The inspiring trip
The Starting Point of Shaigoo Studios was when Kasper Sonesson (Founder) visited China the first time at the age of 14 with his father, Thomas. Thomas has been working with manufacturing in China since 1999 for his own business. Now he wanted to introduce Kasper to the big opportunity that China and the Chinese platform of manufacturers could offer.
That inspirational trip lit a spark for Kasper to explore this opportunity on his own. After finishing High School, he bought a one-way ticket to Shenzhen, south China, to start his entrepreneurial journey.
The Meaning of “Shaigoo”
After 6 months of local internship and being a learning student of product manufacturing, Kasper founded the company Shaigoo.
Shaigoos name is a combination of the Chinese words 超过 (Chāoguò) meaning “Go Beyond” and 差异(Chāyì) meaning “difference”. These two words were going to be the foundation of Shaigoos’ way to operate. To go beyond and make a difference for our customers.
The Start of Shaigoo Studios
The word spread at home in Sweden that there was a Swedish team, managing product development, and manufacturing in Asia. After a lot of customer inquiries, Kasper decided to create an all-in-one platform for this huge demand of supply-chain solutions.
Together with a well-experienced Chinese team and Swedish Management, Shaigoo Studios was created. A full supply-chain agency providing professional services within product sourcing, manufacturing, design, quality inspection, warehousing, and logistics.
Today Shaigoo has offices in China, Hong Kong, Sweden, and production locations in China, Bangladesh, Southeast Asia, and eastern Europe.
We have built our business on the basis of “learning by doing” and with an extraordinarily skilled team where we all have the same burning interest for our customer’s challenges. That’s what unites us.
Since early 2020 during the Corona Pandemic, we saw a critical situation in the world where it was an urgent demand for hospital supplies.
Together with well-experienced partners in the medical industry, we have started to distribute personal protective equipment and medical products to hospitals around the world.
