  Company:  Rinaat Cane Sdn Bhd

What's Gold Supplier

  Industry: Furniture
  Location:  Malaysia

  Website:  http://rinaatcane.trustpass.alibaba.com

  Gold Supplier member since 2005

Established in 1989, Rinaat Cane Sdn Bhd is one of the leading rattan    furniture and material manufacturers in Malaysia. Providing high quality furniture and materials to a variety of industries, Rinaat Cane has gone through a rapid development, from just depending on government’s project to exporting to China, Cuba, Egypt, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Singapore, Spain and Ukraine.

Before starting his own business, Mr Hassan worked as a government servant for more than 15 years. In 1989, he finally decided to quit and pursue his childhood dream of having his own business. At that time, he had very limited working capital and due to the recession, he was facing financial difficulties and had even thought of selling his company in 2005.

“I asked my kids what I should do and they asked me to surf the internet and fortunately I came across Alibaba.com. In just a few days after I registered as a free member, I received some enquiries and decided to register as a Gold Supplier. My first customer was from Cairo. He wanted us to product at least four containers a month and he is now my long term customer.”

Mr Hassan used to participate in tradeshow promotion and felt that it was very costly because the amount of customers he had from tradeshows was very limited.

Now, Hassan can breathe a sigh of relief as his company has grown significantly over the years with the help of Alibaba.com. “Without Alibaba.com, I don’t think my company would still exist as I intend to sell my company in 2005. Now with Alibaba.com and the markets I have, I produce3-4 times more. Alibaba.com has helped a lot to change my business life. It has solved my headaches, my financial problems and now I am free from debt,” said Mr Hassan.
