THE SHEA Family > Armstrong Shea


Mr. Armstrong Shea

Mr. Armstrong MC Shea, the 5th son of Wenzhong Shea, is the Founder and Chairman of Ken Yuan Knitting Factory Limited and Mingyu Knitting Factory Limited.

Under his father's tutelage, Armstrong's passion for knitwear was established at a very young age. He had plenty of opportunities to work with various clients while taking care of Ken Shing's merchandising department. Having been in the knitwear industry for over thirty years, Armstrong's enthusiasm has never faded a bit, but has rather grown further, especially for complicated yet delicate and aesthetic knitted handicrafts.
