The year was 1968, when my father Allan Shen started his trading company in Taiwan. Not only was my father a visionary but he was an astute businessman and great teacher of business. He instilled in his two sons John and Wayne many important lessons. He taught us to fully understand our customer’s business and needs so we could provide better service; to work smart and plan ahead so we could identify obstacles and overcome them; to step outside the box and try to think of new and innovative products to offer our customers; and finally, to be honest with our customers so that can build a business based on mutual trust and integrity.
I joined my father in business in 1980 and Wayne joined in 1991. Since moving our headquarters to Hong Kong in 1989 which we have continued to grow and become one of the most successful trading companies in the seasonal, home décor, ribbon, garden and floral categories. Our business has prospered because of the relationships that we have developed with our customers, our employees and our partner factories. I take great pride in the team that I have assembled and realize that they are the backbone and the success of our company. Just as my father taught me many important lessons I have passed his philosophy onto them and together we continue to grow our business one customer at a time.
It has always been our company goal to become our customer’s “bridge to success”. We pride ourselves on offering new and exclusive designs and merchandising solutions, quality product and delivering on time. Just a peek into our beautiful showroom in Hong Kong and you’ll see our devotion and passion. Given the opportunity we can offer you what others cannot deliver … and I look forward to the challenge.
