Alibaba Group companies'  growth since 2010 led to a rapid expansion of premises for the workforce. The Taobao campus in Hangzhou, built in 2011, is an expression of the founder's vision to offer  a world class  facility to match the best of global companies.   HWS and Haworth products were chosen for ergonomic seating supply to more than 50,000 Alibaba employees. The local, Shanghai large- scale  manufacturing capability and Haworth's quality standards  were key factors for Alibaba.
