized as an investment magnet due to its rich history, pleasant living environment, daily conveniences, respect for diverse customs, perennially congenial climate, solid industrial foundation, industrial diversity, good legal environment and government efficiency, and geographical advantages and low logistics costs.

Historically, Changzhou HaiJai Metallurgical Machinery Manufacturing Co. was a sub-plant of Baosteel Group, one of the most profitable steel enterprises in the world, with an annual production capacity of about 20 million tons. The main products of Changzhou HaiJai Metallurgical Machinery Manufacturing Co. include complete sets of metallurgical equipment and spare parts, electrical power equipment (including wind-driven generator boxes and large scale transformers), automotive parts, mechanical engineering parts, and large gearboxes.

Changzhou HaiJai Metallurgical Machinery Manufacturing Co.'s fabrication, machinery and assembly products are already distributed internationally to a select few significant foreign companies, and with its planned entry into the U.S. capital markets, the company is expected to expand distribution to additional worldwide markets. The company is also expanding internally with additional property and a new 200-ton heavy-duty steel structure workshop due to open later this month.

"The addition of a third new Redwood Capital client in as many months further validates the efforts we have undertaken over the past year to strengthen this subsidiary's infrastructure and internal capabilities," said S3 chairman and chief executive officer Jim Bickel. "By preparing Redwood Capital to handle a greater number of clients, we believe that it is now positioned to achieve long-term growth with greater return for S3 and its shareholders."
