OUR HISTORY Our company began in May 2001 as a web based sourcing platform (hence the origin of the current name; the original name was e-trade2china) to allow clients the opportunity work with the Chinese market and supply base. Soon we recognized that we wanted to help our clients develop close relationships, especially where language, culture and time differences are present.

We moved away from a simple website for our clients to a more service-focused model that ensured our clients were able to gain entry into low cost country manufacturing areas. With a focus on service, we have grown to a company of approximately 250 staff in offices all over the world.

Our client portfolio now ranges from publicly quoted companies through to SMEs; retailers through to wholesalers based in the US, UK, EU to Australia and New Zealand. Please contact us for references.
