The Herald Group embraces toys, housewares, computer products and timepieces divisions with operations in Hong Kong, Mainland China and UK.
Herald Metal & Plastic Works Limited, now the operating company of the toys division, was first established in 1969 by the late Messrs. Chang Dong-Song, Boris Freiman, and George Bloch, and is a leading toy producer with factories in Dongguan. In the mid 1980's, Herald diversified into other fields of manufacturing through the acquisition of two other businesses - houseware and computer heads.

Herald Houseware Limited makes upmarket and protective coated aluminum cookware. Pilot Housewares (UK) Limited, the Group's UK cookware sales and distribution unit, accounts for more than a third of the division's sales.

The division also produces motor actuator assemblies as well as smart connected devices for The Internet of Things, including thermostats and various connected sensor devices.
