Established on July 1, 1975, Inventec
Corporation began its operation as a simple manufacturer of
calculators. Until now, over 24 years has passed and we have
developed into a large environmentally friendly enterprise with
ISO certifications. Inventec Corporation is supported by the
work force of over 4,000 dedicated employees who represent the
core of a Group that manufacturers many products. Inventec's
initial stage of establishment gave priority to manufacturing
calculators and by 1984 we were Taiwan's largest manufacturer
of calculators. Then we began to make more efforts on producing
telephones. Two years later our results were outstanding, leading
the telephone export market after only a short period of time.
In 1988, Inventec once more brought into play its highly concentrated
Group technology and competitive advantages, investing in research,
production and logistics support for notebook PCs; and research,
production and sales for our electronic dictionary software.
Ten years have now passed and Inventec's only self-marketed
consumer product company, Besta, has become a market leader.
Also, Inventec is now one of Taiwan's three largest producers
of notebook PCs. Our products have brought us rapid increased
sales growth helping to transform a small company with little
revenue into one with revenue in excess of NT$46 billion.
Inventec Corporation also represents the
Inventec Group's nucleus, not only responsible for handling
group product sales and company policies, but also for leading
the Mainland China Group software development plans. In addition,
Inventec is the researcher, developer and designer, representing
the pillar of our Inventec Group business structure.
In 1997, in line with our global logistics
policy, Inventec established factories in Houston and Scotland
to conduct final configuration and after-sales service for
PC-related products in the North American and European markets.
In September of 1998, Inventec acquired Tao-factory, which
designs and manufactures servers, workstations and desktop
PCs. The factory's existing 400 employees are now helping
Inventec establish these new product lines.
Looking into the future we will not only
maintain current quality control, research and development,
and information management standard, we will more than ever,
push for value-added engineering to increase our competitive
advantage and overall value thus transforming Inventec Corporation
into a benchmark company of the 21st century.
