|Chairman Eric Huang initiated AFS with forging partners in October of 1997. He started his business as being a professional forging supplier to provide one-stop shopping service.
There were only three employees at first and the company was located in Songde Road. One year later, AFS moved to another apartment in Chongcing South Rd. The staff increased to 30 people at this moment. Eric declared buying his own office once AFS moved to the second location with the confidence from God. After five years (2003), AFS purchased its first own office in Taipei Silicon Valley building in Shindian City of Taipei county for a area of 450 tsubo.
Meanwhile, AFS opened its first branch in Taichung in 2001 to catch up with the growth of business. Now, our Taichung branch office has more than 20 people and is located in the 18F, No.239 in Ming-Chuang Road in Taichung.
As the growth of our company, Eric started with his our business without taking any customer from his previous employer. Eric started his first business with TRW Malaysia and then one aftermarket customer in Mexico, CCT for transmission in US. Today, our customers spread all of in five continents for both OEM and AM business.
On the other hand, AFS started by representing Taiwanese factories in US. For example, we successfully captured the order from General Motors for their first aluminum wheel sourced in Asia. The first shift fork ArvinMeritor sourced in Taiwan was also achieved with the help of AFS.
