I'm a title. ​Click here to edit me.

Incorporated in 1977, Lip Hing Metal Manufacturing (Huizhou) Limited (Lip Hing) designs and manufactures different kinds of moulds, provides professional stamping processing, and processes metalwork with high-precision machining equipment.

Lip Hing has been fabricating semi-finished metal parts for decades and has obtained ISO 9001 certificate in 2008. In 2017, it planned to expand into medical devices market and explored the use of its fabricated metal parts for medical devices.

Although decades of fabricating semi-finished metal parts, Lip Hing knows little about medical devices, much less about ISO 13485. In this rapidly expanding landscape, re-design of the plant’s layout including production lines leaves Lip Hing challenges and anxieties breaking into this brand new sector.
