Holovis, a leader in the creation of multi-sensory immersive experiences, has secured a multi-million minority investment in the company by Hong Kong listed corporation, Road King Investment and Asset Management Group Limited.

This injection of funding from Road King will hasten the UK company’s expansion plans, particularly in the Far East.

“With our new partner investor, our Far East operation will also significantly expand across all market sectors, as well as integrating Holovis experiences into Road King’s existing and new real estate projects they own and operate across China,” he added.

Road King is actively investing in specialist technology companies such as Holovis to work alongside other complimentary businesses within their portfolio. This multidisciplinary approach aims to deepen and expand the company’s offering across China.

“This partnership with Holovis, along with our other technology investments, brings a unique capability to Road King’s vision and strategy in designing and building the next-generation of visitor attractions and public venue experiences in the Far East,” commented William Zen, Chairman of Road King.

“This investment also supports and underpins Holovis and Road King’s plans to expand into the Chinese enterprise and simulation markets, which are both showing strong year-on-year growth opportunities.”

Established in 2004, Holovis currently employs 110 staff members. With its head office in central UK, the company operates innovation centres in London, Shanghai and Orlando.
