“Shanghai Construction History

The company underwent fast paced growth when in the early 1990s the home city of Shanghai was finally allowed to join in the reform and growth sweeping China. The city became a “builder’s dream” and SCG benefited from the pent up zeal for projects with revenue climbing up 30% annually. As the hometown builder, SCG is responsible for many of the landmarks of Shanghai including the under construction Shanghai Tower.

Moving beyond Shanghai, SCG has taken overseas projects including through an international focused subsidiary, Shanghai (Group) Corporation for Foreign Economic & Technological Cooperation (SEFCO Group).

The company’s construction of a five star hotel in Cairo despite local political instability was cited by the New York Times in 2012 as an example of the endurance Chinese companies had in their bid to establish operations in Egypt.

Outside of the core business, SEFCO is diversified in activities like mining. The subsidiary acquired a 60% share in an Eritrean gold mine at the end of 2011.”
