Do we know if any of the state owned corporations are actually behind the rocket design? I have been following discussions on the Chinese forums about this start-up for some time and based on the scant info available I have much doubts that they can fly anytime soon......unless, they are actually a front end company providing services on behalf of someone else.

Any ideas?

According to ChinaSpaceflight, OneSpace will develop some new rocket's configurations with strap-on boosters. Interesting, the diameter of the rockets is 1.2 meters.
PS: All of them are solid rockets

I don't think it is a front company, currently they can buy some 2.2m motors from some state owned corporations, But it does not always work, we knew these motors derived from DF-31 ICBM.
Above are my personal views.
But, I heard they are facing some problems with that

They have conducted several testings of fairing separation and stage separations

Chinese commercial rocket company OneSpace set for debut launch in June
by Andrew Jones Jan 17, 2018

One of China's emerging commercial launch vehicle companies has its sights on June for the first launch of its new rocket series, which could mark a huge step towards the goal of providing a range of low-cost launch services.

OneSpace has said it expects to launch its first OS-X1 rocket, designed for suborbital flights to provide high-altitude research and test services, in June following successful tests of its solid-propellant engine last month.
