Engine manufacturing is a technology-intensive, capital-intensive and highly talent-intensive industry, as well as an important index to measure the technical capability of a certain country. The government has been dedicated to the promotion and development of domestic automobile Industry, and has successfully provided assistance to domestic car manufacturers in their establishment of independent capability in research and development of car body and chassis. To further ensure enhancement of domestic car Industry, the government has integrated domestic resources of car manufacturers by means of a project to share the use of engines, developed domestic car engine key technology and set up CEC. Under joint efforts of the government, the Industrial Research Institute, leading domestic car manufacturers and CEC, we have successfully given birth to the first car engine completely developed and produced by domestic manufacturers in 1998.
The goal of founding CEC is to develop an independent car drive system, set up a technological platform for technical modulation of car driving system, provide support to domestic car manufacturers in their capability to develop the entire car, and to develop international markets. The process of realizing this goal was described by Chairman of Board, Miss Wu Shun-Wen, who indicated in 1996 at the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of the new plant: “By implementing the project of shared use of engines, the government has planted the seed for the development of engine manufacturing industry in Taiwan. The mission of CEC is to continue to nurture this seed so that it may root, bud, grow and prosper.”
To enable budding, growth and prosperity of the engine Industry, all colleagues of CEC have jointly set “contribution of all colleagues’ wisdom, and quest for environmentally friendly driving system” as the common prospect of our company. Using existing products as a basis, we shall introduce the concept of engine series and engine modulation, to continue research and development of “highly efficient, low pollution, modulated, and multiple-drive engines” and “drive system control”, and such key technology and products as our direction of development, to make Taiwan the third country equipped with engine manufacturing capability in Asia.
Besides working as strategic partners in the development of domestic car manufacturers, CEC has worked in close cooperation with the central-satellite system of domestic car manufacturing Industry, thereby leading the associate systems in the promotion and joint enhancement of new R&D technology, and upgrade the productivity of our car industry, so that Taiwanese car Industry has become a globally competitive industry.
In face of the total global sales amounting to more than 50 million cars per year, and about 2.5 million cars in Taiwan, China and Southeastern Asian countries, we shall take good advantage of this business opportunity to work closely with car manufacturers and associate systems, to build a production line for 250cc~2200cc engines for sale on international markets.
