Around mid-2014, the founder of Mapleton International Corp. has discussed with the former President of In Tzong Enterprise Co., Ltd. about the prospects of Fengyuan District, Taichung where is not only the hometown for both of them, but also the former county seat of Taichung County. Unfortunately, due to the 2008 Global Financial Crisis and the 2010 Taichung County-City Consolidation, Fengyuan was gradually losing its relative importance of political and economic position in Taiwan. It was obvious to see that the downtown of Fengyuan has been turning from industrial and commercial prosperity to depression. Besides some revitalisation programs from the public sector, as a local entrepreneur, the former President of In Tzong Enterprise resolutely decided to increase his investment in Fengyuan, supporting local youth entrepreneurship. As a result, the establishment plan of Mapleton International Corporation was officially started.

Furthermore, Taiwan is an island, basing its development on trade. Before found MPTI, the company founder has also worked as a project manager (international sales representative) in a SME trading company which is located nearby the Taichung (Tanzi) Export Processing Zone. In addition, refer to the concept of Japanese "general trading companies (sogo shosha)", MPTI is self-positioned as an "integrated international trading company." Regarding the selection of the corporate headquarters location, the former President of In Tzong Enterprise has been inexpensively offering his abandoned building floors (located on the top three floors of the GP Xinyi Building) to MPTI for revitalising and reusing. In order to getting enough founds to establish the company, the MPTI founder sold his personal investment of shareholdings: First Financial Holding Co.,Ltd., CSC, Chunghwa Telecom Co., Ltd., Taiwan Cement Co., Ltd., and so no. In July 2014, the company registration was completed.

芝柏由來

三皇五帝時代有柏皇氏,是東方部族的首領,名叫芝,以柏木為部落圖騰,所以人稱「芝柏」。傳說芝柏曾任伏羲氏的大臣,並協助其悟出「八卦圖」。他勤勞於天下而不居功,造福百姓而無所欲求,深得百姓擁護,因此被尊為柏皇。柏樹,鬥寒傲雪且正氣避邪,乃百木之長。臺中市豐原區古稱「泰耶爾墩」,因為這片原野曾經是繁茂的楓樹林和「松柏林」,更是日據時代臺灣三大木材集散重鎮之一,木業帶動了大臺中山線地區的整體工商發展,直到〈禁伐令〉實施。座落在豐原信義街的「芝柏信義大廈」,以柏木為名,紀念著這片土地的初始與開發歷程,以繼往開來的精神,持續屹立在這座城市的中心區域。

楓邑國際,取「封邑」之諧音,封邑又稱「采」或「采邑」。而「楓」字源自「楓采邑關係企業集團」;「邑」字則是與「貿易」的易以及企業總部所在「信義街/芝柏信義大廈」的義同音,同時「邑」又代表了城鎮(Town;-ton),與公司英文名稱「Mapleton International Corp.」相互呼應,符合中英文命名的一致性。

楓邑之盾:創辦人草擬之企業標誌的設計概念,是參考了古典騎士紋章的「盾徽」,並以公司英文名稱 Mapleton 的開頭字母「M」,進一步結合楓葉意象以及漢字「邑」的形體,合而為一。後將概念付諸予美國一家專業的標誌設計公司進行繪製,該公司的作品包含:國泰航空機場快線(Cathay Xpress)商標、英國安格里亞魯斯金大學(Anglia Ruskin University)校徽、美國自由基金會(UAFF)標誌、德國漢堡市(Hamburg City)現代版市徽、歐洲電子商務發展協會(IECA)標誌和認證標章、波蘭農業電視台(TVR24.PL)商標、臺灣九族文化村麗宮(Ritz Palace)商標等著名案例。並考量到企業標誌應具現代化的簡潔線條風格(包浩斯設計風格),最終由現行的標誌獲選。

 

The Chinese characters: "楓邑" is pronounced the same as "封邑", which means "fief" in classical Chinese. As two separate Chinese characters, "楓" means "Maple" and "邑" means "Town"; therefore, the company was named "Mapleton" in English in order to be corresponding with its Chinese name.

Shield of Mapleton: the logo of Mapleton International Corp. was initially designed by the company founder. Its fundamental design concept is derived from classical heraldry: "coat of arms". The logo design is further integrated with the letter "M" of Mapleton, the symbol of maple leaf, and the Chinese character "邑", combining all of these concepts together into one modern style corporate logo with clean lines (in line with the design concept of the Bauhaus).
