Mr Chan joined HKPC in 1969 and became the Executive Director in 1981 until his retirement in 1996, serving HKPC for 27 years. Mr Chan’s tenure was at the time when Hong Kong’s industrial development took off. He led and pioneered the deployment of various automated and advanced manufacturing facilities, technological advancement and management models supporting the industrial development of Hong Kong. Total Quality Management programme and ISO 9000 consultancy services in Hong Kong to assist companies adopting the Total Quality Management & the Just-In-Time modes of operation was launched during 1988-1991. In 1995, it pioneered the setting up of the Hong Kong’s first Rapid Prototyping Technology Centre to accelerate product development by using 3D printing technology. Moreover, under Mr Chan’s leadership, HKPC was able to integrate all its offices that were spread across the city, and house all its services and facilities under one roof at HKPC Building in Kowloon Tong since 1991. HKPC Building has also grown into an important hub for innovation and technology in Hong Kong with long-lasting impact and contribution.
HKPC pays its utmost respect to Mr Chan with a salute to his visionary leadership. It is dedicated to continue Mr Chan’s extraordinary legacy and offer up-to-date support to the Hong Kong industry for the goal of developing Hong Kong into an international innovation and technology centre.
