Stainless Steel Service Centers for Precision Pressing

Metal One Hanwa (Hong Kong) Limited (MOHH) is headquartered in Hong Kong but has plants in Dongguan and Suzhou, China, specifically, Metal One Hanwa Precision (Dongguan) Limited (MOHPD) and Metal One Precision (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (MOPS). MOHH is a steel service center that processes and sells stainless steel strips and sheets for high-quality precision pressing.

Established in 2004 through the acquisition of the Hong Kong base of Hanwa Kozai Co., Ltd., this business investment affiliate is the successor to a business base with a record of more than 30 years of continuous commercial activity in southern China. The integrated management of the Chinese market was achieved when MOPS was turned into a wholly owned subsidiary in 2009, and the employees are united in working hard daily to establish even more confidence in the firm and create solid value chains.
The diverse customer base includes precision pressing operators whose end users are such IT appliance and office automation (OA) manufacturers as Sony Corporation; Seiko Epson Corporation; Canon Inc.; Ricoh Company, Ltd.; and Brother Industries, Ltd. as well as watchmakers that include Citizen Holdings, Co., Ltd.; Seiko Watch Corporation; and the Swatch Group Ltd. Manufacturers of automotive components and containers are a part of this customer base as well. Approximately 90% of the world's watches are said to be produced in south China, and there is a high likelihood that materials delivered by our company have been used in watchcases and bands made of stainless steel or titanium. The diversity of uses for stainless steel ranges from components for PCs and OA equipment, such as copy and fax machines and multifunction peripherals, to parts used inside cell phones, refrigerators, and washing machine drums.
We excel at processing stainless steel sheets, mainly coils, that are thin, hard, and have superior workability. The unit is ordinarily tonnes in the steel trade, but transactions in this industry are by the kilogram. Raw materials were mainly imported from Japan, but customers have become even more cost-conscious in the wake of the financial crisis that followed the collapse of Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., so we have put a system in place to offer broad responses with materials from China and other foreign manufacturers, depending on the request.
Part of China, but There Is a Border
The United Kingdom transferred sovereignty over Hong Kong to China on July 1, 1997, and the territory became a special administrative region of China, but this has taken the anomalous form of what is known as "one country, two systems" due to China's promise not to implement socialist policies for 50 years, until 2047. As such, a border exists between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, China, and foreigners need passports to transit, undergoing two customs checks both in China and Hong Kong. Nonmembers cannot play at golf courses in Hong Kong on weekends, so I head to Shenzhen to golf, carrying my passport along.
Two Sides of the Same Town
I have been working in Hong Kong for only a short time, about a year, but I feel that there are two sides to Hong Kong. One is of a spectacular modern country with a million-dollar nightscape of famous high-rise buildings standing in rows and where people and cuisine from around the world come together. The other is one imbued with the characteristic atmosphere of China in every nook and cranny. Just a few steps from the skyscrapers, the disorderly streets in the back alleys are alive with animated people, and you can sense the energy and vitality.
Foreigners, mainly Westerners, gather in the Soho district at night, giving it a Western ambience.
Hong Kong, Full Enjoyment of Fine Cuisine

Hong Kong is known as an epicurean town, and if you go to entertainment and shopping districts, such as Tsim Sha Tsui on the Kowloon side, Central on Hong Kong Island, or Causeway Bay, you will encounter shops where you can enjoy your fill of fine-quality seafood dishes. Also, there are restaurants in the fishing villages of Lei Yue Mun on the Kowloon side that will prepare your favorite seafood, still alive, to your specifications. To enjoy food stalls, go to Temple Street, also known as Men's Street, in Kowloon, where you can have cheap, delicious seafood dishes at tables and chairs set up along the road. Additionally, there are many shops that specialize in noodle and porridge dishes in Kowloon's old Mong Kok and Jordan sections, and you can enjoy noodles in a broth made with simmered beef ribs or porridge cooked together with curry or various other ingredients.
Afternoon tea is what gives you a sense of British colonial culture. Those looking for it will be happy with the service offered by hotels that provide scones, miniature sandwiches, and little cakes with tea.

Hong Kong's town markets, located throughout the city, are full of life.
