Company description: Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) is primarily known as one of the largest motherboard manufacturers in the world. Founded in 1987 with just $200,000 in capital, ECS has grown into a $350 million dollar company with over 600 employees worldwide. Publicly held in Taiwan, Elitegroup has offices in Asia, Europe and North America. In 1994, Elitegroup shipped over 1.7 million motherboards.

Elitegroup designs and manufactures motherboards, add-on boards and most recently, multimedia products for the OEM and VAR channels. Much of Elitegroup's success is based on strong R&D, total commitment to quality and a highly experienced and efficient manufacturing team.

ECS expects revenues to be $500 million by 1995 with a projected annual growth rate of 43%.
