TECO Corp. was founded in 1956 and the company’s operations currently span over 40 countries and 100 cities in 5 continents. The company initially focused on the manufacture and sale of motors and has gradually diversified into various fields spanning heavy machinery, home appliances, IT, communications and engineering. As of 2008, TECO has gradually become aware of the environmental burden generated by industrial development. The company has therefore embraced the corporate vision of "TECO GO ECO" and has been firmly committed to the development of green energy technologies ever since. TECO continues to develop energy-saving systems including highly efficient motor products and inverters. By tapping its outstanding capabilities in the field of electromechanical integration and through the development of visionary green energy technologies, the company has turned into the first manufacturer of motors specifically designed for electric vehicles (EVs). At the same time, TECO’s independent development and production of wind turbine products has catapulted Taiwan to the rank of the 8th largest manufacturer of large-scale wind turbines in the world.
The Company has made strides in the field of smart green products by integrating communication and IT technologies of the subsidiaries within the group, as well as by relying on TECO’s existing green energy products and energy-efficient home appliances in response to the rapid developments in IoT driven by the popularization of smartphones and wireless networks, which in turn enhanced data analysis and transmission capabilities. In 2017, TECO aims to materialize the philosophy of Industry 4.0 (Energy Conservation, Emissions Reduction, Intelligence, Automation) to achieve greater efficiency in energy use, and initiate a smart revolution within the traditional industries through the integration and application of innovative new technologies.
