We took advantage of EDB's incentive schemes to upgrade and automate our machinery. We also participated in PSB's various programs to improve our production and management systems.
Our efforts paid off when we were awarded SISIR's Ceritificate of Good Manufacturing Practice Award for the ISO9003 Certification for quality assurance through final inspection and testing of products in 1989, and subsequently obtained the ISO9002 Certification for the achievement of quality assurance through in process control in 1990.
