Jiao Hsiung has developed into one of the largest manufacturers of ball pumps

Jiao Hsiung was founded in 1993 in the Taiwanese capital of Taipei. The first product that achieved patents in Germany, the U.S., Taiwan and China at the same time, was a manual ball pump. In the meantime, the company has developed into one of the largest manufacturers in the segment of ball pumps and accessories, with an annual turnover of 12 million U.S. dollars. In total, the company has 80 patents; 27 more are undergoing the assessment process.

Vincent Yang, sales manager of Jiao Hsiung, states that the goal is “to develope handy and multifunctional products that make everyday life easier.” In this way, the Taiwanese company is reacting to the pragmatic needs of athletes and trainers, to whom long-lasting and high-quality products are important.

An innovation that combines two functions at the same time and, in doing so, can be stored in sports bags in a way that saves space, is the double action pump. A ball pump and a pressure gauge can be used together or individually. The product is used, for example, in football: A Bundesliga football, for example, is standardized, not only with respect to size and weight, but also in relation to the pressure: The ball must be filled with an overpressure of 0.6 to 1.1 bar.

It is already the 15th Year in a row that Jiao Hsiung is represented as an exhibitor at ISPO MUNICH. “Our participation at ISPO MUNICH is a good opportunity to expand our business contacts in Europe and in the U.S.,” says Vincent Yang. The first European buyers of their products were one of Germany’s biggest team sport equippers.

Also other traders have Jiao Hsiung’s products in their ranges. The companies on the American continent are the largest buyers, at 50 percent; 27 percent of Jiao Hsiung’s goods are sold in Europe. Vincent Yang says: “If customers are looking for pumps, then straight away they think of Jiao Hsiung.”

Alongside the distribution of their own products by traders, there is also an interest in developing new projects in cooperation with customers, in which the Taiwanese company takes on the contract manufacturing (ODM) with the injection molding process. “In addition to the sports industry, other branches such as horticulture and the automotive industry are also interesting,” says Vincent Yang. The machines used are largely in-house productions and can be adapted individually to new products.
