packaged hardware production. The total
workplace was only 200 sq meters and there were
less than 10 workers. Also in 1999, we set up
our downtown office in Huaneng Hotel for the
convenience of doing international business.
In June 2000, our factory moved to Hemashi,
Qingdao and then to Yangjiashangliu, Qingdao in
Sep.2001 due to the urban construction plan. We
had about 50 workers and 1,200 sq meters
workshop at that time.
As the rapidly increasing of the orders, the
existing facilities can't catch up the pace of
the development. In 2005 we finally decided to
invest on purchasing our own land and office.
After one year construction, a new and beautiful
workplace was completed and we moved in it in
June 2006. Now we have over one hundred
experienced workers working on ten production
and packaging lines.

total area is about 370 sq meters, where there
are more than 10 professional staff working for
