Early Plastic Industry in Hong Kong
My late father, YOUNG Sze Kuen,( also known as Anthony Norman ) joined ICI Hong Kong in the late 1930s and early 1940s. Then he, and my late mother Annie Lam Young ,started a company named Yuen Hing Hong & Co. Ltd. (YHH) in the 1940s.
YHH was Sole Agent for Distiller's Company Plastics Group of London. I found a Hong Kong English newspaper clipping without date (approx 1947) .."Visiting the Colony is Mr. W.E. Aitkens of the Distillers Company...who on Tuesday evening entertained the Managing Director of Yeun ( Yuen ) Hing Hong and Co Ltd at the Tai Tung Resturant where discussiions were held regarding proposals concerning future sales of plastic raw materials."
Will appreciate if anyone have any linkage with our Hong Kong Company. They had given numerous parties at our old home in 19 South Bay Rd.,Repulse Bay Hong Kong..if anyone have any connections, will appreicate links...
Thank you Cecilia Young
