Our company was founded in 2000. We specialize in game consoles, accessories and tablets. To meet the urgent demand of a world health crisis, we leveraged our experience and partnerships to provide PPE in 2020. 

We provide stock for larger chain stores & department stores (regular orders 10,000 – 20,000 pieces daily), other distributors and wholesalers, and small businesses (regular orders 20 – 100 pieces). All freight is included in the quote, we prepay freight.

No order is too small or too large. We are dedicated to establishing and maintaining excellent relationships with our clients and partners.
