33 years, still counting, local workers only, period.
"Going local does not mean walling off the outside world. It means nurturing locally owned businesses which use local resources sustainably, employ local workers at decent wages and serve primarily local consumers. It means becoming more self sufficient and less dependent on imports. Control moves from the boardrooms of distant corporations and back into the community where it belongs.” (Shuman, 2000)
We stick to above principle from the very beginning, when ringgits are spent locally, they can in turn be re-spent locally, raising the overall level of economic activity, paying more salaries, and building the local tax base. This re-circulating of money leads to an increase of economic activity, with the degree of expanse entirely dependent on the percentage of money spent locally.
This represents the quantifiable advantage to the city provided by locally owned businesses relative to chain businesses. It is the added economic benefit of local businesses to a local economy. According to economics study, Local businesses generate a substantial local premium, or added economic benefit over chain retailers. This means more money will be circulating in the local economy, which may lead to more public infrastructure like libraries and schools, and raising more money in taxable transactions to fund local government services.
As in 2022, we are operating with 15 local workers, including directors.
New address. Limitless future.
We has moved to current address on Jan 2017, this new location gives us an extra 30,000 square feet roofed warehouse which will be used for our lumber storing, extra 3 acres reinforced land for logs storing.
Since we are currently expanding our business, we needed the extra room to expand our assembly department even further.
New building provides more space with the larger warehouse facility and additional offices for staff. All warehouse is covered with industrial-grade concrete flooring to ensure less dust, smoothed machines moving, and improved workers safety.
Concrete flooring also mean we spend less on machinery repair and maintenance plus smooth moving on forklifts / shovers will then contributed low fuel consumption thus spend less on diesel, less on diesel mean less on pollution, working towards to greener environment.
Less dust, less fuel, less maintenance, less carbon.
Combined both cleaner operation & low carbon footprint, we move one step closer to built better environment for peoples.
