SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, 2016-Jun-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Amcal today launched a Chinese language version of its website. This will be managed in partnership with Azoya – a local distributor and Chinese e-commerce specialist providing on-the-ground customer support in China.
The new Chinese language site marks the first time Amcal has entered the international retail market from its Australian base.
Products on the new Chinese language site will be sourced from Australia. All fulfilment operations will remain in Australia.
“This is a very important milestone in Amcal’s history and we are proud that this great Australian brand will now be launched internationally, starting with China. Sigma recognised the rapid growth in e-commerce in China, but also the demand for quality Australian pharmacy branded products including vitamins, beauty accessories and a range of other health and wellbeing products. That’s why the company has taken this landmark step to launch this site and offer customer support in China. We have chosen Chinese-based Azoya Group as our partner to launch this venture, due to their local knowledge and expertise in cross-border eCommerce in China.” – Gary Dunne, Sigma Chief Operating Officer.
Don Zhao, co-founder and Executive Director of Azoya group commented:
“The launch of the Amcal China site will make Amcal one of the leading overseas retailer brands in the China market, and we are confident to make that happen. Also, it’s been a great experience working with the great team from Sigma. We look forward to further and deeper cooperation in the future.”
The site offers a wide range of health, beauty and wellbeing products from a range of different suppliers, as well as a selection of Sigma’s own Pharmacy Care branded products.
“We believe that China could be just the first of a targeted international expansion plan for Amcal and Sigma leveraging our existing partnerships. Australia has a great reputation when it comes to the quality of our health, wellness and beauty products.” Gary Dunne said.
