C.K. Wong obtained his BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering in New York. He recognized the importance of the emerging nonwoven industry in the early 1970s. In 1989, he set up his corporate headquarters in Hongkong to convert nonwoven roll goods into disposable medical and industrial protection products.

Over the past 35 years, Wong's business grew to include household, beauty salon, sports applications, and other value-added products.
In 1994 Wong's company officially became U.S. Pacific Nonwovens Industry Limited. His business expanded with a new converting plant in Dongguan, China, and in 2007 he invested in an adjacent building to handle his growing business. In 2018 Wong's business broadened to PLA  nonwovens. In addition to converted products, Wong's business provided sales, service, and training for nonwoven equipment.

Wong was an active member at INDA since the late 90s.  He was instrumental in helping INDA set up partnerships with key contacts and associations in China. He was also the Honorable Chairman of the Guangdong Novwovens Association(GDNA) and the China Nonwoves & Industrial Textiles Association(Spunbond Division).

C.K. Wong, chairman and CEO of US Pacific Nonwovens industry, helped bridge the gap between North America and Asia for the nonwoven industry. 


His funeral will be held April 10-11 in Hong Kong.
