We have continuously developed and brought to market “hit” new products within the China and international market. For instance, our Perlato Svevo series, launched in 1999, set a trend of using “beige yellow” color stone products in interior design. In 2006, we developed our patented technology to create an organic texture on porcelain surface to closely resemble natural stone surface, thus creating our Travertine series. In 2008, we introduced the Navona series, which applied our proprietary liquid rock technology to vitrified tiles to resemble navona travertine natural stones. Our Italian Wood series launched in 2011 features elegant wood-like surface textual with crystal granules embedded in between. These products rapidly gained acceptance among consumers, were frequently imitated by our peers, and remained on our best-selling product list for a number of years after their launch.

Our ability to continuously introduce successful new products to the market is significantly attributable to our commitment to product innovation and development. As of June 30, 2013, we have received a total of 95 issued patents in China, including 15 invention patents, 44 exterior design patents and 36 utility model patents. Backed by research and development teams of 204 members from China and Italy, we have launched more than 100 new products each year for the past three years. As a result of these efforts, with a total of 150 series and over 2,500 individual ceramic tile products as of June 30, 2013, our product portfolio is the most complete among the major industry players, according to the Frost & Sullivan Report, which allows us to meet different market demands and offers a one-stop solution to consumers shopping for ceramic tile products.

Our products have been recognized in China for their high quality and are sold internationally in 66 countries. Our largest export destinations include countries with high quality standards such as Canada, Australia and the United States. Among our current products, 111 have received the CE mark, signifying that they meet the requirements of the European Economic Area.
