History

A Hong Kong success story

Computime’s story began 40 years ago, when we introduced an innovative line of digital timing devices to a major automobile company. Soon enough, Computime’s inventions were integrated into car dashboards and home appliances around the world.

A true Hong Kong success story, we now have 14 offices and manufacturing sites around the world and an international reputation for superior R&D, brand distribution services, and cutting-edge wireless solutions.
