Universal Publications, Ltd.

Incorporated in 1968 as publishers of academic textbooks and language teaching aids, our sales team needed a good map to help them visiting schools daily. However, quality maps were really inadequate at that time. We then discovered that the demand for maps was immense in the rapidly growing economy of Hong Kong. After several years of preparation, we published our first folded street map in the early 70's. In 1977, our first guidebook, “Hong Kong Guidebook” was published. Over the years, this guidebook continues to attain recognition and has become one of the best-sellers in Hong Kong, putting us among the prominent map makers of Hong Kong ever since.

In the early 90’s we began computerizing our systems of map drawing and data processing, and in the middle of that decade, we developed a computer database consisting of over 12,000 names of buildings with detailed address in Chinese and English. Now, with modern technology, more sophisticated databases were developed leading to the diversification of our map products. Popular titles including the “Hong Kong Directory” and the “Hong Kong Driving Guide” were published in the 90’s.

Besides maps for local readers, a series of touring maps were published by the turn of the century such as the “Hong Kong City Map with Guide” and “Palm Atlas of Hong Kong”, etc.  Other than titles for the Hong Kong region, maps of Macau, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, Pearl River Delta, and the Guangdong Province were published. Map of China and Map of the World are among our best selling titles, which corporations love to choose as gifts for their clients.

Our commitment to quality maps has gained us reputation and recognition in the field. We also supply custom-made products to corporations and government departments including the Hong Kong Observatory, PCCW, BMW, Michelin, OOCL, and Maersk, just to name a few.
