A Message from Dr. James Chen
President & CEO, Chairman of the Board and Founder
I started Mascon 30 years ago to help US and Asian businesses work together and to build a company based on service, quality results and lasting relationships. Now, I am proud to say that my vision has become reality.
Today, Mascon is a global company with fully staffed offices in Taipei, Taiwan; Beijing, Chengdu, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Shenyang and Guangzhou, China; and Hong Kong. We have a multinational, multilingual staff consisting mostly of electrical, mechanical and chemical engineers.
We have lasting relationships with many Fortune 500 customers , relationships built on trust, service and quality output, the core values underpinning all we do here at Mascon. This strong, unifying culture gives our customers confidence they will encounter the same standard of excellence in every project they bring us.
As I look at the growth over the past three decades, I am extremely proud of what we have achieved, and even more excited about our outlook for an equally promising future. I am most proud to know we are able to help our customers build the products that enable them to succeed in a demanding marketplace. We’ve done this by working collaboratively, being inventive and never compromising on quality. Our reward is the confidence of our partners. Our evidence is repeat business from satisfied customers.
All of us at Mascon are proud of our continued success as one of the most respected cross- border supply chain companies in the nation, and I share this accomplishment with the entire Mascon team who is responsible for consistently delivering results.
