What We Do

Star 360 Holdings Pte Ltd is the foremost active lifestyle and fashion brand purveyor in Asia Pacific. Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Singapore, Star 360 Holdings is a global lifestyle group with wholly owned subsidiaries in 16 markets with over 1,000 employees, representing world class brands such as American Eagle Outfitters, Cole Haan, Birkenstock, MBT, ASICS and Naturalizer. It owns and operates more than 100 specialty stores and distributes to more than 12,500 points-of-sale worldwide.

Our Beginnings

The Group is founded by CEO Andy Chaw. With over 20 years of experience in regional sourcing, design, distribution in the retail and wholesale industry, Andy has built an extensive network in the footwear business and is one of the key players in this region. In 2010, Andy won the coveted Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Singapore for demonstrating high resilience and adaptability as an entrepreneur and achieving remarkable growth for the business.

For the past decade, he has built the business upon the core values of passion, integrity and excellence and he continues to lead the Group with these principles. He is known for his sheer tenacity as an astute businessman, and also as a leader driven by passion and a hunger to succeed. As an avid sportsman who represented Singapore in his youth, Andy continues to scale greater heights and set new records in the wholesale and retail playing field.

Business Development

The year 2012 marked a new era for the company. In a move that made headlines and caused waves in the industry, Star 360 Holdings made the global acquisition of MBT, the original physiological footwear brand. Singapore is now the headquarter for the internationally renowned footwear brand and the Group continues to manage the brand's international growth and expansion.

Merely two years later in 2014, the Group made another quantum leap forward in business development. Heliconia Capital Management and Pavilion Capital, two units of Singapore state investor - Temasek Holdings (Private) Ltd, took stakes in the company. This was a significant nod to the Group's progress and also a thrilling prelude to new beginnings for Star 360 Holdings as a global player.

The Group was named "Star 360" to be seen as a guiding light and a shining star in the industry. "360" represents the Group's conviction to be an all-rounded player that pushes boundaries every single day. Having had its humble beginnings based solely in the wholesale business, the Group has since grown into an omni-channel powerhouse with all-encompassing core businesses in the wholesale, retail and e-commerce markets.

 

Wholesale

Star 360 Holdings' strengths lie in its wide network of connections in the industry, its discerning eye in procuring products to serve niche market segments and its far-reaching distribution and logistics hubs which translate into faster, more reliable and cost-efficient solutions for the market.

The Group has an established network of strategic global distribution points in some of the world's liveliest hubs including USA, China, Hong Kong and Spain. With wholesale as its core business, its unique approach to retail coupled with rich experience and expertise has played an instrumental role in supporting partnering brands to boldly enter new markets and dynamically enhance their brand presence.

As testament to its sheer finesse in its core competency of wholesaling, the Group holds exclusive wholesale distribution rights to Nike Accessories for markets in the region, as well as global wholesale distribution rights to MBT.

Retail

As a retailer with a singular focus on the best of style and quality, Star 360 Holdings carefully curates and partners only the world's leading active lifestyle and fashion brands to provide customers with unparalleled shopping experiences. Attesting to its position as the region's retail authority, the Group counts a staggering 12,500 points-of-sale across multiple continents under its retail arm. With its finger perpetually on the pulse of the rapidly-changing trends in the retail industry, the Group has fast become the partner of choice for brands looking to make their mark in Asia and beyond.

The Group also developed multi-brand concept stores such as Star 360, STARTHREESIXTY Junior and Urban 360 as definitive extensions to its retail portfolio. Present regionally in countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong, these concept stores attest to the Group's expertise and retailing know-how in bringing the best of sports and active lifestyle together.

 

E-Commerce

With its eye on the rapidly changing retail landscape and leveraging on its hybrid capabilities, Star 360 Holdings is also expanding its reach into the e-commerce sector. Being driven by the larger aim of enhancing customers' shopping experiences and increasing convenience, it is also continuously fuelled by its goal of integrating offline and online experiences in line with today's buying behaviour.

Against this backdrop, the Group marked its foray into online expansion with the launch of online retail portals 360shoes.com and mbt.com, engaging a new generation of savvy consumers. The portal offers seamless integration with multiple delivery and payment options, along with dedicated online customer service consultants for cohesive and fulfilling shopping experiences even beyond the Group's brick-and-mortar stores.
