What kind of company is Chain-Ray?
We are a small- to medium-sized enterprise specializing in providing overall solutions for mechanical parts for domestic and foreign customers.
To understand what we do, think of a mobile phone. There are electronic and mechanical parts that are composed of metal material and plastic material.

With more than 200 suppliers all over the world, our experienced engineering teams use their design expertise, material knowledge, and manufacturing capabilities to serve customers.
Our goal is to build the world's most agile supply chain, the “Chain-Ray Supply Chain," and provide customers with the highest quality of local service. At the same time, with suppliers all over the world, we purchase a large number of different raw materials every year to satisfy customization requirements, from a single screw to a large number of finished products.

Our aim is always to serve our customers with the best possible solutions, working alongside them to overcome challenges and exceed their expectations.

The sharers receive a day of compensatory leave. The listeners get the chance to absorb new knowledge and positive energy while enjoying a free breakfast.
Every Friday afternoon, we hold an inter-departmental gathering. Colleagues can share any challenges they’ve encountered during the week, inviting everyone to brainstorm and consider product development as a group. There is afternoon tea and other beverages shared. Chain-Ray will occasionally invite well-known experts to the company to hold classes, making sure our employees' ideas and knowledge can advance with each passing day.
