JPCI CONTROLS Ultimheat www.jpci.cn www.ultimheat.com July 2010 COMPANY HISTORY . This factory started with a few employees in 1999, under a French management and investment, in a 200 square meter assembly room. The rapid growth obliged to move it in 2000 to a 1000 square meters factory, then in 2004 to 4000 square meters. And in 2009 to a 10.000 square meter factory on 50.000 square meter ground, allowing future development. Production range -Connection blocks, electrical connectors, housings for heating elements, controls, base board heaters. -Immersion heaters and heating elements -Capacity heaters -Flow switches for boilers. -Level switches. -Pressure switches and air switches for spas, boilers and water/steam pressure tanks. -Thermostats (bulb and capillary, bimetal strip, bimetal disc). - Fusible links and fire detection mechanisms. -Air conditioning and domestic heating back up heaters -Spa heater -Swimming pools heaters -Circulation heater for domestic central heating -Heat pumps heat exchangers for swimming pools heating Major production lines THERMOSTATS SWIMMING POOL AND SPA FITTINGS PRESSURE SWICHES FLOW SWITCHES SWIMMING POOL HEAT PUMP HEATERS BACKUP HEATERS AND HEAT EXCHANGERS IMMERSION HEATERS SPA HEATERS HEATING ELEMENTS LEVEL SWITCHES CARTRIDGE HEATERS WITH CONTROLS FIRE DETECTION LINKS FIRE DAMPERS MECHANISMS CONNECTION BLOCKS Exhibition Room We support local artists with free exhibition of their paintings and handicraft productions Sales Department Commited to export, customs clearances and domestic sales Research and Development Department One new product is developed every 2 weeks Sample Department Prototypes testing and samples manufacturing Quality control team Zero defect is a goal, not a dream !

In the fast moving Chinese industrial economy, this is a very difficult goal. Delivery failures, local suppliers inconstant quality, and suppliers wrong price calculation are the most common issues. So decision was made since the beginning to produce ourselves everything we need, and reducing our suppliers to raw material suppliers. We set up a raw material control laboratory, and by this way we dramatically reduced the non conformities and production stops. Actually, we are integrated in more than 30 different production process, and most of products we make are fully produced from the raw material. The engineering department is aware of European, American and Chinese standards, takes care and analyse existing worldwide patents and is managed by European engineers. Major benefits of vertical integration -Products engineering based on best production capabilities and international standards. -Fast and efficient new products development. -Quality Control at every steps. -Fast corrective actions. -Cost-effective solutions. -Well controlled prices and deliveries.
