"China Shipbuilding Corp. (CSBC)" was established in 1973 and reverted to a government-owned company in 1977. One year later "CSBS" merged with "China Shipbuilding Corp., Taiwan (TSBC)" resulting in the formation of "CSBS" as known today and shipyards were established in Kaohsiung and Keelung, along with an office in Taipei. In 2007 its name was changed to "CSBC, Taiwan", and in December 2007 the company was privatized, becoming a free and competitive enterprise. In 2004 the first phase of the "Enterprise Privatization File Investigation and Collection Plan" was carried out. As a result the files of CSBC were evaluated to be included into the national archives and a total of 6 on-the-spot investigations were carried out. These files date back several years and reflect a complete picture of the development of enterprise structures. The materials that were included in the national archives consist of all files of the Keelung shipyard from 1946 to 1973, and from the Kaohsiung Shipyard from 1973 to 1978. Regarding the files from Keelung after 1973 and from Kaohsiung after 1978, important events from areas like business, R&D, personnel training, production and technology were included. After the completion of the file transfer to the national archives in October and November 2009, the number of files counted 3,546.


CSBC archives that were transferred to the NAA include archives of constitution of the company, accounting reports, budgets and annual reports, meeting information, mid and long term projects, performance evaluation, research and development projects, various reports, shipbuilding financing and business documents archives dated between 1948 and 2000, total length of archives was measured at 240.58 meters.
