A Taiwan-based computer hardware manufacturer, Gigabyte Technology, apologized for its remarks about the quality of "Made in China" products in statements issued on Tuesday.

The company triggered the anger of Chinese netizens after it said in a recent digital poster on its website that the company is different from other brands that reduce cost and quality by using Chinese manufacturers.

The company issued two statements on Tuesday on mainland social media platforms and said the text on the poster was seriously inconsistent with the facts, which was a result of the company's poor internal management.

It said the company apologized for the discomfort caused to the public.

The company said it has always adhered to the one-China stance and opposed any form of separatist behavior and speech.

It will deeply review the improper remarks and make comprehensive rectification to comply with China's national principles, the company said.

The company will strengthen internal management and training to ensure that all employees are aware of problems and take them seriously, it added.

The company has been operating on the mainland for more than 20 years, with factories in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province and Dongguan, South China's Guangdong province. At present, the poster circulating on the internet has disappeared from its website.
