In 2003, we started an intensive research and development program to design an elevator control system. Our first product, SCH-168, mainly used for passenger lifts. We started with local sales and then expanded to the Asia Pacific Region, including Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. Subsequent growth took us to Dubai and Kuwait in the Middle East and then Nigeria in Africa.
