After high school, Peter Zhang (President of Global ZX Floor Doctor Limited) directly went into foreign trade for 5 years. This trade normally has nothing to do with the inspection work, but it led to his first connection with import/export business, and made him know clearly about the different desires of international buyer and seller. From 1995, Peter started to run flooring export business of his own in China, called “New Century company”. The export volume of this company was in the top three of local area since 2003.
