In 1986, our Director Mr.Chan Soo Teck started out as a rattan carpenter at his small factory in Petagas with only less than 10 staffs. Among the staffs that helped him then and still is today is his brothers, Mr Chan Yen Soon and Mr. Alan Chan. Also with him was his childhood friend from his hometown in Johor, Mr Chai Soon Fatt. Together they worked hard covering all areas from producing the rattan furnitures to delivering the finished products to end users. Even with very minimal machineries, they are able to produce 20 to 30 sets of rottan sofa daily to sustain the local markets' demand which also includes wholesaling.
In 1987, Mr.Chan's opened his first retail outlet in Karamunsing Complex to retail his rattan furnitures. 3 years later, he restructured his stategy and made a decision to stop the rattan production and instead concentrate on retailing other types of furnitures besides rattan. He also diversified his business by adding electrical and IT products into his showroom to attract more customers. The response from the customers was positive and it prompted him to open his second retail outlet in Labuan in year 1994, Sandakan in 1995, Sadong Jaya, Lahad Datu, Johor store, Tampoi, Tun Aminah and 3 branches in Sarawak (Miri, Bintulu & Sibu) in 1996 . Then, he continued to open more retail outlets at Tawau, Majidee, Kota Tinggi, Pasir Gudang and Kulai in year 1998 . Many more outlets sprouted all over East and West Malaysia soon after.
