Answer
Hi, Steve.

This is a tough one, because the name of the street and district is off, and you have the wrong city.

There is no "Pao Chiao" road in Taipei City, but there is one in New Taipei City (a different area) - except it's usually written "Bao qiao." The name of the district is misspelled - should be HSIN TIEN, often written "Xindian."  

With that info, you can go to the Chunghwa Post website at
http://www.post.gov.tw/post/internet/U_english/index.jsp?ID=24020502&phonetic=1
Then input "New Taipei City" and "Xindian Dist." in the top two selection boxes, and write "Baoqiao" in the street name box (leaving it to "All Sections").

If you do that, you get this result:

Zip code   District          Road          Scope
23145          Xindian Dist., New Taipei City,   Baoqiao Rd.,   All

So the five-digit zip code is 23145, and you should write it as:

Key Plus Industrie Co. Ltd
5F, No.1 Alley 1 Lane 235
Bao Chiao Road
Xindian District
New Taipei City 23145
Taiwan

Best,
