ABIT Factory Tour in Suzhou - Introduction
We all arrived at the Rolly Technology factory in an industrial work area called Suzhou which is located about an hour west of the centre of Shanghai. The first question which probably springs to mind is, "Why does ABIT use someone else's factory?"
ABIT actually own Rolly Technology. Rolly is a Chinese company with the blessings of the local government to conduct this type of business inside their country. As a Taiwanese based company, ABIT can only invest a small percentage of their capital into business ventures inside China, as explained to us by employees of ABIT; hence, the Chinese based Rolly Technology was born to facilitate ABIT's intended production line inside mainland China since the beginning of 1999.
After passing through the entrance we were given a short introduction by members of ABIT staff. We suited up into our classic baker's uniforms and the tour started.
