The new Swire HK Archive Service office was officially opened on 11th November 2015. Located in Shipyard Lane, in an area that was once part of the Taikoo Dockyard, the facility is the group’s first purpose-built archive and is now home to historical photographs, business records, advertisements, audio-visual recordings and other material that details Swire’s key activities and business development, as well as the working lives, experiences and contributions of Swire staff over two centuries. At the heart of the facility lies the repository where the archives are stored and preserved. The repository has been built to the highest archiving standards, including four-hour fire-proof walls, ceiling and floor, an FM-200 gas fire suppression system, smoke detectors and 24-hour temperature and humidity controls. The new facility also serves as a resource centre for academic researchers, students, the media and other stakeholders who are interested in the Swire heritage in Hong Kong.
