In 1961, Mr. and Mrs. Sheng (Y. T. Sheng and Lai Jin Zhi) together with Mr. T. C. Wang (his peers and customers nicknamed him Assay), who was then not yet 20, launched a company-- "Zimmerman Scientific Materials Company"-- at Section 3 of Roosevelt Road, Taipei City. Initially the company was engaged in the transaction simple laboratory equipments, glasswares and chemical reagents, etc. Later on, Mr. J. Y. Jean left his teaching job and joined Zimmerman. These founders and their respective hard work had paved a sound foundation for the development of the company. In 1966, in response to the growing need of the market, our company was reorganized and changed its name to “Zimmerman Scientific Co., Ltd.”
Due to the changes in the international political and economic situations, Taiwan also underwent a big change in its social and economic environment. Through good investments in various sectors of manufacturing and service, Taiwan gradually transformed itself from an agricultural society and economy to a modern free economic society. This structural change in Taiwan’s society and economy also quickened the step of our company to expand its business to automated control systems, focusing especially on the process optimization and quality improvement of Taiwan’s petrochemical, steel, textile, water treatment, and other industries. In the 1980s and 1990s, as Taiwan’s precision machinery and electronics industries sprouted up, our company also launched a new business in high-precision measurement and high-tech industrial equipment for Taiwan’s high-tech industries, such as precision machinery, electrical materials, optoelectronics, and semiconductors.
During the past 60 years we experienced at least 3 major crises: the 1st international oil crisis in 1973 in the initial stage of our establishment, the subsequent economic downturn, and the financial turmoil in 2007-2008. We have endured and survived from the crises and have gone through the first 60 years of our company. Today, as we are entering the second 60 years, we will keep upholding the founder's philosophy of "Integrity" and "Sharing" as core values of doing business. We are committed to running our company with “integrity” and “sharing”, and leading our company with“vision” in “sustainability”.
