STAMTEC / CHIN FONG PRESSES: Chin Fong was founded in Taiwan in 1948. As you can tell by the founding dates of the Japanese & Taiwanese builders, most of the press technology was copied from both Aida & Komatsu in Japan. Chin Fong was first imported into NA under the name of Stamtec by Timco Industrial Machinery in Tn. Sutherland did join the efforts of Timco and reached an agreement that Sutherland would handle West of the Mississippi. This relationship did not last more than a few years, as Sutherland was focused on all of North America. This led Sutherland to Seyi / Shieh Yih who agreed that Sutherland would be the exclusive private label agent.
