Hanung Toys & Textiles Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

The foundation of our business was laid with the formation of a Partnership Concern viz. 'Toy Park (India)' by our Promoters in the year 1990 with the object of manufacturing and export of stuff toys. Subsequently, in the same year, the partnership concern entered into a Foreign Collaboration with 'Hanung Industrial Co. Limited', a South Korean company. Consequently, the name of the partnership concern was changed to 'Hanung Toys (India)'. The agreement was for providing the technology for the manufacturing of stuff toys and allied products. The same was effective for 5 years and after the expiry of this period the technical know-how became the property of the partnership concern for full and free use.

Simultaneously, on October 10, 1990, our Company was incorporated under the name of 'Hanung Toys (India) Private Limited' under the Companies Act, 1956, with the Registration number 55-41722 having its registered office at 35, Govind Mohalla, Haiderpur, Delhi - 110 042.

Consequently, the partnership concern was dissolved.

Subsequently, our Company was converted into a public limited company w.e.f. May 23, 1996 and pursuant to this, the name of our Company was changed to 'Hanung Toys (India) Limited'.

In the year 1997, we have increased our capacity to 110 lakh pieces p.a. which was financed through equity participation by our Promoters amounting to Rs. 45.00 lakh and Magnus Capital Corporation Limited, a body corporate registered in Mauritius to the tune of Rs. 99.90 lakh and also term loans from Financial Institutions/ Banks viz. PICUP and NSIC to the tune of Rs. 61.00 lakh and Rs. 43.97 lakh, respectively.

In 2005, we have entered into an agreement with The Walt Disney Company (India) Private Limited wherein we have been licenced to use some of the Disney Characters and Trademarks enabling us to increase the variety in our stuff toys range.

Also, as a part of our business integration strategy, we have acquired the business of two of the Promoter Group Companies viz. Hanung Furnishings Private Limited engaged in the business of manufacturing and marketing of home furnishings and Hanung Processors Private Limited engaged in the business of textile processing through a Slump Sale Arrangement w.e.f. from midnight October 29, 2005.
