This is Absen’s story
Absen began as a small startup in a 20sqm room. The company was funded in 2001 by Ding Yanhui (Hansen Ding), Ren Yonghong (Dennis Ren) and Deng Jiangbo (Heman Deng) in an office near the Shenzhen Youth College.

The Chinese calligraphy on the wall translates that “as heaven maintains vigor through movement, a gentleman should constantly strive for self-perfection!”
Actually the story of Absen can date back to 1996 when the 23-year-old young man Hansen Ding borrowed 500 RMB ($60 at that time) and travelled three days and two nights to Shenzhen, a fast-developing southern coastal city full of opportunities, from a village in Gansu Province, one of the poorest provinces in China.
Just like hundreds of thousands of young men before him, Hansen Ding was not sure of what to do and tried various jobs, one of which was electric welder, where he learned how to manufacture, assemble, install and fix an LED panel and became a professional LED engineer.
Experience of working as an electronic engineer and earning his life in Shenzhen provided the foundation for running the LED business and also inspired Absen’s core values of “Honesty. Gratitude. Responsibility”.
And then Absen’s story began.
