Kuo Chuan Precision has been at the forefront of one-stop research and development since its inception in 1985. Founded by Tseng-Kuo Yu, the company began modestly with only a few employees, primarily focusing on mold-making and spare parts creation.

Kuo Chuan, often recognized as KC, has evolved over the decades from a small team of 25 people breaking into the auto parts market in Southeast Asia, to a significant industry player with three core market segments: aftermarket, OEM, and ODM. Today, they employ a dedicated workforce of 200.

The company’s market approach is rooted in three pillars: Quality, Service, and Branding. Their commitment to their partners – be it importers, distributors, or private label program customers – is unwavering. They specialize in a range of parts, including window regulators, door latches, hinges, handles, and more, particularly for pickup trucks.

Ensuring the highest quality of their parts is paramount. Kuo Chuan holds notable certifications, including IATF16949 and ISO9001. Their testing capabilities, especially for aftermarket parts, are stringent. Using real-world simulations, such as lifetime tests with actual used doors for window regulators, they ensure the durability and functionality of their products.

Beyond the production line, Kuo Chuan’s research and development are robust. With a database of 6,500 SKUs and a streamlined R&D process, they can swiftly bring new developments to the market in just 60 to 75 days.

However, it’s not just their quality parts and services that stand out. The company has been recognized with Corporate Social Responsibility awards for its initiatives, such as educational donations, aiding farms, and introducing solar power into their operations. In 2020, they further demonstrated their commitment to sustainability by installing a solar system on their facility’s roof.
