PCB (Printed circuit board) refers to a board on which complex copper circuit wires connecting different components are etched after careful planning. As the main carrier for electronic components during installation and interconnection, PCB is an indispensable basic part of all electronic products and is also known as the “mother of the electronics industry.” In the PCB industry, the upstream sector includes suppliers of materials such as fiber glass, copper foil, and resin, whereas the midstream sector consists of copper foil substrate and PCB manufacturers, and the downstream sector comprises the suppliers of various electronic products.
Notebook computers, mobile phones, smart homes, TFT-LCD monitors, hard disk drives, servers, memory modules, automobiles, etc.
The Future of PCB:
PCB manufacturing is an integrated industry that combines optics, electrology, chemistry, mechanical, material, and management sciences. Almost all electronic devices require the support of PCB. Therefore, PCB is the product with the highest market share among electronic components and products in the world. In the future, PCB will move toward the trends of high performance (mobile telecommunications), high density (functional integration), high reliability (eco-friendly and heat-dissipating), and reduced volume and/or area. With the continued evolution and development of electronic products, the PCB technology and application will continue to play a key role in smart living in the future.
Tripod Technology Corporation’s Pingjhen Plant in Taoyuan officially began mass production in 1998, primarily engaging in the production and R&D of PCB. After more than 10 years, Tripod has established production bases in Pingjhen, Taiwan, Wuxi, Jiangsu, and Xiantao, Hubei. The Company has customers from China, Europe, the Americas, Southeast Asia, etc. and has established over 20 service points around the world.
Tripod is committed to developing into a global PCB R&D and manufacturing center. In 2017, Tripod ranked 6th in the list of global PCB manufacturers by production value and ranked 2nd in the list of PCB manufacturers in China’s PCB industry. Tripod commits to the continued R&D of new process capabilities as well as investments into advanced machinery and equipment to meet different customer needs.
Tripod has over 20,000 employees in Pingjhen, Taiwan, Wuxi, Jiangsu, and Xiantao, Hubei, with the ratio of male and female employees maintaining an approximate of 2:1 throughout the year. The Company vigorously develops and promotes local employees and excellent graduates and provides greater room for development as well as fair and transparent channels for promotions.
Localization of employees:
Plant managers at Wuxi and Hubei plants are all of Chinese nationality. They worked from the bottom up, gradually developing into becoming the pillars of the Group.
Excellent graduate representatives:
As the Company pays great attention to talent development, the Company has established a complete talent development mechanism, which helps to build a self-development platform for excellent graduates, enhancing work qualities, exploring career development channels, and perfecting personal career development plans.
