GreenLight Collectibles has a major announcement to share with our customers, partners, and collectors. We are thrilled to announce a change in company ownership that marks a new chapter in our journey toward even greater success and innovation in the die-cast arena.
GreenLight was purchased by Waltersons Industries Group at the end of 2022 and they have appointed Vincent Tang as the new President and CEO. He is a die-hard collector at heart and is bringing fresh perspectives, resources, and expertise to fuel our growth and take us to new heights. He is focused on gaining control over the production process and improving quality over manufacturing.
In addition, GreenLight Collectibles plans to acquire our own tooling shop and CAD development team, which will help us to enhance our casting accuracy and details. We will be recreating many American iconic vehicles with modern CAD & tooling techniques. Vincent and the rest of the GreenLight team will strive to deliver exceptional quality at an affordable price and maintain our competitive edge.
Vincent’s passion for cars started when he was just 9 years old. He began building plastic model kits and then collecting die-cast models. He has been focused on collecting 1:12, 1:18, 1:24, 1:43 and 1:64 models over the last 30 years from all the major brands worldwide. Vincent’s enthusiasm for the industry leads him to possess an understanding of the collector’s desires and the necessary steps a brand should take to meet that demand.
“I see so much potential in GreenLight. It’s an awesome company,” Vincent said. “I think my business experience combined with my passion for die-cast will help the company grow to another level.”
Though Vincent was born and raised in Hong Kong, he has lived in Canada and the UK for decades and is well acquainted with western culture. He has received a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering at Western University in Ontario, Canada and a Master’s degree in Investment Management at Cass Business School in London. He’s confident that his education will be a valuable asset to GreenLight.
This transition will have a positive impact on our commitment to delivering exceptional products and unparalleled customer experiences. We are excited about what the future holds and we are eager to exceed your expectations and continue to be your trusted die-cast brand. Your continued support, trust, and partnership are incredibly important to us, and we are genuinely grateful for the opportunity to serve you.
