In 1982, GS began contract manufacturing of silicone rubber component in Hsin-Chu City, Taiwan. During this time, GS established a branch in Southern California to assist and develop US business. GS also became ISO9002 to further develop and establish quality standards. They have since acquired QS9000 certification and are currently updating their quality certification to ISO / TS16949. The timeframe to become ISO / TS16949 is September 2004.

As continued effort to support their customer and maintain great quality standards, GS acquired QS9000 certification in 2000. They believe quality is the backbone of their business and the foundation of their success.
