 About KST



 Management Philosophy


In 1973, with only a capital of 3,000 Ntd, three brothers founded K.S. TERMINALS INC. (abbreviated as KST) under the original name K.S. INDUSTRY CO. in a small family factory spanning less than 20 square meters. In the beginning, KST focused on OEM business, but due to the aftermath of the 1973 Oil Crisis and domestic inflation, the start-up soon underwent tremendous hardships. Despite this, the founders never gave up and upheld their philosophy of “Integrity First and Quality First," to overcome all challenges and economic crisis. Today, KST has achieved brand awareness, establishing themselves as a leading position in the terminal and connector industry. 

Looking over the past 40 years of development, K.S. TERMINALS started out as an OEM for electrical terminals and eventually branched out into lighting systems, communication components, automotive connectors, green energy connectors, wiring accessories and necessary equipments.

Maintaining the management philosophy of “Integrity, Solidarity, Quality, Research and Development, and Active Motivation," KST continued to expand product line and increase sales and revenue. Through strict quality control, standardized procedure, robotized manufacturing process, and fast automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), KST aims to provide the best quality, fastest delivery, and most satisfactory service for global customers. 

Looking into the future, KST continued to invest in research and development in order to develop innovative products and process technology. In addition, KST actively expanded the terminal and connector products in new energy sources, electric vehicles, rail transportation, network communication, and other industries. Through professional process technology and engineering services of design solutions and customized modules, KST aims to speed up the processes of innovation and market expansion in order to be a world-renowned brand amongst precision connector manufacturers and a preferred partner by all customers around the world.


Smarter. Greener. Together.
At KST, we commit ourselves to the advancement of power and electronics technology to provide “smarter” products with high efficiency. It helps us make possible a “greener” and more environment-friendly way of life. We collaborate with our partners, by listening to their needs, and accomplishing our mission “together”.

To provide the most reliable products and services, each series of products has passed the main certifications of UL, CUL, CE, TUV, DNV, ABS, CQC, RoHS, and the third-party certification system.

    Excellent One-Stop Service

KST supports more than 20,000 products, including terminals, connectors, wiring accessories, crimping tools and devices, and so on. They can fulfill the requirements of various industries such as electronic machine, power supply, network and communication, transportation, appliance and air control, vehicle, medical instruments, etc.


  Factory Overview


        Factory Process - Terminals and Connectors

K.S. TERMINALS is equipped with high-speed punching machines for better production efficiency and uses high-rigidity molds to extend the life cycle of stamping dies. Moreover, KST employs CCD automatic inspection systems for real-time continuous monitoring of the dimensions and cosmetics during manufacturing process.  

At K.S. TERMINALS, we possess all kinds of equipments for plastic products, including injection molding, extrusion molding, insert injection molding, and micro-injection molding, along with the capabilities to design, develop, and process the dies for injection molding.  

KST automation team aims at developing a variety of automatic equipments for mass production or customization, including automatic detection, auto feeding, automatic packaging, automatic assembly, as well as automatic cutting and processing, along with other manufacturing processes. Our automatic equipments can assist or replace automation devices to increase productivity and reduce the load of labors, and furthermore they can avoid man-made errors and reduce product’s defect rate and loss rate. 


Factory Process - Terminals and Connectors

               Assembly Production Line

There are more than 300 machines in the factory to assemble various types of terminals and connectors. These assembly machines developed by our automation team are quick to boot-up, easy to maintain, and have high flexibility in usage. They can be integrated to practice complex operations, including positioning, ordering, inserting, expanding, forming, rubberizing, heat-shrinking, printing, cutting, counting, packing, dimension inspecting, and error checking, etc. KST can achieve hi-mix low-volume manufacturing model and guarantee prompt delivery of urgent orders through:
