1952 - 1977THE TSENGS AND THE WEIS - TAIWAN PANTY HOSES'DRIVING FORCE

50年代末期,在彰化伸港鄉有曾氏家族、社頭鄉有魏氏家族,投資自日本引進褲襪製造技術,開始從事尼龍絲襪、褲襪的生產。相對於一般的短襪,褲襪機台設備成本更高昂、技術製程更複雜,當時曾氏與魏氏家族各投入高額成本,成立一貫作業工廠(假撚→編織→車縫(腳底車縫和褲檔車縫)→染色→烘乾→定型→包裝)生產褲襪,成為繼蕭氏集團大同實業後,在彰化地區最大的襪廠。爾後,陸續有該兩大家族的廠內員工習得該項技術自行創業,使得日後中小型褲襪工廠應運而生。當時各襪廠的分佈地區以台北縣、桃園縣、彰化縣較多。
At the end of 1960, both the Tsengs in Sheng-kang Township, Changhua and the Weis in Shetou introduced the techniques of making panty hoses from Japan and started to produce nylon stockings and panty hoses. Comparing with the costs of making socks, the costs of producing panty hoses were much higher, and the production process was more complicated. Those two families invested a huge amount of money in establishing hosiery factories which used consistent integrated production process ﹝textured(假撚)→knitting→sewing (sole and crotch)→dyeing→drying→boarding→packing﹞and, thus, became the leading brands in Changhua. After that, some of their employees who acquired the techniques left and started up their own hosiery business in small or medium sizes. Most of them located in Taipei County, Taoyuan County and Changhua County.
