Established in 1986, the company has grown into a reputable trading company dealing with branded electronics items such as audio-video products, hi-fi, consumer appliances and video games.
In 2016 Uptron started to diversify out of electronics and into the F&B industry by partnering with Morozoff Japan to bring their confectionary to Singapore and SEA. Since then, Uptron has continue to expand in the industry by bringing some of Japan most popular brand e.g. Suage, Pronto, Unaemon, Paletas and Nigiri Chojiro under Uptron F&B portfolio.
With rapid globalisation and the technological advances, competition in the import & export business in progressively keener and tougher. Companies that rely on old ways and do not work smarter will get left behind. Faced with the prospects of increasing competition, tougher retail conditions and yet generally higher overheads, Uptron is actively looking globally into new markets to expand its share of business.
We strongly believe that we are well equipped to meet the challenges and move progressively forward,
