Ta Shing kicked off its annual Chinese New Year party with a fireworks show followed by an elaborate dinner complete with live entertainment and karaoke. The event was held at the original Ta Shing factory and hosted approximately 250 people including employees and their families. In attendance from P.A.E. were Vice President Jim Leishman, his wife Sue, and Project Manager Justin Zumwalt. Among the speakers were So Sang, president of Ta Shing, and Jim Leishman who thanked the factory for 26 years of hard work and superb engineering, and also acknowledged that because of the new Nordhavn 64 and 72 projects, the future looked brighter than ever before. As is custom, Jim and Justin greeted and toasted each of the 30 tables to thank them personally for their dedication.
