HISTORY
 
HARVEST / HARBINGER GROUP (earlier and better known as HARVEST General Trading Corp) was established as early as 1987 at a time when Taiwan was experiencing a boom as a manufacturing powerhouse for electronic products and components. As the name implies, HARBINGER started out as a general trading outfit. Its early successes, however, quickly enabled the company to venture into research and development, product development, and manufacturing.
 
HARBINGER's initial foray into research and development was in the field of RF technology, an area the company still specializes to this day and considers as one of its key competencies. The company further leveraged this strength in wireless technology to gain further technical experience in the IT industry, paving the way for successful inroads into the digital age.
 
HARBINGER products can be found in the most demanding vertical markets as well as among the most discerning mass markets. (See Company Milestones)  The company has gained a reputation from customers in providing high quality products and efficient service. 
 
In Taiwan, the company owns and uses the DENPA brand; it was the market leader for professional-use Digital Voice Recorders at a time when the type of product was common-use.  The DENPA brand continues to be used for OEM branding.   Although nowadays about 85% of the company’s turnover is coming from the government sector, the local distribution channel is still actively maintained with specialized electronic products.
 
HARVEST/HARBINGER GROUP operates from a very solid financial base and still continues to put significant investments in R&D to develop a diverse range of innovative products for both local and overseas markets.  The company regularly works with the Government in Taiwan on key technology projects.
