HARTING: celebrating 25th anniversary in Hong Kong and 15th in China

HARTING Hong Kong, founded in 1988, has been the Asian headquarter for 25 years to support all HARTING subsidiaries in Asia. In 1998, HARTING has entered the Chinese market by opening the production plant in Zhuhai. HARTING has mainly focused on the factory automation, transportation, renewable energy, power transmission and machinery markets. HARTING is proud to be the first global connector manufacturer in the China, awarded the China Compulsory Certification (CCC). 
HARTING has been expanding rapidly its sales network in China over the past few years and operates now in Hong Kong, Zhuhai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Xiamen, Changsha, Wuhan, Hangzhou, Shanghai, Suzhou, Nanjing, Chengdu, Xian, Zhengzhou, Qingdao, Tianjin, Beijing, Shenyang, Changchun and Taipei. 
The current Zhuhai manufacturing site, with an initial investment of more than $16 million, is the supply chain, logistics, training, research and development centre for Asia. Production in Zhuhai started with simple assembly and now covers full-line production of connectors’ hoods and housings, backplane connector, backplane design and solution. HARTING Zhuhai manufactures a wide range of products with the latest technology in die casting, zinc casting, injection molding, CNC tapping and milling, surface coating, SMT and automatic assembly machines. HARTING Zhuhai supplies and serves customers with mezzanine connectors, micro card edge connectors, D-sub connectors, mini coax connectors, industrial cable assemblies, telecom and medical cable assemblies, wire harnesses, heavy-duty connectors, backplanes, solenoids, die casting and injection moulding. The certified research and development centre can provide local product management for customer-specific product design and can contribute to an increased number of local key projects. 
HARTING not only cares about business development but also places great emphasis on environmental protection, employee safety and local communities. By integrating the water treatment facility in the grinding machine, the water used to clean this machine is 100 per cent recycled. The water recycling facility protects the environment by minimising water consumption to an extent beyond Chinese Government requirements. HARTING’s concern for employee well-being goes beyond legal safety requirements. The air-filtering system on the aluminium melting furnace provides a more comfortable working environment by extracting the hot air and fumes.
HARTING is highly committed to China community. Since 2007, HARTING has been providing scholarships to Jinan University and since 2012 to JinDing No 1 Primary School in Zhuhai. HARTING will be expanding company donations in the future and the technology group is dedicated to flourish potential engineers or technology innovators.
In Hong Kong, a MoU had been signed in 2012 between the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and HARTING Technology Group to strengthen the collaboration of research and developments in advanced Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technologies and Internet of Things (IoT) solutions. Through the partnership, PolyU will focus the research to promote worldwide standardisation, testing and certification of RFID.
Reaching its China 15th, Hong Kong 25th anniversary, HARTING is confident to push future growth in the region.
