Founded in 1946 as Guxian Iron Factory, Shougang Changzhi Steel & Iron Co., Ltd. (“Changzhi Steel & Iron”) was the first iron and steel enterprise to be built by the Communist Party of China at Taihang Mountain Revolution Base. When Prime Minister Zhou Enlai inspected Shanxi in 1956, he said, "Guxian Iron Factory is the first factory officially built by our party at the base, and it was built industriously and thriftily through self-reliance." In 2009, it was jointly reorganized with the Shougang Group.
