Continual improvement of the SCM mechanism

With quality, ability and environmental policy as conditions, we perform corporate social responsibility in collaboration with outperforming suppliers on a long-term basis. We also communicate with contractors and transporters our environmental policy, comply with the EU’s RoHS directive, reinforce environmental education and training, and care about the safety of contractors working in our plant, in order to ensure the safety of all operations, protect the life, safety and health of personnel, and optimize risk management with contractors and transporters together.

Management of raw materials suppliers

We establish long-term strategic partnership with raw materials suppliers and determine the safety stock based on materials preparation lead-time to ensure supply chain fluency. To encourage suppliers to make continual improvement, so that we can receive quality raw materials and services at the right time, in the right quantity, and at the right price, we constantly increase supply sources and evaluate suppliers biannually.

We select qualified suppliers of raw materials and OEM products based on one of or a combination of the following:

 Suppliers with credibility or a good reputation at home and abroad.

 Suppliers certified by international systems, such as ISO 9001.

 Suppliers designated by technology suppliers.

 Suppliers with a good quality or delivery record.
