What Do We Learn In Taiwan Trade Competition?


After finishing Alibaba Top Ten E-Commerce competition, Ms.Angel received an email from Taiwan Trade about coming e-commerce competition. She felt that She should enhance e-commerce team as well while attending the competition. This would be in her favor of developing and running the e-commerce market.


March 31st was the seminar and student group selections for the Taiwan Trade competition. We had to pair up with student teams from schools who also attended. Coincidentally, fate had arranged us to encounter my neighbor’s son at the same interview room. They weren’t part of our original scheduled teams to interview, but we decided to give them a try. What we discovered were a team of students with passion and ambition. Me being a passionate and positive person, she knew she had to choose them to become partners for this competition.

In the beginning She required that the students had to attend educational training at company. The key in educating them is to know Syncmen and the products which is essential to creating better progress during the competition. She also planned each student’ work schedule and details to each task.

She had even more ideals for producing our company video. She hopes to use innovative and creative ways to introduce not only products, but also our staff. The students took a trip to my factory just to create the ideal video. It made her very happy. The results not only met her expectations, but surely exceeded them.
As working with students was a first for us, we had to learn how to lead and plan their progress. Requiring them to upload products, adjust EDM, write blogs, and produce videos. All of these created new experiences for us, creating new sparks through our discussions together.


Learning- Planning- Producing- Progressing- Correcting- Finishing
They became our tempo for our cooperation during this contest. And it is during this process, she discovered two factors that contribute to a great working team. First is being the company playing their role in educating and supporting the students to help them finish their assigned task. The other being the students will and contribution in devoting themselves to the competition, both being inseparable. We are glad to team up with a group of enthusiastic and passionate students. It is because of their attitude towards learning and working together with us that we were able to enter the finals.

We hope that following our tempo and our actions working towards the highest possible standards, we are able to achieve our goals of finishing top three in the competition

The International B2B Certificate of DUNS® RegisteredTM

Syncmen is certified in DUNS® Registered TM which provides international companies with exclusive global identities. After receiving information collection and auditing by D&B, the company was awarded the DUNS Number® by Deng Bai. The 9-digit global coding system created by Shiji was built on Dun & Bradstreet's global corporate database and installed with the accredited Dun & Bradstreet Corporate CertificationTM logo.



Under the globalization of economic transactions, the unique global coding system of DUNS Number® (Data Universal Numbering System) is widely used in corporate identity and business information, and it can quickly identify the global information of over 250 million companies’ identity.


As an internationally recognized and commonly used company identification symbol for e-commerce, the world's most influential regulatory body, International Standards Organization (ISO), more than 50 global industry and trade organizations recommendations or requests using the D&B Global Coding system. If the world's top technology company, Apple Inc., stipulates that an IOS Developer Program must be applied for, the developed App can be uploaded to the App Store. The first step of applying for an iOS developer account requires Deng to provide White's Global Code.



The important role of entering the global supply chain

Most Fortune 500 companies also embed D&B Global Codes into their internal operating systems and processes through various means to manage the information of their business or supplier partners. Examples of major global brands require their suppliers to register on the BOM Check website to manage a large bill of materials. D2un & Bradstreet Global Codes must be provided when applying for BOM Check; Walmart, the world's largest retailer, also requires more than 20,000 supplies. The company provides this code to evaluate its products and services to ensure compliance with environmental regulations in order to develop a global supply chain market with a green supply chain. D&B Global is an important player in the global supply chain specification.

The International B2B Certificate of TÜV Rheinland

Syncmen also has TÜV Rheinland certification. Consumers require quality instruction guide. Consumers particularly trust the evaluation content proposed by neutral third parties such as TÜV Germany. For decades, TÜV Rheinland's test mark has been widely trusted by the market.

In the future, we will launch a clearer test mark and combine our Certipedia online certificate database to record our testing services.

Strict test mark usage specification
In the future, test signs used in consumer product advertisements must be accompanied by reference information.  The reference information must briefly describe the testing items and standards that have been performed so that consumers can clearly grasp the relevant content.

