MEAN WELL was established in 1982, with an
initial capital of NT$1,000,000, in a small factory just 100
meters square. It has been a long and winding road, as the
company has transformed itself from a manufacturer of linear
power supplies to switching power supplies, and changed its
emphasis from power supplies for personal computer to those
for industrial purposes. Today we have become a company, which
establishes, designs and produces standard power supplies
under our own brand name. We recognize that in our success we
are greatly indebted to the support of our suppliers,
distributors and end users.
People often ask me what is the secret of Mean
Well's phenomenal growth rate? In my personalopinion, I believe we are not a
very special company, merely a company that insists on long-term cooperation
and is very careful to be rational and reliable in all the decisions it makes.
It is thisphilosophy that is at the center of our ability to grow so steadily.
We are not a company with
outstanding workers, but a company that emphasizes a
group of sincere, practical, hard working, and united
partners. Most of our engineers join MEAN WELL
directly after graduating from university; the others
have worked in associated fields before joining our
company. Together they make up our powerful group of
research engineers. Most of our engineers, once
immersed in our culture, can find no reason to leave.
We believe that our exceptionally low turnover of
staff has proved fundamental in our ability to always
push forward the boundaries of our
MEAN WELL has no one product that
eclipses all others in sales, instead we feel we have
a very wide and well-balanced range of products. Each
product is the result of our engineers committed
approach to superior design, and our production
department's dedication to superior quality. We are a
company that is committed to finding the best possible
solution to the price-quality equation, and every year
we work diligently to increase quality and output
while also reducing price.
If you are a new supplier, even
though in these initial stages of our relationship,
our volume of trade may not be high, we hope you
understand that MEAN WELL sincerely believes that we
are at the beginning of a long and fruitful
relationship. We emphasize long-term partnerships,
with goals of high quality and accurate delivery
dates, alongside the reasonable sharing of profits.
Most of our suppliers have been working closely
together with us for many years.
are a new customer, we hope that you can come to
understand the sincerity consider our mutual welfares
in every deal. We often recommend beginning with a
smaller short-term order, and then gradually
increasing the order quantity. In the long term we
believe we will come to understand and approve of our
approach to new customers, which at its heart has the
goal of allowing us to slowly build up the mutual
understanding essential to long term business
relationships. We emphasize long-term partnerships,
65% of our sales comes from companies with whom we
have had a business relationship for more than 10
If the CPU is the brain of
a system, the power supply is it's heart, and often the value
of losses incurred in a single failure can exceed the value of
the power supply itself. We firmly believe that the power
supply industry is one built on trust. The mission of any
power supply company should be to engender the utmost
confidence in both the technology and quality of its products.
Only by always striving to improve and innovate, creating the
optimum Product, Quality, Cost, Delivery Time, Service and
Relationship (PQCDSR) that stand test of time, can a company
be truly trusted by its customers. We believe trust is another
essential prerequisite to long-term operation.
My thanks to my customers,
workers, and suppliers for all your support, allowing us to
create this continuous culture of reliability. Also I would
like to give my heartfelt welcome to any new members of our
MEAN WELL circle. I wholeheartedly hope that we can become
your permanent reliable power partner.
