COMMEMORATION
Dr. CHAN Sing Chuk, Charles, BBS, JPA FORMER CHAIRMAN AND CO-FOUNDER OF THE GROUP
Commemoration-photo

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Continental co-founder, Dr. Chan Sing Chuk, Charles BBS, JP who passed away in January 2023, surrounded by his loved ones.

 

Dr. Chan was an iconic pioneer who, together with his wife and co-founder Ms. Shirley Cheng, inspired a modern approach to jewellery manufacturing. In 1975, Dr. Chan established the very first modern, standardized jewellery factory through the creation of Continental Jewellery (MFG) Ltd. With knowledge gained from the United States of America and alongside Ms. Cheng, he introduced ground-breaking techniques in jewellery production, including lost-wax casting and specially designed mass production assembly lines. The Continental model was a truly revolutionary concept at that time and changed the face of jewellery manufacturing. It was quickly recognized as a success and earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading jewellery manufacturers and exporters.

 

Although Dr. Chan is no longer with us, the examples that he set through his meticulous work ethic, self-discipline and considered wisdom continue to guide the Group’s management on a day-to-day basis. Everyone at Continental will endeavour to embrace his spirit, mirroring his pursuit of excellence and passion for business. His vision and heart will forever be with us.
