Elite Group Computer Systems
Elitegroup Computer Systems Co., Ltd, is a Taiwan-based electronics firm. It is the fifth largest PC motherboard manufacturer in the world with production reaching 24 million units in 2002. Many of these motherboards have been produced for OEM customers and are used in systems assembled and sold by such brand-name companies as IBM, Compaq and Zoostorm. Its main competitors are Micro-Star International and ASRock.
The company has since concentrated on broadening its product range. After ECS's purchase of laptop manufacturer Uniwill in 2006, the company has been involved in the design and manufacture of laptops, desktop replacement computers and multimedia products. ECS computers are sold by Fry's Electronics under the “Great Quality” (“GQ”) brand.
