Background: HKI Group

香江國際集團創立於一九六九年,以香港為基地逐步發展為一間多元化集團。由於貫徹穩健發展的方針,集團的業務範圍不斷擴張,並深入世界市場。集團的運作以分散經營爲原則,聯營公司各自擁有獨立體系的附屬公司,自行處理日常業務。紡織製衣及銷售是集團內歷史最悠久的業務,憑藉優異的品質、創新的用料、流行的設計和具競爭力的訂價,在歐、美、日等主要市場佔一重要席位

Based in Hong Kong, HKI Group was established in 1969 and has developed into a diversified corporation. The dedication to solid growth as a guiding principle has helped the Group to successfully broaden its business scope and penetrate into global markets. Decentralization is the mode of operation, with associates and their subsidiaries managing their daily operations independently. Garment manufacturing and retailing is the Group’s earliest undertaking. By virtue of superb quality, innovative materials, popular designs and competitive prices, the Group has gained a key niche in Europe, America, Japan and other major markets.
