FORTREND turnkey OGS touch panel production line helps transform Shandong
Press release [Friday 26 July 2013]
FORTREND Tech has conducted one successful OGS tech-transfer case involving a turnkey solution in Shandong, China. Shandong has been working very hard putting their resources in the 3C industries in recent years.
Not long ago, Shandong province was still mostly known for its natural and historical resources, such as Taishan, a mountain famous for its natural beauty and historical significance. There is the city of Qufu where the great Confucius was born more than 2,000 years ago. Sandong has long been a vegetables provider for the Chinese capital of Beijing. Along its major highway are a lot of other places of historical significance, such as Linzi, the capital of Chi 2,800 years ago, and Jimo, another important place in Chi. They are some of the places constantly mentioned in history textbooks for elementary school students.
But Shandong has changed. Sitting in between Korea, Japan and Shanghai, and boasting a large harbor in Qingdao, Shandong is seeing every one of its cities constructing high tech industrial parks. The province is eager to have a place in the IT industry.
Jinan, the capital city of Shandong, is showing a strong commitment to pursuing its goal of becoming an OGS touch panel supplier. It took its first step by searching for potential business partners in Taiwan, and finally chose FORTREND to be its tech partner and production facilities provider.
FORTREND custom-designed a complete OGS production line for Jinan. All the equipment was specially sourced from mainstream high-end manufacturers. The equipment was shipped in 60 40ft containers and arrived in Jinan safely in early June 2013. FORTREND sent a team of 80 engineers with another big team from equipment manufacturers to set up the production line in a newly built factory.The mission was completed in early July.
On July 11, a grand opening ceremony was held, with Chairman Mr John Wu of FORTREND welcoming all guests of honor at the factory site. Ranking officials of Shandong Province, representatives from the local electronics industries and guests from Japan and Korea attended the ceremony to witness the birth of a new member of the OGS touch panel supply chain.
This is also a faithful production partner of FORTREND, and the first automated OGS touch panel manufacturing plant in China, which is very meaningful to the local industry. It also attests to FORTREND's capability of providing its partners with turnkey solutions that cover facility design and equipment purchase. The Jinan plant is a successful case of tech transfer that promises a bright future for the city in the touch panel industry.
