The Chinese manufacturing revolution

Chinese newcomers like NiSi, Laowa and SIRUI are breaking the Made in China stereotype by swiftly racing to the front of their industries and driving innovation. We believe the photographic manufacturing industry offers a taste of what is to come to other segments and we are confidently backing it.

What customers are saying

I recently bought a filter through LG, and not only received my goods in record time, superbly packaged, but also with a little extra something inside the parcel...
Thanks Hougaard and LG for exceeding my expectations, what a pleasure doing business with professionals.

Mark Drysdale

As a regular customer I can highly recommend Hougaard and his team without any hesitation - this company offers high quality products that are priced VERY reasonably. The service I have received is highly commendable and every purchasing experience has been an absolute pleasure! There are not a lot of companies out there that still has this level of integrity.

Niel Lambrechts

I have seldom come across such excellent service. Hougaard and his team have bent over backwards to meet my needs. I recommend them very highly indeed.
