Fung Keong Rubber Manufactory Co. – participation in Chinese Manufacturers’ Association exhibitions
HF: From 1938 to 1974, the Chinese Manufacturers’ Association of Hong Kong (CMA) organized 31 exhibitions of locally made products, to promote the industrial products manufactured in Hong Kong to local citizens and overseas buyers.
One of those regularly exhibiting was Fung Keong Rubber Manufactory Co. founded in 1925 by a Nanyang Chinese Mr. Fung Keong to manufacture and sell rubber shoes and rubber products. Fung Keong Rubber Manufactory was a regular exhibitor in the early exhibitions, and participated in the first one in 1938.
At that time Fung Keong’s booth was located in room 2 of Hall One, and won a special award for outstanding industrial products. The company set up exhibition booths in every Exhibition showing its rubber products, using the Tower brand as the identifying trademark for its booths, until the 14th Exhibition of Hong Kong Products in 1956 when the company no longer participated regularly in the exhibitions.
