Our predecessor company was founded in 1984 with Orient Depot assuming the operation in 2002, and to this date, our main focus has been on making our company well respected in the communities in which we operate. Our continuous growth is attributable to us forging strong relationships with our clients and suppliers. We see the three of us; clients, suppliers and Orient Depot, as having a shared vision of providing exceptional products with unmatched service at competitive pricing.
It is important that we strive for continuous improvement and look for new ways to provide clients with excellent products and services. Our strong sales network recognizes that various clients require different approaches.
To assure we are meeting the needs of our clients, we have segmented our sales channels into the following offerings: Asian retailers, commercial clients, mass retailers, and e-commerce. We have also established satellite offices and warehouses in Vancouver, Alberta and Montreal to insure we are closer to our clients and able to respond quickly to their needs. However, we are constantly seeking ways to improve and therefore, always re-evaluating how to best deliver our products and services through retail partners who also share our passion in delivering elegant, innovative and upscale products with enduring style.
Orient Depot is devoted to carrying the best product lines from around the world and offer the best sales network Canada can offer. We have penetrated the Canadian marketplace with our exclusive brands through importing, wholesaling, mass-merchandising, sales and marketing efforts.
Today, we distribute to more than 2000 local retailers across Canada, consisting of most major North American retailers, supermarkets, boutique retailers as well as major commercial and hospitality organizations.
We also specialize in providing one-stop-shop ethnic sourcing and product development services to help North American retailers achieve their category goals. Our recent successes include helping major retailers to source for the ideal assortment of products for specific category programs.
We are committed to bringing in high quality, elegant and innovative products into the Canadian marketplace as well as carrying brands that are pioneers in their field. As their exclusive Canadian distribution office, we take pride in representing these firmly established brands whose quality and history speak for themselves and use this privilege as a drive to deliver the highest quality of customer service. For more than 30 years, we have been sourcing and supplying to both consumer retail and commercial industries for household, kitchenware, giftware products as well as food and beverage appliances.
The exclusivity of the product lines we deliver dictate our company policy and that’s why our promise extends further than sourcing and supplying world-class products that exceeds expectation. At Orient Depot, we use our 360-degree service approach to ensure an all-rounded customer experience through working with us: product consultation, product delivery and full after-sales service.
Orient Depot is the exclusive Canadian distribution office of many tier one brands from around the world, as well as high-end Japanese kitchen small appliances, kitchenware, vacuum bottles, thermal wares and commercial restaurants and hospitality products. These products undergo extensive quality inspections before getting an approval to be released into the market. Our current product division is also under expansion, aiming to bring in new products to keep up with the ever-evolving lifestyle demands of our customers.
