Harness cable is the "nerve system" of precision instrument equipments, and is directly related to product quality. Over the years, CIOMP EIC has continuously improved their capabilities and attaches great importance to staff training, holding technical knowledge and theory examinations and professional skill competitions every year.


This is not the first time EIC employees have won high-level competitions. In 2010, they won first and the second place in the "OK International" Cup Manual Welding Competition held by IPC. In 2012, they won the second place in the Qingdao Regional competition of the third IPC Manual Welding Competition.
