Tex Year application division is concentrate to develop the equipment of heating. In the beginning, we develop the product about binding application like glue guns and hot melting adhesive machine. We want to offer our clients total solution about binding. Then we expand the business field to office product – laminator. The result to focus on design make us becomes the famous laminator OEM Company in Taiwan. But the paperless revolution makes the laminator market shrink in these few years. Thus, we reallocate our business resource in medical device in 2010. After lots of information collection and discussion inside, autoclave become our new product in this new filed. We got the ISO 13485 and CE mark after we construct the RD team. Focus on consumer needs is our core value to realize the new sterilization cycle. In the future, we will combine the new sterilization technology to develop all series products.
