Chen Hsong Holdings Limited (“Chen Hsong” or the “Group”; HKEX: 00057), one of the largest manufacturers of injection moulding machines in the world, has been keeping a close watch on the development of COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak. Recently, the Group has teamed up with Chiang Chen Industrial Charity Foundation to donate a total of 87,300 face masks and 5,440 protective goggles to the Hospital Authority (“HA”) to support the anti-pandemic measures undertaken by the HA.
Chen Hsong has always been eager to fulfil its social responsibilities, and hopes to make an effort to contribute to the anti-COVID-19 measures. As one of the largest manufacturers of injection moulding machines in the world, Chen Hsong produces The SPARK series of all-electric injection moulding machines and MK6 Servo Drive injection molding machines, which are the key equipment for manufacturing anti-COVID-19 medical supplies such as protective goggles and drip heads for nucleic acid testing. Since the beginning of this year, the Group has received urgent orders from many manufactures of medical products. To render support to the anti-COVID-19 efforts, the Group has expedited its production in full swing since the resumption of production in February, and adopted the state-of-the-art moulding technology to secure and speed up the supply of medical items.
Ms Lai Yuen CHIANG, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Chen Hsong, said, “The virtue of ‘when one place suffers misfortune, aid will come from all sides’ has been a good tradition of our Chinese nation since ancient times. After the outbreak of COVID-19, Chen Hsong has attached great importance to the anti-COVID-19 measures and determined to fulfill our social responsibilities and corporate commitments. The Group would like to pay tribute to all medical workers who have continuously served at the front-line during this period. We hope the supplies donated by us will provide practical support for the medical workers and relieve their urgent needs.”
