First Sumiden Circuits, Inc.
First Sumiden Circuits, Inc. (FSCI) is a joint venture among Sumitomo Electric Industries, Inc. (SEI, with 51%), First Philippine Holdings Corporation (FPHC, with 40%), and Sumitomo Corporation (SC, with 9%). Incorporated in March 1996, FSCI was registered with the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) as a pioneer economic zone enterprise in April 1996. Its plant at the Special Ecozone of the Light Industry and Science Park (LISP) in Cabuyao, Laguna, was inaugurated in July 1997.
FSCI manufactures flexible printed circuits (FPCs) which are small, lightweight wiring components with electronic circuits printed on a flexible film. In order to meet customer needs for complex parts mounting indispensable for high density information transmission, FSCI have recently established flip-chip mounting technology for FPC application (FCOF). FPCs are widely used in electronic devices such as hard disk drives (HDDs), cell phones, car audio equipment, DVD and CD players, cameras, and printers. Consistent with its PEZA registration, FSCI sells 100% of its FPCs to the export market. These are either transported by air to its overseas customers, or by truck to its local multinational customers as constructive exports. FSCI uses freight forwarders to handle its export shipments, but delivers directly to its local customers.
FSCI strives to become a center for global manufacturing competence in FPC manufacturing. Part of the strategy of SEI in locating its plant in the Philippines is to locate near its customers, such as Fujitsu, Hitachi, and SHARP, all of which have factories in the Philippines. FSCI's strategic plan is guided by its vision of becoming the "world's leading manufacturer of flexible printed circuits" and its mission to "capture the flexible printed circuits market by providing the highest quality, lowest cost and fastest delivery time, in order to increase the value for our stakeholders".
FSCI is shaping a culture of innovation, empowerment, and agility that values employee learning and continuous improvement. Employees are guided by a set of core values, which have been published and disseminated to all employees through communication channels, training programs and company-wide activities following the deployment process of the performance management system.
