Building on Reputation

“One of our most remarkable milestones is being listed on the main board in Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2007, where our effort and achievement in the industry were being highly regarded and recognised, and our exposure was spread broader and wider than before.
Today, we are transforming from being a traditional EMS manufacturer to a technology solution provider to secure a more profitable and sustainable future for the Company. We are positive and confident that our innovation will uplift everyday living to another level.”
He adds: “The year of 2018 was a memorable year. We were awarded the Smart Living Gold Award by the HKICT where our IoT application technology was widely recognised.”
“Customers demand more from their suppliers, and one of the main drivers is the time to market responsiveness.”
