November 3, 2022

HONG KONG, Nov. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GigaCloud Technology Inc (Nasdaq: GCT) (“GigaCloud” or the “Company”), a pioneer of global end-to-end B2B ecommerce solutions for large parcel merchandise, today announced that GigaCloud has opened its first Malaysian office (the “Office”) in Muar, Johor, Malaysia, as part of a strategic initiative for optimizing regional supplier screenings and increasing the Company’s presence in Southeast Asia.

Following GigaCloud's Initial Public Offering (“IPO”) on August 18th, 2022, the Office marks another step of the Company’s global footprint expansion with the primary goal to give buyers on the Company’s B2B GigaCloud Marketplace (“GigaCloud Marketplace”) a greater selection of stock keeping units (“SKUs”) from vetted Malaysian suppliers. In addition, the Office is expected to increase GigaCloud’s visibility in Southeast Asia, facilitate suppliers’ familiarity with GigaCloud and further strengthen the Company’s growth and its international presence.

Malaysia continues to thrive as a manufacturing hub in Southeast Asia due to its strategic location, developed infrastructure, and business-friendly environment, further highlighting the importance for a strategic base. In addition, the Company believes that being close to industrial locations will allow GigaCloud to gather a stronger understanding of the region's offerings and the potential benefits that can be brought to the GigaCloud Marketplace.

This recent push of expanding global product diversity is aimed at increasing buyer platform traffic and sourcing opportunities for resellers in the United States, Japan, Germany, and the United Kingdom. GigaCloud's President, Iman Schrock, further emphasized its importance, "As the world's premier big and bulky B2B marketplace, it is key to continue expansion to solidify presence around the world as well as giving platform buyers maximum product flexibility. Malaysia has been on our radar for quite some time, and we are happy to finally have our feet on the ground in a major manufacturing hub."

Currently, the Office has six employees with a plan to grow to 15 within one year as GigaCloud Marketplace demand steadily increases.
