The company SENG HUAT CANVAS STORE, then change to SENG HUAT CANVAS TRADING CORPORATION started out with one (1) high frequency machine, one (1) sewing machine and four (4) persons. As the years go by, the company expanded its operation due to demand of its production line. With the incoming expansion, the employees had been increase from 4 to 24 persons and additional ones due to existing contacts with two agencies which can provide additional reinforcement in one day notice. The first expansion started with a new company which manufacturing of raincoat and other plastic items. Ten (10) new high frequency machines were added to speed up the service to the customers. The second expansion is the establishment of steel iron works. Such steel works proved to be quite viable, and we had become one of the cheapest manufacturer of quality tents, and one of the most practical. Price computations are done from one hour to a maximum of 5 days. We patronize customer satisfaction in terms of workmanship, time limit and price. We had also established a rental position in the market, a three (3) notice is provided. As business worldwide begun to slump down, the company went with the trend of importing products from China. Time and again, these items proved to be of poor quality, thus, whatever improvements need to be done to protect our motto of quality first, customer’s satisfaction, the company did, while still maintaining its competitive price. The company first advertised in the yellow pages directory, which at the beginning is helpful, but afterwards, we found out the huge expenses involved, thus we cut down on advertisement, without loss of sales. This is possible thru the word of mouth, thru referrals and listing in the internet. The company sales is almost uniform for the 12 months period, and is always given a chance to contribute its expertise for the success of special occasions, like Jamboree of Subic, The Pope visitation, the Airport of General Santos which was done by us inaugurated by Pres. Ramos, the setting up and contractor at the Fort during the Christmas season, the overall repair of the 1st Campshell at the Intramuros “WOW Philippines”, the complete renovation of PPA South Harbour, the overall supplier of tents organized by Cavite Church, now, the supplier of Parabolic Tents of the leading food chain. SENG HUAT CANVAS TRADING CORPORATION starting by being a trader of nylon tarpaulin, and fabricator of such items for the protection of barges, trucks, and open warehouses. It also became dealer of polysack, a replacement of tarpaulin, which is very much cheaper however, for temporary use only. Later on diversified its product lines to include seaming of plastic items on a per order basis. Then, it became the fabricator of rainwaver, dealership of rainboots which go hand in hand with new items to present.
