Gerard Er
GE Lines

GE Lines has come a long way since its establishment 10 years ago when it lacked startup capital, network and branding.

Taking advantage of Singapore's well-developed port infrastructure and geographic location, GE Lines is today a one-stop logistics solutions provider. It offers services such as sea/air freight forwarding, custom clearance, warehousing distribution, right down to door-to-door delivery. It is also equipped to handle dangerous chemicals.

GE Lines has been profitable every year since the company started in 2006.

Pauline Ng
Founder and managing director

It was an "accident" that led to the creation of Porcelain which offers skincare treatments and products in 2009.

Ms Ng was helping her mother to re-start her facial business when she spotted a gap between what the industry was providing, and what consumers really wanted. That gave birth to Porcelain. "No two skins are the same" guides Porcelain in creating customised treatments.

Over the short seven years since its establishment, Porcelain has grown from a simple two-bedder treatment spa tucked away on the 2nd floor of a shophouse to a well-known skincare treatment establishment with its own line of custom formulated products. It hires about 45 employees.
