Apart from pursuing sustainable operations, creating profit and benefiting employees are our responsibility. Therefore, we have established a factory in the county’s industrial park to create job opportunities for local residents. Under our leadership, KLB became the first and only lead acid battery manufacturer in Taiwan to list on the Taiwan Stock Exchange for employees to feel pride to becoming shareholders of the company. We also provide a work environment for employees to proudly contribute themselves to work. With suitable labor conditions and a safe and healthy work environment, we enable employees to feel care as a family and contentment for working with KLB.
To enthusiastically be involved with social charity and to serve people, we are eager to participate in comprehensive public groups, such as the Lion Club International; the Nantou County Friends of the Police Association; the Taiwan Lifeline International; Taiwan Battery Association; Taiwan Excellent Brand Association; Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association; Central, Eastern and CIS Association; Straits Economic and Cultural Interchange Association; SME Honorary Instructors’ Association; The Entrepreneur Club; CPMA Taichung; Nantou County Cross-Sector Exchange Association; Importers and Exporters Association of Nantou; and Taichung, Changhua and Nantou Workforce Development Strategic Alliance. With physical participation and a heart of social contribution, we actively promote industry-academia collaboration, resources exchange, and internship programs; and provide instruction, resources, and sponsorship covering industry overview and manufacturing technology, research and development, and internship opportunities to equip students and academic research institutions with knowledge relating to the industry status, market demand, and process technology through mutual exchange and learning between the industry and academia, in order for students to better understand the practice in the industry and thereby eliminate the gap between education and employment.
