Mr. Lui Chi – Hang, co-founder of Aust-Phils Aluminum International, Inc., was born in Guandong, China on October 17, 1932. He was left as orphan as his father passed away when he was six, and his mother passed away on the following year; a direct result of the Sino – Japanese war.
Without parents, he was brought up by his grandmother, who passed away at a ripe age of 103. Mr. Hang, as everyone knows him, never had any formal education. His schooling years was interrupted at grade three due to the war. To escape what was then war torn China, together with his grandmother and sister, all escaped to Hong Kong in 1949.
The Meeting of the Minds
It all began with two men accidentally crossing each other’s paths in a luxurious lobby of a deluxe hotel in Manila. Two men both gifted with a discerning nose for business and an insatiable taste for challenges…
Mr. Deniel M. Nielsen, an Australian developer, chanced upon Mr. Lui Chi Hang, a Chinese businessman in the Philippines, in the latter’s establishment in Manila Midtown Hotel. In the course of this meeting, business transactions transpired in an unconventional manner putting each man’s honesty, honor and integrity to a test. The results of that test had been more than positive! Moreover, this business relationship in the onset blossomed into a friendship that bordered on trust and confidence. And that same trust and confidence paved the way to a mutual interest in conducting a business venture.
The Aust-Phils Tradition
True enough, his leadership and management skills were put to the utmost test during economic crunch that hit the entire nation, middle of 1998. Tourism, production, manufacturing, export and other industries including construction yielded downward slopes in their performance. Companies began folding up left and right without the exception of construction companies. Aust-Phils Aluminum International, Inc. however, under the firm grip of Mr. Wai, refused to follow this trend.
To Mr. Wai, weathering the storm in 1998 did not make him sit back and relax. He did not put a stop to the learning and the struggling. In his mind, another crisis, may hit the country and this time with a bigger blow, “It is better to be prepared for the worst prospect.”, Mr. Wai states when asked about his work perspective.
