Is Longse The Biggest Sony IC Buyer Of Southern China?

In what may be one of the few 100% correct (grammatically) sentences on their site, Longse declares they are the biggest Sony IC buyer of Southern China:

Which, considering Sony's IC output and Southern China's numerous manufacturers, seems amazing.

Could it be actually true, though?

From my correspondence with them, they claim to OEM for a a few large brands. I wouldn't be surprised if they are the largest buyer, considering they OEM for a lot of brands and I suspect Hikvision and Dahua focus a lot more on IP cameras.

I am guessing that Longse means video surveillance manufacturers. Sound fair to you? If so, who would you guess is the biggest buyer amount South China video surveillance manufacturers?

I think that Foxconn city in Shenzhen would be the biggest by several orders of magnitute. But technically they're a Taiwanese company and I'm unsure if they buy the chips themselves or if Apple always owns all the BOM.
