Our company was founded in May 2001 as a web based sourcing platform called e-trade2china. Soon we recognized that we wanted to help our clients develop close relationships – especially where language, culture, and time differences are present. This prompted our move away from a simple website to a service-focused model that delivers a more personal approach.
We rapidly recognized that our clients particularly valued our network of close relationships with factories. Where language, culture, and time differences are present creating potential barriers to easy concise communication. This prompted our move away from a simple website to a service-focused model based in seven countries to deliver a more personal, innovative and agile service.
Since 2001 with a single minded focus on delivering great service, we have grown our company to over 250 staff in offices across seven countries. Serving publicly listed companies and start-ups.
