China-europe Cargo Train Loaded With TCL’S Products Arrives In Warsaw

August 01st,2016

      TCL Corporation, a global leader in consumer electronics and communications, announced on June 20 that its 33 carriages of electronic components transported by the first China-Europe Block Train under the family brand China Railway Express had safely arrived in Poland where they will be assembled into color TV sets and sold throughout Europe including Frankfurt, Paris, Lisbon and Madrid.

      TCL’s Poland fabrication plant, covering 105,000m2, is the biggest Chinese-invested manufacturing plant in Poland. With 5 production lines and 284 employees, it has an annual capacity of 4.5 million assembled TV sets, which can be transported to Frankfurt and Paris within one day and to Lisbon and Madrid within three days. Currently, 90% of the components assembled in the plant are transported by railway from China.

      “While Poland is committed to the reindustrialization, China is pressing forward with international cooperation in production capacity. The two countries can strengthen their cooperation on energy, infrastructure, freight and logistics,” Tomson Li, Chairman and CEO of TCL Corporation, said. “TCL should leverage its industrial capability to take root in Poland by establishing a manufacturing base and R&D center in the region, so as to be an integral part and a booster in the process of Poland’s reindustrialization.”

      Facing opportunities brought about by China’s “One Belt, One Road” initiative, TCL is positioning itself to be a global provider of smart products and Internet application services, and is planning to further expand its presence in emerging markets overseas. By strategically transforming to the “smart + Internet” and “products + services” business models, TCL wants to provide consumers with better user experience and connect the ecosystem with potential global partners.
