Company Background

Hengan International Group is a publicly traded unit of the Hengan Group, China's largest sanitary goods maker, which was founded in 1985. Hengan International listed in Hong Kong in 1998. The company, which deals mainly in disposable diapers and sanitary napkins, competes fiercely with Britain's Procter & Gamble and Japan's Unicharm in China. Its strength lies in its extensive marketing network across China. It has 300 sales offices and has signed up more than 3,000 sales agents. It makes its products in more than 40 locations, including the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

Taking advantage of its price competitiveness, backed by a large economy of scale, the company also exports its goods to Southeast Asia, Africa and other regions. Relying on its branding power, it sells a wide range of products, including hand soap for children and detergent.

Group Chairman Sze Man Bok is said to have operated a clothing maker but entered the sanitary goods market, which used to be monopolized by a state-run enterprise.
