HKG Duty Free

Founded by the Khaledi family in 1977, the HK Group began as an electronic sales operation based in Laredo, Texas. Today, H.K. Global Trading, Ltd is a successful limited partnership run by brothers Ross and Shahram Khaledi. Their business ventures along the U.S./Mexican border include: electronics manufacturing and distribution; duty-free stores and supplies; freight forwarding, in bond, transportation, general construction and aviation support.

In addition, after globally distributing major electronic brands such as JVC, Sharp, Panasonic, AIWA and Toshiba for many years, in 1999 the company developed their own brand called "Gotech". Already, Gotech has established itself as a highly reliable name in the consumer electronics industry.
