Since its establishment, FROCH focuses on the improvement of manufacturing technologies. It believes Pursuing the Excellence and Creating the Future as the fundamental motivation for all developments.
In the aspect of product development, FROCH leads among other competitors to develop high-value-added products. Especially in 1997, in order to develop large diameter and thick wall pipe for high-pressure application, the company integrates many specialists from several countries to develop SAW welding. Moreover, to achieve the qualified inspection standard for high-pressure applications, the company obtains Radiographic Examination facility.
In the aspect of product range, FROCH provides the most complete product line which can satisfy the various needs from the customers. The material types include ASTM 304, 304L, 316, and 316L, and the size range starts from 1/4 inch to 80 inch. FROCH has become the customers' preferred supplier based on providing full product range.
In the aspect of sales network, FROCH is the No. 1 on both domestic and export sales. There are more than 2,000 customers in Taiwan and more than 50 countries for export. The marketing strategy of diversifying markets and customers helps FROCH not being affected severely by one single industry and/or one single market. The top 10 large customers only attain less than 10% of the sales revenue, and this demonstrates the success of diversifying markets and stability of sales channels.
