The Japanese can't catch up with Foxconn
previously, tiger sniff had published an exclusive interview with gou by Nikkei BP. In this interview, Gou Taiming talked about his thoughts and plans to take a stake in sharp. At that time, it seemed ambitious, saying that it would transform Sharp's factory into a world factory, and that it was "friends" with Japanese companies. But just two months later, there was discord in the joint venture between Foxconn and sharp
according to the information transmitted, the main contradiction between the two sides is "speed". Foxconn's speed and execution have nothing to do with the slow Japanese company sharp. Similarly, sharp also has many complaints. Recently, Nikkei BP recently published a report describing the collision between the world's largest OEM enterprise and Japanese brand company. This report may also inspire Chinese enterprises preparing to enter Japan or acquire Japanese companies
tiger sniff excerpt is as follows:
"Gou estimates that he is thinking all the time 'how can we provide food for 1.2 million employees in Chinese Mainland tomorrow'. It is self-evident that the crack growth rate will decrease with the increase of grain size. What is the most important thing? It is speed."
a Taiwanese executive of an American electronics OEM said
on June 25, Nihon Keizai published a report entitled "buy it all!" Hon Hai pressure that made sharp tremble ". The report said that in the recent negotiation process, Foxconn has increasingly deterred sharp. Facing sharp, who is obsessed with every detail and hesitates, Foxconn Chairman Terry Gou threatened Sharp's executives with "if it takes so long, it's better to buy it all". It is reported that Gou's attitude and momentum shocked sharp executives
a number of Japanese media reported on Sharp's shareholders' meeting held on June 25, saying that shareholders worried about Foxconn's "usurpation of power" raised doubts because Gou had expressed his intention to buy more shares of sharp in his speech. In this regard, sharp president Takashi ODA stressed that "he did not accept more capital contributions and director reservations from Hon Hai". The next day, Taiwan media published president Okuda's speech with the title of "sharp refuses Foxconn's additional investment"
among them, Taiwan's economic newspaper "business times" (June 27) introduced Japan's report on the negotiation between sharp and Foxconn under the title "Guo suffered from a sudden onset of wind shock and happened to meet a Japanese slow doctor"
the business times commented that "Foxconn, which is good at fast decision-making and flexible response, reflects Gou's character. But Gou's encounter with Japan, which pays attention to order and etiquette in everything, is just like a panic with a slow doctor"
on the one hand, the US EMS executives mentioned earlier: "now is the period of running in between Foxconn and sharp. It is normal to have a little friction." On the other hand, he also said, "the success or failure of EMS (electronic OEM) business depends on speed. Foxconn's ability to take over Apple's business in the United States is not just because of its low cost. It is because Foxconn has made rapid decisions in decision-making, production and other aspects, and can launch tens of millions of products to the market as soon as possible"
what happens if the speed is slow? "It will be dominated by cheaper and newer products. The market will fall into the hands of competitors in the blink of an eye. What will be waiting to further improve production efficiency? It will be the reality that 1.2 million employees will not have jobs. Imagination alone is daunting. In order to keep the jobs of 1.2 million people, Gou has paid a lot of effort to fight for jobs tomorrow and even this afternoon. Thinking about this, we may understand that Gou is Why pursue speed so much? "
"the share of Japanese enterprises has decreased so much, why does it make outsiders say 'slow'? Not only Taiwanese, for foreigners, the attitude of Japanese enterprises is incredible"
