CHARLES C. S. SUN
Founder & CEO
Mr. Charles Sun is the founder of XFS. He is a 30-year fiber optic industry veteran. He has more than 20 years of experience in fiber cable, patchcord and pigtail manufacturing. In the early 80s, Mr. Sun led Taiwan’s first engineering team to transfer fiber optic technology from Nokia and built Taiwan’s first fiber cable production line. In the early 90s, he was among the first wave of ventures transferring fiber optic manufacturing know-how from Taiwan to China. He later established ETD Enterprise Ltd. in 1994 and grew the company to become China’s largest patchcord/pigtail vendor in the early 00s. The company was acquired by Amphenol Corporation (NYSE: APH) in 2006.
Mr. Sun holds more than 20 patents in the fiber optic field and has a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering from National Ocean University in Taiwan.
DR. HEN TAI SHANG
Dr. Hen Tai Shang is a pioneering figure in Taiwan’s fiber optic industry. After spending 11 years as a scientist on the development of what was then the world’s most advanced fiber optic technology at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Crawford HillNJ and Norcross GA, USA, Dr. Shang returned to Taiwan and founded POFC (TSE: 2496) in 1991. It was the first optical fiber company in the country. He led the company to an IPO in 2002. Dr. Shang also served as the founding chairman of Taiwan’s OptoComm Forum and the technical advisor to Chunghwa Telecom.
Dr. Shang holds a PhD degree in physics from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in the USA. He has over 40 publications and more than 10 international patents in the fiber optic field.
