Founder of [Balama Prima], Mr. H.N. Choi was born in Cambodia. He returned to China for education in 1955. From 1955-1963 he studied in the ‘Hunan Teacher-Training Middle School’ and then ‘Hunan University’. Nominated by a university professor, he started working in the ‘Railway Science and Technology College’ right after his graduation from the railway construction faculty of the ‘Changsha Railway College’ (now known as ‘Central South University’) in 1963. While on his way back to Cambodia in 1974, intense warfare in Cambodia caused him to change his plans and stay in Hong Kong ever after.
Since the ‘Reform and Open Policy’ was put forward by Mr. Deng Xiao Ping in 1978, the construction industry became the first sector to start developing in China. Recognizing this great opportunity, Mr. Choi quitted his work in Hong Kong and started his own business in China. He established the ‘San Kin Enterprise Company’ that sold construction material and equipment in 1979 and went on to provide great support to the construction of the first lot of skyscrapers in China by importing over 100 sets of prestigious European tower cranes within five years.
From 1993-1995 [Balama Prima] took the lead in organizing internationally renowned enterprises to participate in the tendering process of the remarkable ‘Yangtze River Three Gorges Project – Construction Solutions for the Main Dam’, and recieved the honor of being recognized as an excellent solution among all tenderers. Four sets of 360 t/h concrete mixing plants were successfully imported, and a service department was set up in Yichang. This service department not only helped produce over half of the concrete mix needed for the Main Dam, but they also provided follow up services for the equipment. All these factors served as important pre-requisites for the Main Dam project to be completed on time and in good quality.
Since entering the 21st Century, great effort has been put into the development of the new technological environmental protection and renewable energy business.
Enthusiastically giving support to the construction industry of China, Mr. Choi always stays in the frontline of technological innovation, keeping pace with the reform and open process of the country. Striving to be an idealistic businessman for over 30 years, Mr. Choi is proud of his career and hopes to continue playing a meaningful role as an effective cog in the resurrection of the country.
