Lee Kee Metal began as a metal scrap trading company in 1947. With a view of the growing market demand for industrial metal supplies, Lee Kee established its own smelter in the 1960s to produce a proprietary brand of zinc alloys. In the process, the company became the first zinc alloy supplier in Hong Kong.

By the 1970s, Hong Kong's rapid industrial growth had created strong demand for high-quality metals. In 1975, to serve the needs of the fast-growing die-cast industry, Lee Kee introduced the EZDA range of zinc alloys from Australia's Zinifex Limited (formerly known as Electrolytic Zinc Company of Australasia Limited and subsequently Pasmico Limited until 2004 and now is a member of Nystar Ltd.).Later, during the 1980s and 1990s, Lee Kee's operations expanded significantly with the creation of strategic new subsidiaries, including Lee Kee Metal Company Limited, Lee Sing Materials Company Limited, Lee Fung Metal Company Limited and ^Lee Tai Precious Metal Company Limited. In parallel with this structural growth, Lee Kee's product range also diversified and grew to include zinc ingots, zinc alloys, aluminium ingots, aluminium alloys, magnesium, copper, nickel, electroplating chemicals and precious metals.


Over the decades, Lee Kee is committed to innovation and self-improvement. During the technologically advanced years of the 1990s, Lee Kee was one of the first non-ferrous metal trading companies in Hong Kong to use a sophisticated computer network to provide customers with real-time price quotations and up-to-date market information. Later, to grow with the Hong Kong industries into the PRC , Lee Kee began actively participating in the PRC exhibitions and industry events, exploring new markets and generating new business opportunities in the die-casting industry in the PRC.


Since its establishment in 1997, Lee Kee Group Limited has taken Lee Kee's operations to a new level and affirmed the company's status as a world-class corporation. This powerful foundation also enables Lee Kee to offer market-leading, one-stop services that help its customers achieve cost-effective, highly efficient production processes.


Lee Kee also participates in the production aspect by partnering with Zinifex to set up a zinc alloy manufacturing factory in Ningbo, China named Genesis Alloy (Ningbo) Limited. Genesis is the first foreign-invested zinc alloy manufacturing company in the PRC, which uses western technology in alloy manufacturing. This visionary new enterprise fully conforms to international standards of environmental protection and employee safety regulations, operating state-of-the-art manufacturing processes that are closely monitored by Zinifex engineers.



In 2006, Lee Kee Holdings Limited, a member of Lee Kee Group, was successfully listed on the Main Broad of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.


In 2007, Lee Yip Metal Products Ltd. becomes a member of Lee Kee Group and specializes in distribution and processing of quality stainless steel.


In order to expand the China market and provide comprehensive services, Lee Kee set up sales and distribution centers of LKG Elite (Shenzhen) Ltd., LKG Elite (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. Chengdu Branch, LKG Elite (Guangzhou) Ltd. and LKG Elite (Wuxi) Ltd. in Eastern and Southern China region.
