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 brand ish, 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.

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 brand ish:
Bamboo Chick Blinds
External Venetian Blinds (EVB)
Fabric Skylight Systems
Fabric Tensile Membranes

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.
Now here’s to hoping that we all get to return to Jewel Changi one day to see this in all its glory.
