In 1945, Omori Hsu was introduced to the lumber business. He partnered with some two colleagues to start their own business in forestry and logging. In 1952, with seven years of experience under his belt, he started his own Lumber business in Pingtung city. At the young age of 33 years old, Omori moved his family of 7 to Pingtung to manage 大森 “Da Shen” Lumber company. By the age of 47 years old, business expanded once again to a third lumber company named 宏森, or Green River Woods. By 1988, Omori had both sons helping expand his business and by the time Omori retired at the age of 70, his eldest son, Alex Hsu, had not only successfully taken over the factories in Taiwan but also set up his own furniture wholesale business in Canada and San Diego, which would later be named Winners Only. His second son, Steve Hsu, would begin a new chapter in the family history by starting his own business, Green River Woods Malaysia.
Omori Hsu, would retire to focus on his passion in life. He became a very devout buddhist, passing all his worldly possessions to the teachings of buddhism.
