Company Profile

The history of Dah Chung Industrial Co. Ltd.

The late Mr. Yin Chi Chung founded his hand sewing needle factory in Tsingtao, China, which was the first in China.

The company has attracted enough attention among other major suppliers of hand sewing needles in the world. William Prym of Germany came to visit the plant in May 1935. William Prym has remained to be the largest needle supplier in the world as of today.

The Shanghai Needle Factory and office was founded.

Mr. Yin moved to Hong Kong with his family and some of his fellow workers and he set up Dah Chung Industrial Co. Ltd. in Shaukiwan, Hong Kong. The factory employed more than 1000 workers then, and has slowly built up the export market throughout the years. The company is one of the earliest industries in Hong Kong and has participated and witnessed the growth of Hong Kong.

Both the Tsingtao and Shanghai factories became state owned, and have remained to be the two largest needle manufacturers in China as of today.

Dah Chung has set up office and production in Taichung, Taiwan. Our subsidiary company, Screws and Fastener (HK) Co., Ltd. was founded to import industrial tools to the Hong Kong industry.

In the early 80's, Dah Chung has jointly developed its existing land with Cheung Kong Holdings Ltd in Hong Kong to provide 416 apartment units in Shaukiwan. The main production line was moved to Shenzhen. During the same period joint venture production companies were set up in Beijing, Tsingtao and Wuxi.
