Andy KeWhen graduated from the college Hubei University of Education with Business English major in 2007, Mr. Andy Ke, Co-founder of Honkia Prototype Limited, came to Shenzhen, a young and dynamic city full of vitality in southern mainland China and adjacent to Hong Kong, to begin his employment career.

“During the studying in my college, I am gradually full of increasingly curiosity and interest for the outside world that is somehow different from the conventional way I know and perceive in my past time, such as the different ways of thinking and social cultures. At that time I have a strong desire and dream of global traveling to look out of the window and expand my horizons ” Said Mr. Andy.

For nearly one decade of working and living in Shenzhen, Mr. Andy served several private companies including one westerner owned as the English translator, assistant of general manager, sales representative and sales division manager, including the work of helping clean office, packaging goods, participation in international exhibition, negotiating with clients on behalf of company to sign contract, going to Indonesia for after sale service, involvement in technical discussion and analysis, building and managing sales division, etc.

Thanks to those years of interesting and impressive employment experience, Mr. Andy met and worked with lots of worldwide people and became good friends with some of them. More importantly, it let Andy clearly understand what the foreign customers exactly need, care and concern when they do business with Chinese suppliers and their business culture. The inrooted perceptions of bad quality, lagging technologies, hard communication, lack of integrity and responsibility for Chinese suppliers still made some people feel stressed to consider and try Made in China.

Meanwhile, Mr. Andy also experienced and understood how the general Chinese companies did and run their business, particularly their business culture and management philosophy. It was sometimes a challenge to get the strong support from the companies no matter how he did his job and the big efforts to try to improve. One frustrated point was that it was not easy for the decision makers in some companies to think rationally, forwardly and independently, and difficult for them to learn the new and innovative ideas.

After failure of the efforts to try to help the served companies, and the strong desire of providing something new and different to better help those who really want to purchase from China, and let the worldwide people have a more comprehensive perception and understanding for Made in China, Mr. Andy co-founded his own company Honkia Prototype Limited that specialized in rapid custom manufacturing of Rapid Prototyping and Low Volume Production in China.
