COMPANY PRESIDENT MESSAGE: URBAN INFRASTRUCTURE & ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCTS (UIEP) COMPANY

  • Through plastic piping materials, we are contributing to the creation of social infrastructure that is friendly to the global environment.

    To date, semiconductor plants' ultrapure water lines have mainly employed stainless steel piping materials. However, in Japan we have developed an alternative product using our mainstay clean piping material to achieve light weight and simple construction. Companies in Southeast Asia (China, South Korea and Taiwan) are currently making aggressive capital investments in semiconductor and LCD plants. Our materials are produced in Taiwan, which is convenient, and are being used by numerous customers. Notably, our ESLON valves have the high product quality and product lineup required of Japanese factories and semiconductor and LCD plants. They are the only such product in Taiwan to have NSF certification. Their high quality level means that they can be used with peace of mind and have earned the products a strong reputation.
    We also manufacture and sell our own Mefco brand of valves, which are broadly used with industrial wastewater and waste fluids, as well as in such fields as aquaculture and agriculture.

As Taiwan is a small island nation, its awareness is particularly high with regard to societal issues such as global warming and energy conservation, as well as problems with water resources. As a result, the country has set high regulations on the percentage of waste water recycling and reuse. We expect plastic piping, which is highly resistant to deterioration over time, to find use in various government-directed projects that are underway, including the construction of reclaimed water treatment plants at industrial parks, the erection of rainwater storage systems and seawater desalination.

From the perspective of waste reduction, plastic piping is more environmentally friendly than metal piping as it is more lightweight and longer lasting. Also, less CO2 is emitted in the production of plastic piping. We manufacture around 5,500 tons of such piping annually, contributing to a reduction of 4.2 x 105 tons of CO2. This equates to the amount of CO2 absorbed over the course of one year by some 300,000 pine trees.

Products such as LCD TVs and smartphones make our lives more convenient, and our products are in the background, assisting in their manufacture. For this reason, I consider continuing to respond to high quality demands to be our company's mission.
