TCL CSOT’s entry into India not only echoes the demand of its globalization strategy but also meets the urgent demand of its client and partners.
As TCL CSOT’s first overseas factory, TCL CSOT India is positioned to be the bridgehead for its globalization, which is an important step for TCL CSOT’s globalization and a new milestone for TCL’s GlobalizationDrive. During the “Two Sessions” – NPC & CPPCC this year, Mr Thomson Li, Founder and Chairman of TCL, once told the media that TCL will unswervingly develop its globalization strategy. The globalization of the manufacturing industry requires a change from exporting products to exporting industrial capabilities. As a high-tech company, CSOT becomes an honourable example of exporting high-end manufacturing capabilities to serve its global customers and partners.
TCL CSOT India will focus on end-user brand customers in India.In terms of after-sales service, delivery efficiency and local production in India, it will also continue to build and surpass its own set of “hard power”: that is, supply chain management capability, production assurance capability, customer delivery capability, which further enhances the competitiveness of TCL CSOT in the global panel industry. TCL CSOTis strived to realize global SmartManufacturing and global delivery, and effectively improve its service to global customers and partners.
In future, TCL CSOT will unswervingly promote the industrial chain construction for panel manufacturing, facilitate TCL’s strategic goal of becoming a global leading corporation, and make more consumers around the world see the strong brand power of TCL!
