About the Lotus Communication Inc. Group

   A unique business philosophy distinguishes the Lotus Communication Inc. Group, which has no holding company but is strategically guided by its founders. Each company in the Lotus Communication Inc. Group operates autonomously under a common strategic umbrella. This decentralized approach maximizes the advantages inherent in small business units, such as flexibility, entrepreneurial spirit and management focus. A new company is established when a market opportunity is identified – requiring a technology, marketing approach or corporate culture that does not exist in any of the other companies.
