1990'sEMS was founded
In 1989, Mr. Ma-Chuan, the founder of EMS, attended IWA seminars with elites of industry-university cooperation from water sectors. In the exhibition center, people lined up to see the electronic water meters of the foreign brands. Unexpectedly, some participants mocked Mr. Ma-Chuan “You are called the king of water meter in Taiwan. However, do you have ability to manufacture electronic water meters?” Since then, Mr. Ma-Chuan, refusing to lose and having strong ambition, kept thinking about “If foreign brands can make it, then EMS must have ability to make it, too.”
In 1990, TWC (Taiwan Water Corporation) invited many companies to attend seminar to discuss about the adoption of electronic water meters for higher efficiency in meter reading. At that time, most water meter manufacturers, except EMS, had no interest in the project as they all located thenselves in traditional mechanical industry.
As the pioneer in Taiwan electronic meter industry, Mr. Ma-Chuan started to discuss about the development of electronic water meters and to work with top research institutes and university professors, including ITRI, MIRDC, STUST, and Mr. HUANG. YU-CHUNG, who is the leader of the team to develop electronic water meters. In 1991, EMS co., Ltd "弓銓" was founded. Two years later, in 1993, the first electronic water meter developed in Taiwan was finally released .
