Dear colleagues, partners and suppliers,
We hope that you, your family, and friends remain healthy and safe as we continue to navigate the health and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19. I can’t agree more that your well-being is our highest priority. All of you are most important for Shuanglong. Shuanglong has become the best partner. This has never been proven more critical than now. We want to express our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to each of you for supporting us this year with such patience, dedication, and professionalism.
Through history, we have experienced and successfully navigated through periods of SARS in 2008, centered around our people-first mindset and our commitment to partners. With that background in mind, we entered 2020 as a well-functioning group prepared to mobilize our resources and react quickly to the pandemic.
We undertook all the enterprise-wide efforts to keep our people safe and our facilities operating so we could service our clients. Our front-line drivers, warehouse and producing staff have shown incredible dedication and commitment to company and to serving our clients. This group represents the power of S&L. Much appreciated to each and every one of you! Even during the most difficult times, our sales achievements are gratifying.
Business and production stagnated and suffered setbacks at the beginning. However, through the efforts of our staff in S&L, the annual output value increased in the second and third quarters, fully making up for the losses in the first quarter caused by the epidemic.
The New Year's Day of 2021 may be over, but for Chinese people, it's not considered past unless having family reunion, eating spring rolls, watching Spring Festival Gala and fireworks. That's why the Spring Festival holiday is a bit longer.
S&L Holidays are arranged from 2nd Feb.2021 to 21st Feb.2021. Please allow us to reunite with our families and share the joy and the hard for this year.
In the NEW YEAR of 2021, SHUANGLONG Group hopes to serve our partners with new environment and more excellent technology. So we can achieve a win-win situation with your interests.
Our new office building is under construction. After more than half a year of preparation and foundation building, cement pouring of the first floor finally started. Just like our technology, it has been improved for a long time as solid and reliable. Brand-new buildings are just around the corner.
In closing, I want to thank each of you for the incredible support you have shown us, and for your understanding and flexibility during this truly unsettling time.
As always, our family wishes you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season and all the best in the New Year.
President & Chief Executive Officer
