Company in Singapore

Postby kns » Sun, 08 Feb 2009 5:02 pm

Since I am from outside singapore, I have been trying to find out some information on this wholesale distribution company - ECS Holdings Limited
I am planning to buy some bulk volume products from them and just wanted to make sure everything is fine with them. If anyone has been doing business with them or heard of them, please advise. Thanks.

Hey all. Its funny thinking how I found this forum in the first place...hmm
Maybe I did not get my first post right, so I will rephrase a little.....

"If anyone has been doing business with them or even who has the slightest bit of information on them, please do provide. Thanks."

I think i know this company, if its manufacturing motherboards I know quite a lot about it, the manufacturing side is done in Taiwan and China, its real name is elite group. ECS. What is it you want to know? They have offices in USA too. Are you buying computer motherboards you can PM me with details if you do not wish to write in a public forum.

My wife is Taiwanese and I used to deal also with ECS Taiwan when i lived in Denmark. I didn't know they had office here in Singapore for overseas distribtuion. Where are you located? I would suggest locating the one closest to you, especially if you are in Europe. Netherlands is the main port of entry.

Singapore is probably more costly for these products, and they will be sent FOB Taiwan or HK anyway, here's the link If it's the same company, I can fill you in on what you want to know, and probably fix you up, with a contact if he's still there in Taiwan.

Thanks for the reply ksl. I tried sending you a pm but looks like the forum does not allow me to do it, since my account is new I guess.

Anyway it seems like that is a different company. I wouldn't know if they have some secret partnerships but this is the one I was talking about -

http://www.ecs.com.sg/index_n.php

From reading their profiles, they look like they are different entities. And my order is not just for motherboards but a whole range of IT products.
Maybe you are allowed to 'pm' me back on any other genuine distributors in Taiwan where I could get better prices.

I see there is no connection!

I was involved in computer components for many years in Denmark, all our contacts are Taiwanese, I have an excellent person in Denmark, that can probably beat any price you can get, he was the leading component supplier in the whole of Denmark at the time, business is sold on now, but i know he is still the best for outsourcing.

We actually established http://www.prcdata.dk/ back in 96 i think it was. Are you in singapore... I just arrived back from Taiwan at 6pm, In that kind of business you need some good networking partners, the margins are very low, and risks involved buying memory, unless you really know how the memory

This Company ECS is distributing just in Asia and owns most of the shares themselves. The share price will take a hammering soon i believe, I find it strange they haven't listed the address or office

You need to make 5 posts before your PM function will work correctly (spam prevention).
