中文名:迪恩

国籍:巴基斯坦

Nationality: Pakistani


On his first visit to Jinhua in 2009, Din was impressed by the city's electric tool industry. He has stayed in Yongkang ever since. In 2016, he set up a factory, to grow his own brand, which specializes in the production of electric tools powered by lithium batteries. His products are sold to over 10 countries, including Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the UAE.



2009年,迪恩第一次来到金华,被永康的电动工具产业吸引。此后,他留在永康发展,2016年办了工厂,主打自己的品牌,专门生产锂电电动工具,产品销往巴基斯坦、阿富汗、沙特、叙利亚、迪拜等10多个国家。


After developing his brand, he expanded production capacity and opened a store in Yiwu. He is involved in both production and sales and has seen his business expand.



之后,他又扩大了产能,并在义乌开了一家专卖店,生产销售相结合,生意越做越好。



Din considers doing business in Yongkang a unique experience: he can find anything he needs for production thanks to the abundance of manufacturers and the availability of all kinds of parts. Prices are always reasonable too.


迪恩觉得,在永康创业可谓得天独厚,要什么有什么,配套厂商很多,各种零部件都能采购到,且价格更具优势。


In the beginning, Din was only doing purchases, but due to the increasing number of overseas orders and increasing demand for electric tools, suppliers were often unable to keep up with production. "With the increasing number of orders, I gained experience, and I asked myself, why not open my own factory and focus on my own brand?" 



起初,迪恩只是做采购,由于电动工具的海外订单越来越多,需求量也越来越大,厂家来不及生产。“有订单,有经验,何不自己办个厂,主打自己的品牌?”



After much preparation, Yongkang Din Electric Tools Co Ltd was formally established in November 2016. Din established his company on the ancient stage in the village of Lieqiao, Huajie Town. The two-story building of a little more than 100 square meters was transformed into a packaging workshop. 



2016年11月,筹备多时的永康市迪恩电动工具有限公司正式成立,迪恩把公司设在永康市花街镇烈桥村里的旧戏台,上下两层,共100多平方米,他把这里改造成一个包装车间。


At the time, his company had 10 employees who were able to produce and assemble tens of thousands of lithium-ion electric tools per month. Under favorable market conditions, annual sales could reach 4.5 million yuan ($691,000). 



当时,他的公司有10名员工,月均生产、组装锂电电动工具上万台(套)。形势好的时候,年销售额达四五百万元。


In addition to being able to meet its own production demands, Din's factory also supplies parts to Yongkang's local electric tool companies. As business increased, Din rented another 100 square meters of space next door.



除了满足自身生产需求外,迪恩还把部分配件供应给永康本地的电动工具企业。生意越做越好,他又在隔壁租了一个100多平方米的厂房。



"China is focusing on opening up the country to further growth, actively promoting international cooperation through the Belt and Road Initiative, and adding new forces to common development," Din said. He explained that Pakistan has a strategic location on the Belt and Road and in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Pakistan and China are friendly neighbors, so the prospect of lasting cooperation between the two countries is very attractive. 



“中国提出坚持打开国门搞建设,积极促进'一带一路'国际合作,增添共同发展新动力。”迪恩说,他的家乡位于中巴经济走廊这个“一带一路”重要节点上,巴基斯坦和中国是亲密友好邻邦,两国的合作前景十分诱人,也为他在永康发展提供了难得的契机。


In addition to establishing a career, Din also found his soul mate in Jinhua. Three years after coming to Jinhua, Din met his "the one": "My wife is from Lanxi; I met her while in Yiwu on business." Din said that his wife is very supportive of his career. They also have a daughter, who is 4 years old now. 



除了事业,迪恩在金华还收获了爱情。在来金华3年后,迪恩遇到了生命中的另一半。“我妻子是兰溪人,做生意时跟她相识于义乌。”迪恩说,妻子对他的事业很支持,现在,他们的女儿也已经4岁。



Becoming an entrepreneur is by no means an easy task, but Din is full of confidence of his future career. He said that he still hopes to own a 1,000-square-meter workshop in which he runs his own big factory and provides more job opportunities. 



虽然还在创业中,条件很艰苦,但迪恩对未来还是充满了希望。迪恩说,他一直有个愿望,就是想找一个1000平方米的厂房,自己开一个大工厂,帮助更多的人就业。


"Yongkang is an ideal place for entrepreneurship. Here, people are very enthusiastic. I believe that Yongkang-based enterprises will do very well." Din said that he has received help from many locals, making his life much easier. He also said he hopes to buy a house and settle down in Yongkang in the near future.



“永康是一片创业的热土,永康人民很热情,我相信企业也一定会越办越好的。”让迪恩感动的是,不少永康人都非常乐意帮助他,给予他许多方便。迪恩希望用不了多久,他就能在永康买房定居。
