TCL Home Networking Business Unit holds a leading position in the industry and worldwide in recognition of its extensive production capacity and sophisticated supply chain management in respect of its DVD OEM/ODM products. As a consequence of this we have been able to establish long-term strategic partnerships with internationally renowned names like Philips, Toshiba, SONY, LG and THOMSON. Although supply of some components is outsourced to affiliated local factories, the main production and CKD/SKD packaging facility are located in the Huizhou Zhongkai Hi-tech Development Zone. Our factory there covers around 20,000 m2, which is sufficient to accommodate 26 assembly lines and 4 SMT lines. On this site we have set up an integrated quality management system, which is continually seeking to enhance quality. Ongoing investment has raised our annual production to 22 million sets, and we manage to achieve an order response time of W+3.
For the time being this division’s AV products (for example DVD players, DVD recorders and portable DVD’s) concentrate on ODM/OEM business for strategic clients (especially in collaboration with patent owners), and we confidently expect it to continue to generate good results as the new generation blue-ray products come on stream.
