Company Philosophy


Company Vision

Graphin Co., Ltd was incorporated in January 1993 in an aim to provide products that combine two different domains; the image processing technology of graphics and the information communication technology of interfaces. Interfaces will be in need for as long as electronic devices and computers will be in use, no matter how its shape or its method changes, as they are fundamental to computers and data transmission in an electronic circuit. Only ten years ago, it would have been difficult to imagine the high quality images that can be produced today as a result of the digitizing of image processing for television set, videos, photos, printing, computer graphics and more.
The digitizing of image processing allows products to be at low costs and high-speed. (For example, cable/digital TV broadcasting, DVD’s, digital cameras, various printer types, scanners, game devices, and more).
With our workers' fine skills, ambitious spirit, and teamwork, at Graphin Co., Ltd we shall continue to resolve the need for increasingly high-speed interfaces, quality graphics, and digitization to satisfy our customers forever diversifying demands.

Company Logo and its meaning

Graphin Co., Ltd's company logo represents the change of digital data in its precision, density, high-quality, high-speed, and ultimately the evolution toward a high-level digital information technology.
