If you had shopped for roller blinds and curtains in the past, the name ‘GM2000’ may ring a bell. GM2000 Pte Ltd is one of Singapore’s construction and fabrication companies, and also a listed supplier on the Builders.sg directory.
Not only do they specialise in roller blinds and curtains, but their scope has also expanded over the years to include the creation of soft window furnishings and exterior architectural elements.
GM2000 Pte Ltd was established in 1999 by Mr Teo Hee Lai, who hails from Singapore’s first generation of builders. It initially started out as a trading company and supplier for soft window furnishings, slowly building up their product range and production capabilities over the years.
In 2002, GM2000 became the first company in Singapore to manufacture Smoke Curtains, earning it the ISO9001 accreditation. It also launched their in-house window furnishing brand i-shades.
Their other achievements include the introduction of Intelligent Automation Systems, Louvre Blinds, and Zip Blinds to their product portfolio, the founding of GM2000 Impex Pte Ltd (for stone materials and stone surface treatment products) and in-house lifestyle brandish, and becoming the sole distributor for WAREMA products.
GM2000 Pte Ltd does not work alone for their endeavours; for every project they take on, they partner up with dedicated specialists who ensure that their products do not fall below standard.
GM2000 Pte Ltd is currently under the care of Mr Teo’s son, Mr Ian Teo, who had grown up under his father’s wing and dedicated himself to GM2000’s mission since his youth.
The company’s current plans include the continuation of international partnerships and bringing in eco-friendly and sustainable materials and products.
What Does GM2000 Do?
GM 2000 Pte Ltd started out as a dealer for roller blinds and curtains, and have since added design-and-build services to their portfolio. They also customise high-quality soft window furnishings using their automated fabrication machinery.
As a result, GM2000’s products are durable, versatile, and aesthetically pleasing, and they can be crafted for both interiors and exteriors.
Their product range does not just include locally-made pieces; GM2000 is in active partnership with several international retailers to import furnishings such as External Venetian Blinds from Germany, ZipTrak from Australia, and Shy Zip system from Japan. A window furnishing made well, the company believes, can properly regulate temperature and control the amount of sunlight entering a space.
Here are some of GM2000’s 60+ wares and services, including the firm’s in-house brandish:
- Bamboo Chick Blinds
- Roman Blinds
- Timber Blinds
- Vertical Blinds
- Vision Blinds
- Zip Blinds
- External Venetian Blinds (EVB)

Does this look familiar? This is one of GM2000’s biggest projects – the array of 20 gigantic skylights on Level 5 of Jewel at Changi. The entire set-up was customised by the firm, from the components to the lighting systems.
That is one of GM2000’s strengths – the ability to survey, and create the right piece for their client, whether that piece would be used for the structure’s interior or exterior.
Now here’s to hoping that we all get to return to Jewel Changi one day to see this in all its glory.
GM2000’s services include residences too; homeowners who do not scrimp on quality can turn to the company for premium window and soft furnishings. To ensure their clients get the best of what they paid for, GM2000 works closely with architects and designers to form bespoke solutions that fulfil their clients’ creative needs.
This is even as COVID-19 heavily impacts the construction industry; during these tough times, GM2000 has stayed dedicated to their clients, to their employees, and to their mission of becoming a leading manufacturer-cum-supplier of high-quality interior and exterior building products.
