Hisense has set up branches and offices in Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, France, and other European countries, actively expanding local sales by cooperating with Amazon, Euronics, ElectonicPartner, local dealer, etc.
Hisense has also increased investment in Europe to improve brand awareness and accelerate the localization process. In 2021, from January to May, ULED TV U7 and ULED TV U8 sales in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Russia increased 181% year-on-year, and sales revenue increased 258% year-on-year. To meet local market demands and accelerate products production, Hisense signed an agreement with the Slovenian government and planning to produce 2.5 million TVs for the European market in 2021.
Dedicated to technical innovation and putting consumer first, Hisense makes customized products according to different market needs. For example, due to the high humidity levels in the U.K., Hisense adjusts the regular 1200 spins of the drying washing machine to 1400 spins locally for the U.K. market to make laundry dry faster.
In addition to taking care of consumer habits, Hisense also optimizes its products in response to the local market and environmental changes. According to market research, impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown, European consumers demand a larger fridge to store food. Hisense launched a 2-meters SkyLine refrigerator, which its height and volumes are designed larger, and successfully fulfil European consumers' demand.
Hisense insists on localized management by establishing localized teams, such as sales, production, logistics, customer care, through project management and work authorization. Hisense believes that the local management and insights from local employees can better integrate into its market.
Hisense's European TV factory has double more employees since it opened. To strengthen the localized operations, the factory continues to hire local employees. "Hisense's TV factory makes a significant contribution to the development of the region by creating more than 700 new jobs" says Minister Zdravko Počivalšek.
Looking ahead, Hisense will continue to work hand in hand with the European market, cooperate closely with local departments and partners, to provide high-quality technology products and services for European consumers.
