A Steadfast Color TV Dream Began with a Football Match Broadcast

Mr. Stephen Wong (Huang Hongsheng) embarked on an unwavering destiny with TVs, after being inspired by a mass campus TV screening of a football match and writing a dissertation on black-and-white TV design during his university years. Before graduating from university, he swore to establish a successful company like Sony and Panasonic.

Sustaining Passion with Pure Determination and Perseverance

From dealing with the import and export of electronic products, to working in the TV remote control production segment and finally entering the broader electronics manufacturing industry, Mr. Wong put his life savings on the line and experienced many ups and downs throughout his entrepreneurial journey. However, with a fervent enthusiasm for entrepreneurship and belief in the mantra of “don’t wait for the right opportunity; create it,” he took a leap of faith into a TV industry that was still lacking high-tech resources at the time.

Establishing SKYWORTH in 1988

Along with China’s economic reform and development of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone in the 1980s, Mr. Wong launched SKYWORTH and grew the business. Since then, the company has transformed into a pioneer in big-screen AIoT, leading the development of the TV industry in China.

Pondering the Development Journey

As Nelson Mandela once said: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” With this determined mindset, Mr. Wong considered how he could uphold the Shenzhen spirit of “dare to venture, dare to try, dare to be the first in the world,” and lead SKYWORTH on an extraordinary business and innovation journey, overcoming challenges ahead. Most importantly, he contemplated how SKYWORTH could fulfill people’s demands for greater quality of life.

Be Innovative, Be Bold

Committed to pursuing high-quality standards, Mr. Wong persevered and led SKYWORTH to stand out for its innovations. Throughout his career, Mr. Wong has seen the evolution from LCD to OLED TVs, from 4K to 8K TVs, and will eventually see the jump from isolated data islands to interconnectivity of all home appliances via AIoT (Artificial Intelligence-enabled Internet of Things).

The dedicated exploration of an outstanding entrepreneur has led to the rise of a brand with more than 30 years’ legacy in technological innovations, bringing a high-quality smart home lifestyle to millions of consumers around the globe. Growing from a local base in Shenzhen to a worldwide company, SKYWORTH is now an internationally renowned technology brand. The company has always been fearless in breaking the norms and thinking outside the box, demonstrating a unique “SKYWORTH style” of innovation and breakthrough. From the first flicker-free TV, the first 4K TV, the first OLED TV, and transparent TVs, to today’s mass-production of 8K TVs, SKYWORTH has created numerous "miracles" in the industry, and consistently played a leading role in China’s color TV industry.

A truly stellar company does not sit around and wait for opportunities to come by. Instead, it creates its own opportunities. Today, a new generation of SKYWORTH staff continues to uphold the spirit of “Be Innovative, Be Bold.” Doubling down on R&D efforts and industrial upgrades in today’s 5G+8K era, SKYWORTH has strengthened its independent innovation capabilities and accelerated the development, deployment, and production of new technologies, products and business models in the industry. On a national level, SKYWORTH is also boosting the momentum of Shenzhen's ongoing transformation into a world-class 5G city, as part of China’s new infrastructure plan.

Persist in Your Dream. From Good to Excellent.

There are only a few chances in your life when you can fight for your dreams. I took my chances and reaped the benefits – growing from an educated youth at the grassroots level to a leader in the home appliance industry. Through perseverance, I have created a life-changing legacy.

A life full of vicissitudes and difficulties has trained up my persistent mindset and courageous attitude. During the three decades of entrepreneurship, I have overcome challenges and fulfilled my dream step by step. I will continue to chase my dream and expand my business territory, as long as there is just a drop of adventure in my blood.

For SKYWORTH, 5G+8K technology will be our growth engine in the next 10 years. Under the leadership and efforts of next-generation SKYWORTH staff, I hope that SKYWORTH can harness the power of the Internet of Things and 5G technologies to interconnect products across different categories and platforms, elevating the brand to the next level and writing the next chapter in history.
