The Cathay Associates
It was founded in 1963, as one of the pioneering companies in opening China to the world. In 1970, exports to Europe, Japan and the United States of products manufactured in China and Taiwan.
Our founder, Mr. Michael Cheng, joined the American market in 1975, after associating with companies in the region for the management and representation of his products.
The contacts and relationships had to be very solid due to the distance. Culture and communications were the biggest challenges of that time, specifically for custom product manufacturing in rapidly growing markets.
Our vision was clear and defined:
“Connect China with the world through a philosophy of quality and integrity, fundamental elements to generate international trust.”
