A true icon of our times, the industry leading HONG KONG CONCRETE COMPANY LTD is setting standards and redefining the industry, says its dynamic Managing Director, K.K.CHAN.
In 1990, Hong Kong Concrete Company Limited was jointly incorporated by Wai Chiu Concrete Company Limited and Macau Cement Manufacturing Company Limited. At present the substantial shareholders of Hong Kong Concrete Company Limited are Macau Cement Manufacturing Co., Ltd., TCC International Holdings Limited and China State Construction International Holdings Limited. From late 1980s onwards, Hong Kong Concrete Company Limited has been supplying the ready mixed concrete to the local construction industry proactively.
“In the late 80’s, China’s economic reform started to be on the track and infrastructure/cities urbanization rapidly changing the country’s appearance, resulting to ever increasing demand for concrete and market for construction materials rapidly expanding,” says K.K Chan, the company’s MD.
In the past 25 years the company has invested in the various cities such as Macau, Guangzhou and Beijing in form of joint venture or own subsidiary to produce ready-mixed concrete by erecting and operating commercial concrete batching plant. The company’s subsidiary (Beijing Litian Concrete Co., Ltd.) has participated into the concrete supply for some landmark projects including the National Stadium (Bird’s Nest) and the new Embassy of the United States in Beijing and Terminal 3 Beijing Capital International Airport.
However since 2008 amid the company’s substantial growth and development, the company has made new route plans by strategically rebalancing the investment and mainly focusing on Hong Kong’s local construction market and demand.
