Imprint of Hengshang|Johnson & Johnson Optoelectronics: Shenzhen “Specialized, Specialized and New” competes for the new track of smart sensors

Founded in 2013 in Dayun AI Town, Henggang Street, Longgang District, Shenzhen Qiangsheng Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. is a national high-tech enterprise focusing on the production, research and development and sales services of semiconductor packaging products.

In the past ten years since its establishment, Johnson & Johnson has maintained an annual growth rate of 30%-40%, and its output value has grown rapidly from less than 1 million yuan at the beginning to more than 80 million yuan today. It has grown into a specialized and special new enterprise in Shenzhen. During the epidemic prevention and control period, the order volume of forehead temperature gun sensors and oximeter photoelectric modules produced by Johnson & Johnson continued to rise, achieving growth against the trend.

Jin Qian, general manager of Johnson & Johnson Optoelectronics, said, “Henggang is my “first stop” after graduating from university, and it is also the starting point of entrepreneurship. Henggang’s business environment is suitable for the development of our small and medium-sized enterprises.”

In June 2022, Shenzhen proposed to develop and expand the “20+8” industrial cluster, and to accelerate the cultivation and growth of trillion-level and 100-billion-level advanced manufacturing clusters. one. Jin Qian said that Shenzhen’s layout of “20+8” industrial clusters is exactly the development opportunity that Johnson & Johnson needs to seize.

On the road to entrepreneurship, “Henggang is my first stop in Shenzhen”

In July 2000, after graduating from university, Jin Qian took a train ticket and a mat and took the train station from Nanchang, Jiangxi to Shenzhen Station alone.

Henggang is Jin Qian’s “first stop” in Shenzhen. Here, Jin Qian took his first job at Henggang Guangtai Electronics Factory. At that time, various industries in Henggang were waiting for development, and now the two-way eight-lane Longgang Avenue was still only a two-way four-lane Shenhui Road.

Later, Jin Qian worked as a R&D engineer in an IT company in the optical communication industry. Johnson & Johnson is the second company founded by Jin Qian.

Johnson & Johnson focuses on the packaging of semiconductor and infrared LED packaging products. The products mainly include semiconductor lasers, blood oxygen sensors, smart wearable sensors, thermopile sensors, security monitoring infrared LED light sources, etc., which are mainly used in security, medical, and mobile phone digital industries.

After relocating from Longhua to Henggang in 2016, Johnson & Johnson began to develop rapidly, and the factory expanded from 1,000 square meters to 2,000 square meters. In 2017, the output value of Johnson & Johnson Optoelectronics increased to more than 20 million, which doubled from the previous year. It became an enterprise above designated size and obtained the national high-tech enterprise certificate.

The development of enterprises brings about an increase in the demand for industrial space. In 2019, with the help of Henggang Street, the Johnson & Johnson Optoelectronics production base was relocated to Henggang Dayun AI Town, and the area was expanded from 2,000 square meters to 5,000 square meters.

Johnson & Johnson attaches great importance to the research and development of new products and the application of new technologies, and the annual investment in research and development accounts for more than 10% of the turnover. Infrared light sources produced by Johnson & Johnson are the core components used in security systems, and the highest peak once occupied 80% of the Shenzhen market share.

Jin Qian said that Shenzhen has provided young people with entrepreneurial support and an inclusive policy environment for more than 20 years since he came to Shenzhen. Allow him to realize the ideal of starting a business here.

Government-enterprise linkage to ensure production

Contrarian growth during the epidemic prevention and control period

The accumulation and precipitation of sensor technology in the start-up period has laid the foundation for Johnson & Johnson to achieve a contrarian take-off during the epidemic prevention and control period in 2020.

Jin Qian introduced that the Spring Festival in 2020 was at the beginning of the epidemic, and orders for core components of anti-epidemic products such as forehead temperature gun sensors and oximeter photoelectric modules surged. At that time, the number of orders received by Johnson & Johnson Optoelectronics in a month even exceeded one annual order volume.

Taking oximeters as an example, the normal annual sales volume is 200,000 units, while at the beginning of the epidemic, Johnson & Johnson received 2 million orders a month.

However, at that time, it had just settled in the Universiade AI Town, and was facing the dilemma of resuming work during the epidemic prevention and control period: one is the low arrival rate of personnel, and the other is the difficulty in supplying raw materials.

After learning about the needs of Johnson & Johnson to start construction, the relevant departments of Longgang District and Henggang Street quickly opened a green channel for the company.

Jin Qian said, “The Bureau of Industry and Information Technology of Longgang District and the relevant departments of Henggang Sub-district provided us with good conditions for resumption of work and provided guidance at that time to ensure that the park could carry out production in a safe and orderly manner while meeting the requirements of epidemic prevention, making us the first batch of A business that started successfully.”

Benefiting from this, in 2020, Johnson & Johnson will increase its efforts to develop and produce anti-epidemic products such as temperature sensors and oximeter sensors, and the number of orders continues to rise. The total output value exceeded 80 million, nearly doubling from the previous year, achieving growth against the trend.

In March this year, during the epidemic prevention and control period, Henggang Sub-district applied for a vehicle pass for the company, allowing Johnson & Johnson to achieve normal production and operation while ensuring epidemic prevention and control, and to ensure the security of the company’s supply chain.

As an enterprise, Johnson & Johnson has also taken the initiative to undertake social responsibilities and actively assist in the prevention and control of the epidemic in Henggang Street. Jin Qian led Johnson & Johnson employees to sign up for volunteer services for epidemic prevention in streets and parks many times.
