Hisense establishes new TV factory in Europe
Hisense Group has confirmed the decision to establish a new TV factory in one of the existing production halls on the Hisense Gorenje manufacturing site in Velenje.
Production will begin in January 2021, with products intended for the European market.
The factory will employ around 350 people. In the first year it is expected to produce 1.5 million units, and in the following phases up to 4 million TV sets per year.
At the end of April, Hisense Europe announced it was to cut around 2,200 jobs in Europe due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on orders. Gorenje d. o. o. employees included in the redundancy programme may have the opportunity to work in the new facility, the company said.
