Letter from the Chairman
One of the common misconceptions about the manufacturing business is that success is measured in the number of products that are created each year. In fact, the true essence of our success is not about quantity. It is actually the ability to address our customer's needs as well as to evolve and grow in sync with them.
Since Early Light Industrial Co. Ltd. was founded in 1972, we have helped bring ideas to life by manufacturing a variety of toys and consumer products for customers around the world. As we understand that "our customers' success is our success," we have dedicated ourselves to better serving our customers with innovative products, on-time deliveries and competitive pricing.
The past few years have been very exciting for us. Everyone at Early Light has worked hard to face a wide range of new challenges, such as the development of high technology toys and the rapid expansion of the enterprise. With the help of our sophisticated management team and our determined staff, we were successful in overcoming all these hurdles. For this, I would like to once again thank each of our employees for their passion and dedication to the company.
However, even though we have been very successful, we should not confine ourselves to pride over our past achievements. The desire for better products grows stronger each day, and we should always seek greater challenges and breakthroughs to reach for. I am confident that with our determination and expertise, Early Light Industries Co. Ltd. will continue to grow as we strive to become the worldwide leader in manufacturing toys and consumer products.
