Arthur Liao started LS2 in 1990 from a rural house that measured only 600 square feet. The company had a sole aim of manufacturing helmets. He could only afford to employ just one person, Peng, who is still an employee of the company to date. The initial capital outlay for the company was 350 Euros. Currently, the company occupies 330,000 square feet and it has 1000 employees who produce over 2 million helmets every year.
The helmets that the company made became more popular in 1992, and the growth prompted Arthur to expand the working area to 4000 square feet. He also employed 100 new employees including his brother Stephen, who became one of the managers. Two years later, the company penetrated the international market using the name FENGXING. The company also expanded its space to 18,000 square feet. In 1997, the company upgraded its systems. Some of the notable changes were on technology, factory and machinery. Additionally, the trademark of the company became MHR.
Solid Family Business
Arthur had a brother, Paul, who had successful businesses in the market. Paul joined the then MHR, and brought in his vast business experience. This move made the company to assume a solid family foundation, and it is the same change that has kept the company moving up to now.
MHR received an ISO9000 accreditation in 2000. This is the same period that the company owned and controlled in-house processes including plastic injection, painting, testing and other several production processes. All processes fell under the company’s new conceptions and technologies that helped it to make finished helmets from raw materials under the same roof.
The Company’s current position started with a change of name from MHR to JPH. The initials JPH represent the name JIANGMEN PENGCHENG HELMETS LTD. It took a multi million Dollar injection from Arthur and Paul for the company to have the transformation that included having a space of 330,000 square feet, 1000 employees, and a production turnover that yielded 2 million helmets in a year. JPH became LS2 in 2005. LS2 are initials for LIAO’S SYSTEMS in 2007. The company produces its own products, and it has a headquarter office in Barcelona.
Canadian and US markets
LS2 moved to explore the Canadian and American markets in 2010 after successfully showcasing its products in an Italian EICMA show. The company managed to set up a 30,000 square feet warehouse in Chicago. This move shows that LS2 products have become accepted in the global world.