We have established reference sources and published test content on Certipedia, an online certificate database that can be accessed and used at any time to provide test abstracts.
A trusted database system that presents detection results from around the world in a safe and reliable manner.
After completion of the development, Certipedia's scale will increase and become more efficient.

We guarantee information transparency and clarity
Since January 1st, 2016, TÜV Rheinland has not issued the test ID of Universal ID for most certificates. The universal test flag ID provides only a basic introduction to the test results.
As a whole, we only provide exclusive IDs in the future.
These IDs allow consumers to more accurately grasp test content and certificate information.


A single "chi" to enhance its advantages - now we are committed to making it better
TÜV Rheinland's test mark – a unique "ambition" forever.

It represents safety and quality and has been effectively promoted and adopted in the industry. Consumers have long regarded it as a valuable reference guide.

However, legal norms and consumers have higher requirements. This is the reason why we update the system. With successful test marks and online certificate databases, we provide more advantages than ever before.

We have strengthened two decisive functions for the test mark:
Update 1, Optimize Certipedia Certificate Database

Give consumers a better understanding of the test content and abstracts. All display content can be customized, such as displaying your company's trademark, and other consumer-related information, can also be used on your company's official website.
Update 2. Create a unique ID number

Allow consumers to obtain clear and complete testing content and test summary information directly. TÜV Rheinland creates significant advantages for manufacturers, retailers and consumers.

TÜV Rheinland has created a more consumer-oriented and less error-prone reporting method. More transparent information can bring substantial benefits to manufacturers, retailers and consumers.
Innovative test marks are matched with Certipedia, a widely recognized online certificate database that consumers can use anytime, anywhere.
The revised German Rhein TÜV test mark will be paired with a dedicated ID number.
A clear and complete test summary is presented on the www.certipedia.com website.

About the court's strict decision on the use of test marks

Recently, in a ruling of the Higher Regional Court of Dusseldorf, Germany, it was determined that the incomplete information on the test mark was a misleading advertisement copy. Therefore, there is an urgent need to redesign test marks that meet the new regulations and take enforcement actions.

In the future, test marks used in consumer product advertising must include relevant reference information without exception. The reference information must include brief test items and introduction of test standards, so that consumers can clearly grasp the relevant content.



The German Federal Supreme Court is expected to make a final decision on this in 2016.

Paper Bag Forming Machines


The paper bag forming machines are divided into two ways of continuity printing, one being offset printing, and the other being flexo printing. Offset printing uses flat paper to print and pouch, and with most bags using thicker paper (84 gsm ~350 gm) flexo printing uses rolls of paper to print and pouch, and mostly using much thinner paper(60 gsm ~125 gsm)


In this article, we focus on introducing the offset printing machines. It is divided into automatic and semi-automatic machines. Automatic certainly means that the whole process is controlled by the machine itself. While on the other hand, semi-auto means that it only does half of the job, which is forming the main bag by itself. Semi-auto machines are used mainly for soft-roped handles paper bags. 

With hundreds of sizes for paper bags on the market, our factory machines have the capability to produce different sizes with specific machines and they can satisfy the foreign and domestic demands for bags of different sizes.
Some of our machines include:
Automatic paper bag forming machines: 260/350/380/450/520
Semi-automatic paper bag forming machines: 350/42/450 (use for thick paper)

The numbers above represent the maxim width of the produced paper bags. It can also be used as a scale of size.  For example: 260 Automatic- creates bags width of 150~260 mm. 


Our full auto machines can not only 100% finished paper bags, but also produce the main body itself. We can adjust our production line according to the orders and timeline. Full auto machines can always be adjusted to do the work of semi-autos. 


With our many production lines running, we will always notify our clients if we need to adjust the schedule to meet the intended shipments. In the case, we have a bag size that fits more than one of the intended chosen machines; we’ll adjust our production lines to incorporate different machines into production. Of course, we also acknowledge there are clients who demand a designated machine or mold for production. We will do our utmost to fulfill the client’s desires and orders.  

The process of producing a paper bag requires details and attention. Quality control is a necessary and important step in our productions. We will make sure every shipment is right and on time. We will plan and adjust everything to make sure the bags get to you, and you get them to the customers.
