We are where the manufacturers are – every day
Our customers also have other concerns than low prices and reliable
delivery of goods. We work with major organizations such as the
BSCI to have the factories we work with meeting their standards
on working conditions and work environment. Today, most of the factories
we work with are up to standards and we continue our effort to have
them all on board.
We allow no child labor, no bonded or forced labor or any kind of
discrimination. Health and safety regulations are to be carefully
observed at all times, salaries are to be above minimum requirements,
and government requirements for working environment and working
hours are to be kept.
The environment of the manufacturing countries are also a concern
of ours. We help provide the factories with equipment that is environment
friendlier and also heightens awareness of environmental hazards.
We know that it is easy to manipulate an inspection when done once
in a while, why we continuously inspect manufacturing sites to ensure
that everything is in order.
On top of all this, we are part of the CSR-initiative (Corporate
Social Responsibility) and donate to e.g. humanitarian funds and
a Cancer Hospital in Bangladesh.
Stability in the long run – building trust
We have over 40 years in the business and have built trust with
both our customers and suppliers in Asia.
Some of our suppliers have worked with us for 40 years, so we know
their goods is up to our standards and they give us good prices,
since they know we will come back.
This long-term partnership with our suppliers have allowed us to
build trust with our customers and to help our suppliers develop
their production lines to the fulfil the demands of our customers.
We call it our ”win-win” philosophy: both our customers
and our suppliers come out the winner of entering into business
