Theoriginal “H. J. Unkel” company was established by Mr. Hermann Heinrich JohannHannibal Unkel in 1925 in Shanghai and shortly afterwards World War II brokeout and made life very difficult for the fledgling young company. But wesurviced albeit with difficulties and problems. The Shanghai office wasre-opened in the 1950s but had toclose down but another office was opened in Hong Kong where Mr. Unkel reestablishedrelationships with quite a lot of his old Shanghai friends. During the 1970s westarted to grow – geographically: Offices were set up in Bangkok/Thailand,inSingapore, in Kuala Lumpur/Malaysia, In Jakarta/Indonesia, Manila/Philippinesand in HoChi Minh City in Vietnam – and, of course, in CHINA: Shanghai, Foshan, Beijing, Qingdao,Wuhan, Chongqing, Xiamen, Chengdu, Xian.
From thebeginning we were involved in sales– sales of chemicals, instruments, and machines.Our far-flung activities made HJU interesting for many international suppliers –after all, the parts of Asia where we are active are all places where Chinesebusinessmen are the backbone of their economies, and in many cases
successfulsales to a factory in place A led to an introduction to their friends or relativesin country B.
Hence,for HJU, one of the most important aspects in business is to have good and reliablepeople working together reliably and successfully. And being well introduced andhaving a solid reputation in in so many markets makes our suppliers andprincipals satisfied and happy and in many cases creating long-lastingfriendships.
Theever-changing developments in technology and chemicals entail ever more interdependencebetween manufacturers and customers – and ourselves! We need to stayabreast of new manufacturing techniques and developments all the time and tothis end we have to send more and more of our people overseas to receive informationabout new processes and products which will be of keen interest to our customerswho are always interested in anything new which they may utilize in their ownmanufacturing processes.
All thisis making HJU a company always “on the go” and searching for new techniques andnew technologies for the benefit of our friends – our customers.
翁开尔公司由Mr. HermannHeinrich Johann Hannibal Unkel于1925年在上海成立。不久之后，第二次世界大战爆发，让这个没有经验的年轻公司举步维艰。当时还是克服困难，生存了下来。上海办事处于二十世纪五十年代重新开业，之后不得已关闭，继而在香港重新开业。在上海时翁开尔先生与许多上海的老朋友建立很好的合作关系。二十世纪七十年代，翁开尔开始了区域上的扩张：分别于泰国曼谷，新加坡，马来西亚的吉隆坡，印尼的雅加达，菲律宾的马尼拉和越南的胡志明成立分公司，包括中国的上海，佛山，成都等城市。
