International Market Development
Since Chinas access to the WTO, the company has paid more attention to how domestic products compete with foreign products and how to stand firmly during fierce market competition. We promote our core competitiveness from the aspects of multiple resources, grasping key technology and creating low cost to continuous develop new products and service, meeting customer requirements.
Attaching more importance to product technology innovation, it takes 6%-8% of annual sales revenue as fees for old product improvement and new product research and development. Through continuous efforts of all staff, it has made great achievement in product technology innovation. For example, the first domestic sinus endoscopes developed in 1995 won gold prize of Chinese Medical Association; sinus set equipment developed in 1998 won the second prize of provincial technological progress; the laparoscope set equipment developed in 2002 won the second prize of provincial technological progress. In addition, it has undertaken 5 national projects, 4 provincial projects, 7 city-level projects and above 10 county-level projects, receiving good remarks from all levels of departments. Especially, in the aspect of endoscope innovation, we have improved optical system design, further eliminating aberration and improving imaging definition and viewing angle scope; adopted new steering system to improve the luminous flux of endoscopes and image quality; adopted optical fiber wire with large bore diameter, light cone compression and pantoscope to increase observation scope; improved the formulation of scotch band and sealant and gluing technique and adopted hard blue diamond glass gluing and sealing technology, making the endoscopes able to endure 134℃ and 0.23Mpa high-pressure sterilization and improving its wear resistance, definition and service life; adopted moisture removing technology and clean assembly technique, solving the moisture and dust within the optical system and improving imaging definition; improved structure design, adopted precision machining technology and improved surface treatment techniques, promoting product appearance quality. Therefore, among the colleagues in China, “Fuao” endoscopes are leading. Although the prices are higher than that of the products of peers, the sales amount is higher.
