3/7/2005 - China Digital Communication Group (OTCBB: CHID), one of the fastest growing battery production companies in China, announced that it has expanded its research and development team to help develop and improve a new series of product lines. It also detailed steps taken recently to lower its operating and procurement costs.
Shenzhen E'Jenie, China Digital's battery-shell manufacturing subsidiary, has set up a research and development team made up of technicians specializing in steel-shell, aluminum-shell and cap products. The new R&D team has already helped the Company cut its product defect rate significantly from the third quarter to the fourth quarter of 2004.
"We are very pleased with the expansion of our R&D department and are excited to have onboard a team of highly qualified technicians," said Sun Yibo, China Digital's Chairman and CEO. "The demand for our products has been very strong and growing, and expanding our R&D department is just one of many steps we are taking to ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of technology and provide quality products to our growing customer base."
Among the cost-cutting moves announced today was the November 2004 retention of Tian Yi (Hong Kong) Investment Management Co., Ltd., as a management consultant to help optimize China Digital's organization, operating and accounting procedures. The Company also reported that it has already cut the cost of raw materials purchasing by between 2% and 3% through a new bidding process initiated this year where at least five vendors will compete on the basis of price, product quality, technology, warrantee period, services and payment models. These moves are expected to enhance the Company's gross margins going forward.
