PLANET Technology Corporation

Mr. Jack Chen, the founder of PLANET Technology Corporation, has been the Chairman and CEO since the company’s establishment in 1993. Before that, he was with Wang Laboratories, one of the world’s leading computer companies in the 1970s and 1980s, for 11 years. Mr. Chen’s experience in the ICT field has inspired him to build his own company, exporting its products to the global ICT market under the brand name “PLANET”.

With the mission to be the best provider of network transmission products for customers, Mr. Chen has successfully led PLANET to be officially listed in the Taipei Exchange Market in 2003. Today, the company has distribution channels in more than 140 countries, making “PLANET” one of the leading brands of network and communications products in the world.

Mr. Chen believes in giving back to the society whatever he earns, a virtue he so warranted even back in his school days. In 2004, he established “PLANET Educational Charitable Trust”, the first public trust fund in Taiwan solely focusing on education support. Mr. Chen has effectively assisted more than 8,000 disadvantaged children from impoverished or difficult families in the greater Taipei area in remedial teaching, psychological counseling, emotional therapy and other activities, thereby regaining their motivation to learn, correct behavioral disorders and be able to adapt to studying normally.

The entrepreneur is passionate about sharing his entrepreneurship experience with university students and start-ups in Taiwan. He was also involved in government projects and associations related to entrepreneurship for many years, hoping to create a better environment for Taiwan entrepreneurs to help them make successful developments in the overseas market.

From Mr. Chen’s point of view, it is important for PLANET, a brand rooted in Taiwan, to keep innovating for it to be known in the four corners of the globe. Over the past 26 years, PLANET has come out with innovative IP-based solutions that cover a wide range of network infrastructures of data and power transmission, security surveillance, and more in areas where IoT, IIoT, and IoV applications come into play. In response to environmental sustainability, PLANET has developed a full range of smart and energy-saving networking products. Honoured by world professionals and business media and organisations, PLANET’s product portfolio has been awarded with recognition of reliability and excellent performance.

Mr. Chen first boosted the company’s brand awareness in Europe, followed by America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Under his leadership, PLANET has now built up professional and solid distribution channels in more than 140 countries across five continents. Under a long-term partnership, these overseas partners and distributors have brought PLANET closer to customers, ensuring global branding but with a local touch, and creating mutual business opportunities and benefits.

In particular, with altruism as the core, Mr. Chen has instilled a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) culture into the company. A friendly and happy working place with equal growth opportunities have been created. The company has also committed to the role of global citizenship, besides its product innovations. The company’s excellence has been recognised through numerous accolades in corporate performance and CSR, thus becoming a CSR model in Taiwan and worldwide.

In the digital era, the ICT industry has been so promising that smart networks which come with the IoT, IIoT, and IoV applications are being realised. “This is a great opportunity for PLANET”, said Mr. Chen, “because these network applications need the all-in-one solution that we offer. What we offer is the network transmission products and solutions designed for whatever network infrastructure you need.” With the company’s experience in developing network transmission products for 26 years and being a leading brand in the global market, Mr. Chen is optimistic about the company being one of the major market players in the networking and communications sectors. Meanwhile, he will also continue to contribute his entrepreneurship insights to start-ups in Taiwan, as well as endeavor to assist the disadvantaged children in education in order to create a better society in the future.
