Giant Group is one of the few vertically integrated companies in the bicycle industry, with our one-stop-shop operation, R&D, mass production, and sales and service to end customers, allowing us to meet the needs of private brands and OE partners. Giant Group is currently facing challenges from within and outside the bicycle industry and intensifying competition, prompting our factories to enter a phase of transformation, optimization, and innovation, to be ready for smart manufacturing. In addition to adapting to brand new smart machinery, our factories have also fitted smart sensors to the more traditional machinery that we already have, converting them into "smart" machines able to conduct data sensing and information feedback. The degree of automation is then adjusted based on the nature and level of complexity of the task at hand. Moving with the times towards smart manufacturing is a must for industries. To help our factories become smart factories that are globally competitive, Giant Group continues to accumulate practical experience, attempting to strike a good balance between automation and manpower, and ensuring that our manufacturing processes can stay economical while maintaining excellent quality, precision, and flexibility.
