Taiwanese tech major, Asus is a well known company in the laptop and the smartphone segments. It actually started as a motherboard maker back in 1989, and has shipped over 500million motherboards ever since. It expanded business to become one of the top Notebook brands in the world and has created its own space in the smartphone industry.
Asus shared more insights with us during our trip to Taipei, Taiwan, where the company announced its new generations Zenfone series of devices, and more products at the Zenvolution event.
We were invited to cover Asus' Zenvolution event, and Computex 2016. During our trip, Asus also invited us to its headquarters in its home city to give us a glimpse of its world of tech.
We give you a tour to the Asus' big headquarters in Northern Taipei through the pictures we clicked:
As we entered the premises of the Asus facility, we walked past the company's logo placed outside the building. Asus' name is derived from Pegasus, the winged horse in Greek mythology. The company embodies the strength, purity, knowledge and adventurous spirit of Pegasus.
Asus welcomes people, be it visitors or employees or others, to its main hall with some very interesting installations, which reflect the companies philosophies and perfection areas. We entered building and were impressed to see interesting artworks, including a Mona Lisa image made from motherboard PCB components, placed to the right to the entrance, and a bull installation also adorning PCB components, to the left.
A little ahead, there was a display area where the company exhibited its products including latest smartphones, tablets, laptops, notebooks, and more.
We were then taken to the company's cafeteria area, where it offered facilities to its employees in terms of food. Asus has a big food court where there are multiple food outlets serving different cuisines under one roof. We also spotted Starbucks cafeteria at the food court.
The company understands the importance of healthy living for its employees, and believes in giving them the best of the facilities to stay fit and healthy. Its employees can make use of a sports hall, a big swimming pool, well equipped gym and exercise center.
Right across the swimming pool, there is a balcony that gives commanding view to the employees. You can take a look at the view yourself here:
We were then navigated towards the meeting room, where the company officials had kept their products' design components, chassis, material, shells and more.
Asus' office is vast and has lush greens inside the building and in the premises. The company understands its responsibility towards green governance and sustainability, and works towards it for a better environment and future.
