Jurken created the AB C business model to provide cost-effective access to experienced, on-the-ground professionals in China for US importers and exporters alike.
In this role, Jurken continues to work closely with clients across the United States and Mainland China. As an authority on how US companies should best approach supply chain management in Southeast Asia, he also speaks regularly at business functions, conferences and summits.

Shortly thereafter, he returned to open and manage a sales office in Hong Kong, and subsequently Mainland China, to oversee these clients for his family business.
