Since I took over the company in 1971 Asia Chemical made money every year, even during the oil crisis of 1972-74. Sales reached NT$4.8 billion in 1997. Although Asia Chemical made money, its growth has not equaled that of many other enterprises during the same period. The only consolation I have is that our people worked very hard and devotedly. Many of them have been with us since the beginning, and many more have been with ACC for more than twenty years. Today Asia Chemical is not big, but it is very healthy.
