Hang Tung Resources (USA) Co., a U.S. commodity trading company located in the Chicago area, is a new sponsor of the 2019 U.S. SOY Global Trade Exchange & Specialty Grains Conference (GTE).
Hang Tung Resources started in the 1960s doing textile trading in Asian destinations and officially registered in 1984. The company is made up of four areas: real estate, investment funds, agricultural processing and commodity trading. The company has had its U.S. location since 2014, focusing primarily on trading agricultural products such as cotton, oilseeds and grain.
“Hang Tung opened its trading headquarters in Chicago not only to be close to the global futures pricing center, the Chicago Board of Trade, but also to be in the heartland of one of the world’s largest crop production regions and transportation hubs,” says Chen Ding, merchandiser at Hang Tung. “This allows us to understand the crop status, ensure product quality, and establish connections between the origins and destinations of these products.”
With GTE being held in Chicago this year, Hang Tung employees are looking forward to taking advantage of the global event being held right in their backyard.
“The Global Trade Exchange provides an opportunity for us to meet with potential customers from around the world,” Ding says. “Last year we had a trade show booth at the event and not only did we talk to many buyers, we made great connections in many of our targeted markets. There is high enthusiasm among our staff for the event again this year.”
Events like GTE provide an opportunity to meet many customers and take Hang Tung’s core values worldwide.
“Our goal is always to provide the best quality of product we’re providing in the most productive and efficient way,” Ding says. “We hope to grow with our customers and we take great pride in every step of the export chain that we participate in.”
Attendees can visit Hang Tung Resources in booth 1113 at the GTE trade show Aug. 20-22. To learn more about GTE and other event sponsors, visit www.grainconference.org.
