This is reflected in our approach to every new project. Our offices in Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Dhaka and Istanbul are an important link between the design and retail branding companies in the Nine United family and their suppliers, but also in relation to new distribution possibilities. The companies in Asia were founded in 2005 with the purpose of purchasing and supplying different items, varying from hangtags, buttons and price stickers to window decoration, shop fixtures and packaging. Today they are also involved in sourcing furniture and home accessories for &Tradition, Frandsen and Verpan as well as products for Nine United Care.
