On October 2nd, The Swedish Chamber of Commerce arranged a company visit at SHL Group in Taoyuan. CITO, together with students from Linköpings University got the opportunity to take part in the visit and get an insight in the company’s business. SHL Group, established in 1989 by Swedish Roger Samuelsson, is a world leading solution provider of advanced drug delivery systems. The company consists of four group companies: SHL Medical, SHL Healthcare, SHL Technologies and SHL Pharma, which together design, develop and manufacture devices such as auto and pen injectors to equipment for home and hospital use care. The visit at the Taoyuan office was primarily led by Ulrich Faessler, who are a Managing Director and has worked for the company for more than ten years.
Ulrich, together with other employees at SHL Group, presented and introduced the company by explaining the company operations, the steps from idea to product, and how they work with and include the company’s core values in their everyday work. Ulrich was open for a lot of questions throughout the whole visit, letting the students ask questions that came up during the presentation. Furthermore, he described how the they work together with the U.S. and European based business of the company, the company’s goal to automate as much as possible of the production in Taoyuan, and the company’s customization of orders.
The visit also included a factory tour, letting the students take part in the manufacture of the company’s products. The tour took the students through the molding and tooling department of the manufacturing, giving a good insight in how products are created through processes as injection molding and detailed, manual processing of material.
CITO would like to thank Swedish Chamber of Commerce and SHL Group for an interesting and enriching visit.
