furniture. Talking about the company’s milestones throughout the years of
joining MIFF, Senior Export Manager Soon Yen Siong shared: “When we started to
export in 1989, our market was very small. The buyers were mostly brought in
by agents. But after joining MIFF in 1995, our export business increased rapidly.
