Star Prototype – Not Your Average Job Shop – HAXLR8R. Zach writes –
Nestled in a quiet neighborhood on the outskirts of Zhongshan is a group of buildings that looks similar to the surrounding factories except that they proudly display an English name: Star Prototype.
I had the pleasure of visiting with Gordon Styles, the owner of Star Prototype and getting a tour of the facilities as well as being entertained by Gordon’s finely tuned British self-depreciating humor.
Entering into the factory I was greeted by something you rarely see in China: a smiling guard and a happy, bouncing golden retriever begging me to take the tennis ball from its slobber infested mouth. It was about the dirtiest thing I saw during the entire visit.
