About The Company
LS2 Helmet Company is a brainchild of Arthur Liao, and it started in a small rural house in 1990. Liao spent 350 Euros to start the company that focused in manufacturing helmets. He only managed to employ one employee, Peng Zheng, who still works for the company 20 years after its maiden operations.
Growth and expansion
The year 1992 saw Liao move to a 4000 square feet factory due to the growing demand for the helmets. The company employed 100 more people to handle its growing production. Notable among the new entrants was brother to Liao, Stephen Lio, who joined the management team.
LS2 managed to internationalize in 1994. The company used the trademark FENGXING, which had become a popular brand in its domestic market. The same year saw the company move to an 18000 square feet facility. Later in 1997, the trademark changed to MHR, and the company carried out modernization improvements to its technology, machinery and factory.
MHR became more of a family business in 1999 when Paul Liao, brother to Arthur, joined the company. Paul was a successful businessman, and he bought in immense wealth of business experience to MHR. This transformation gave the company a firm foundation that the company enjoys today.
The company received an ISO9000 accreditation on 2000. In this period, the company had managed to make great strides of improvement since it had an in-house ownership and control of all new technologies and conceptions of making helmets. The company could manage to carry out painting, composite treatment, plastic injection, testing and other processes. Essentially, the company could produce helmets from raw materials to finished products from a single point of production.
In 2005, MHR became JIANGMEN PENGCHENG HELMETS LTD after a multimillion Dollar investment from Paul and Arthur. The company had expanded its space to 330, 000 square feet. Additionally, it had employed 1000 employees and a turnover of over 2 million helmets annually.
Birth of LS2
The year 2007 witnessed JPM become LS2 (LIAO’S SYSTEMS). The move came from the need to move from the production of ODM and OEM products to production of the company’s own products. During the year, the company established its headquarters in Barcelona, Spain. Additionally, the company exhibited its helmets in Italy’s EICMA show. Subsequently, LS2 brand became internationally recognized.
LS2 penetrated the US market in 2010 after setting up a 30,000 square feet warehouse that stood in Chicago, Illinois. This was a major move that opened the company to the American and Canadian markets. The company still seeks to penetrate more in the global market.
