About Donghua

Donghua Limited is part of the Hangzhou Donghua Chain Group of Companies; one of the world’s largest chain manufacturers with subsidiaries world-wide, producing over 40 million metres of finished chain per year.

Donghua Limited

With headquarters in China and offices throughout Europe, Donghua Chain has been supplied to the European market for over 20 years, but previously sold under more popular western brand names. However, changes in corporate strategy and the inauguration of the UK operation in 2009 meant that chain could be sold directly in the UK under the Donghua brand name.

Donghua Limited was set up in the West Midlands in 2009 occupying purpose-built premises, with over 7000 sq feet of warehousing holding 800 tonnes of chain. Nine years later in 2016, Donghua moved to larger premises on the same industrial park increasing the warehouse capacity to 25,000 sq feet, extending the workshop and adding a laboratory.
