ShoppersClub has been serving the global online retailing market since its inception in the year 2001. Our business commenced in Bintulu, with a branch in Kuching operating concurrently, consisting initially of only 3 to 5 employees. As the GSM industry was experiencing rapid growth during that period of time, we started out by building our reputation as a premier supplier of various phone service devices, repairing tools, and spare parts.
In 2003, keeping in mind the emerging retailing trends worldwide, As this initiative took off, more business opportunities started emerging, each of them opening up fresh revenue streams. As a result, our factory in Zhuhai, China emerged at the beginning of year 2004, along with our branch in Shenzhen, China at the end of the same year.
Consequently, our current electronic retail store comprises of additional product categories such as arts and crafts, perfumes, computers and electronics, watches and, customized stationeries and gifts. This also led to the transfer of ShoppersClub Network from a sole proprietorship company to ShoppersClub Limited., a limited company. With all these in place, our sales volume has dramatically increased between year 2004 and 2005. Thus, we are poised to continue to expand our already strong national and international distribution.
