Message from the President

Lin Qingchi (Chairman, right) and Kazuyuki Mineo (President, left)

SC Kingflex Corporation is a Taiwanese company established in 1979 and is celebrating its 42nd anniversary this year. We have produce and sell low and high-pressure rubber hoses, assembly parts and compound master batches. We became a member of the Yokohama Rubber Group as a joint venture with Yokohama Rubber in 1990 and currently operate two plants in Taiwan.
We have made safety and the environment an important pillar of our management, acquiring ISO 14001 certification in 2001 and ISO 45001 certification in 2020. As a member of the local community, we are actively engaged in activities to reduce our environmental impact while ensuring a safe working environment.
As specific activities, in production we have promoted to increase the number of times that the mandrels and vulcanization coating materials (molds) required essential for the production of hoses are recycled. Furthermore, we have increased energy efficiency by improving equipment.
In addition, we base our business operations on "safety," "environment," and "quality," and by acquiring and operating management system certifications in these three areas, we are able to provide earth-friendly products that ensure safety and security for our customers.
We will demonstrate "Caring for the Future", the CSR slogan of Yokohama Rubber's new medium-term management plan YX2023, in our business activities. And we will strive to operate our business in a way that will be recognized by everyone.

In order to maintain and improve the quality of our products, we set quality targets every year and distribute cards to all employees to raise their awareness.

In 2022, we planted trees for the fifth time at the Zhongli Plant as part of the " Forever Forest" activities.
