Company History
The beginning 1954-1962

Mr. P.Y. Young, chairman of the board of directors of Four Pillars, and his classmates, C.C. Young, C.Y. Cheng, Y.T. Hsieh, founded the Wei Mei Chemical Factory, which produced the first roll of cellophane adhesive tape in Taiwan. Subsequently, Mr. P.Y. Young, along with Messrs. S.Y. Wang, T. Chou, and C.B. Wan, founded Four Pillars Processing Factory to manufacture paper-backed aluminum foil, grease proof paper and waterproof asphalt paper. Ltd. in 1960 and Four Pillars was merged with Wei Mei Chemical Factory in the following year. Four Pillars has Processing Factory was reorganized as Four Pillars Enterprise Co., experienced rapid growth since the end of this period.

Period of exponential growth 1963-1971

Four Pillars grew strongly as a result of our employees' dedication to developing adhesive tapes such as PVC, pressure-sensitive and protection tape with different backings and new coating materials. The company also introduced state-of-the-art machinery into Taiwan. All these efforts have enabled us to establish a strong bond with our clientele and establish an excellent reputation for good quality among the public.

Period of rapid expansion: 1972-1989

As our business increased rapidly, we quickly added capacity to meet this demand. We were the first to install a solvent recovery facility in Taiwan for the purpose of environmental protection and energy conservation. Through our dedicated R&D efforts during this period, we were able to develop different tapes to market in various fields such as crepe masking tape. During this period, we also established an adhesive tapes plant in Singapore. The total types of products produced during this period surpassed one thousand for the first time.

Global Expansion 1990-


Four Pillars has been keeping up with the fast pace of globalization in the business community. Our R&D focus and foundation for growth will be in Taiwan, but increased globalization is required for us to better forecast worldwide developments.
