The event took place in the Jebsen & Co., Ltd. Group Headquarters in Causeway Bay by Mr. Hans Michael Jebsen, Chairman of the Group.

It all started in 1895 when the two cousins Jacob Jebsen and Heinrich Jessen sailed from Aabenraa to Hong Kong and co-founded Jebsen & Co., Ltd. as a shipping agency that quickly developed into a trading company. They started to trade indigo dye and since then have imported and traded other products such as Blue Girl beer and Porsche cars.

Hans Michael Jebsen, now the 4th generation at the head of this family company, explained that one of the keys to success was probably that the two cousins had good eyes to choose the right local partners. 

“Besides, the company is still a family company where many employees have worked over 30 or 40 years sometimes over two or three generations,” said Hans Michael Jebsen.

“Which shows that we can always start new businesses,” added Hans Michael Jebsen with a smile.
