Return to Pen Makers and Their Works

Wing Sung

Wing Sung has apparently been gobbled up by Chinese pen colossus Hero and ceased to operate as a separate entity.  It has its origins in the 1950s (or earlier, as it seems the descendant of the company is a bookseller which bought an already active pen-maker), but did this brand did not appear until the 1980s.  The name, it seems, means “Eternal Life”; the source I take this from also offers that “Wing Sung” is Cantonese pronunciation of the characters, suggesting that the company originates in the south part of China.
