Company History
 In our thirty-year journey of company development, HERON is always brave enough to take the path less travellled. 
Establish a foundation
In 1991, Mr. Bill, the Founder & CEO of HERON, concluded his intensive study of resistance welding. Fuelled by his passion for the craft, he harboured an earnest desire to embark on his very own entrepreneurial venture in the realm of resistance welding, with the intent to make a tangible impact. Thus, he banded together with his friends to establish the nascent corporation referred to above. The inception of any new start-up is invariably accompanied by a multitude of formidable trials and tribulations, and for Mr. Bill and his cohorts, toil and hunger were perhaps the indelible hallmarks of their remarkable journey as self-made entrepeneurs.

China's first integrated welding guns

Despite encountering challenges along the way, the unwavering enthusiasm of the small team cannot be simply overlooked. In their small workshop, they tirelessly innovated and created  the anti-damp silver brazing agent, China's inaugural integrated welding guns, and the AC 51 controller utilizing a single chip computer. However, in 1992, the team encountered their first major hurdle, as business difficulties left only Bill to bear the burden of debt.

Fortunately, he got help from a fund and persevered. In 1994, his success in developing the first integrated welding guns for a light-weight truck vehicle production line for Shanghai Dongfeng Company served as a source of immense encouragement. Furthermore, it laid the cornerstone for the technological advancements that ultimately fueled the creation of HERON Intelligent Equipment.

Ride the wind and waves

In 1997, Mr. Bill founded HERON Company and purchased a 4,000 square meter plot of land. Over the course of the next 15 years, HERON experienced significant growth, expanding from a modest 20-person team to a thriving business bustling with over 100 employees.

Throughout this time, HERON remained devoted to technological innovation, continuously breaking new ground with cutting-edge processes that upend conventional industry norms. Specifically, HERON has developed a CDW medium voltage capacitor energy discharge welding technology and an MFDC medium frequency spot projection welding technology, both of which have successfully saved costs, improved productive efficiency and reduced environmental pollution for customers.

As a result, HERON has worked tirelessly to scale these advancements across several industries, encompassing automobiles, compressors, low-voltage electric systems, home appliances, motors, hardware, and beyond, leaving remarkable footprints in the resistance welding process in each industry.

Intelligent era for our industry

In 2012, the company officially changed its name to "Guangzhou HERON Intelligent Equipment Co. Ltd". In order to expand its operations, the company purchased over 80 acres of land to establish a new base and construct a new factory. In 2019, the company successfully completed its relocation, with the factory building area reaching 54,000 square meters. The new facility is equipped with a full line of manufacturing equipment and has a larger production capacity. Additionally, HERON also built the HERON courtyard, which offers various living and entertainment amenities for its employees, such as a canteen, gymnasium, basketball court, and staff dormitory building to ensure that the staff can live and work happily. HERON employees often refer to the company as their "home".

The development of the company brings an increasing number of employees in China and abroad. Currently, HERON has a total of over 400 employees globally, and the organizational structure is well-developed, with dedicated teams in research and development, technology, sales, production, and functional management departments across three continents.

Process innovation

During these 15 years, HERON has remained devoted to the improvement of traditional technologies, continually breaking new ground with cutting-edge processes that upend conventional industry norms.

Invented the resistance welding process for copper tubes and steel lower shell of the refrigerator compressor, which replaced the traditional silver brazing process.
Invented the medium-frequency high-current resistance diffusion welding process, providing a new process for the conductive bus bar of frame circuit breakers, replacing the traditional brazing process.
Produced the industry's first automatic production line with a record 3.9s speed, which greatly improved the productive efficiency of the lower shell of refrigerator compressors.
