Providing Total Solution - Taiwan Plastic and Rubber Machinery Industry

The global economic downturn has affected every industry, especially export-oriented Taiwan, where the plastic and rubber machinery industry has felt a considerable impact. The industry in Taiwan relies on nearly 40 years of skill and experience in R&D and production, which during the economic crisis, has helped it maintain a solid footing and continue to aggressively develop new markets abroad.

Taiwan's plastic and rubber machinery industry is mostly made up of small and medium sized businesses with limited scope, so they rely on upstream, midstream, and downstream cooperation to remain competitive with manufacturing in other countries. Unique to Taiwan's plastic and rubber machinery industry is its complete supply chain, with close coordination between main and satellite manufacturing sites. This allows the industry to produce machinery that is highly competitive both in terms of pricing and technology. These characteristics have made the small island of Taiwan the world's 5th largest manufacturer of plastic and rubber machinery.

The fiercely competitive global market has compelled Taiwan's suppliers to act quickly to differentiate their products’ value. Their response has been to gradually move toward offering total solution to customers, and they have made significant progress. This progressive response to customers also represents another unique characteristic of Taiwan's plastic and rubber machinery industry. Below are summaries of the strengths of the industry's turnkeycomprehensive plant and machinery services.

1. Skilled Professionals
Professional engineers along with a sales force equipped with sound technical knowledge have afforded Taiwan's suppliers a profound understanding of customer needs, from early stage design and build plans to full production. According to a customer's actual production needs and defined specifications, tailor-made solutions are then developed and brought to mass production with low cost and guaranteed quality. This process is successful in achieving production targets and creating new business opportunities for machinery and equipment.

2. Coordinated Suppliers
Multiple products must be considered when planning the equipment and machinery requirements for an entire facility. Plastics, moulds, machines and auxiliary equipment are all essential to the production line. Taiwan's geographical location also contributes to our rich industrial capacity. With over 30 year's experience in coordinating supplier operations, different customer specifications and technical requirements can be met. Fast response to customer adjustments and flexible production capabilities also exist to fulfill the needs of the market.

3. Outstanding After-Sales Service
In addition to having full facility planning capabilities, complete after-sales service programs are offered through a dedicated contact window, 24 hour technical assistance, and other services in line with global standards. While our customers are on the frontlines developing markets, we focus on delivering quality. Very few foreign suppliers are able to offer this kind of service. By offering lower costs to the customer while maintaining a safe and dependable service quality, customer satisfaction has increased significantly.

4. The Value of Experience
Taiwan's plastic and rubber machinery industry is 40 years in the making. Regardless of product type, raw material application, or plastic/rubber machinery role in production, the comprehension and experience of the industry gained over the years has given it the knowledge to assess and propose the optimal machinery and related auxiliary equipment, production control, and choice of raw materials. These professional assessments help customers maximize their profitability.

5. Dependable Trading Partners
Taiwan's industry has based its reputation as a trade partner on trust, and because of this, it has successfully established long-term customer relationships. The primary goal of Taiwan suppliers is to help their customers be profitable. Service and customer satisfaction are of the upmost importance—service even extends beyond the actual terms of a contract. Taiwan suppliers will work in good faith to resolving product issues in the spirit of cooperative partnership.
