TCL, one of the dominant players in the global TV industry and a leading consumer electronics brand, announces the Phase I completion of TCL Wuhan Intelligent Industrial Park, doubling down on smart manufacturing to facilitate premium air conditioning production, with the annual manufacture capacity of over 6 million units.
The TCL Wuhan Intelligent Industrial Park for Air Conditioner is a three-phase project valued at USD497 million. Within premises of up to 390,000 square meters, the Park comprises a full AC supply chain – R&D, smart manufacturing and smart logistics – from where TCL’s high-end air conditioners are exported to over 160 markets around the world.
Sixty percent of the Park’s production automation is developed by TCL and the Park is digital driven to wield the technology of AIoT, big data and machine learning to raise operation efficiency, product quality and lower its costs.
Apart from applying smart technologies, TCL also lays a sustainable foundation throughout the manufacturing process. The Park is significantly run by harnessing solar power, monitored by EMS (energy management system) and fed by a smart hydration system to ensure both energy consumption and carbon emission are kept at a sustainable level.
TCL has been building high-quality air-conditioning products for more than 20 years with established global production network – 10 manufacturing bases spanning across China, Brazil and Indonesia – of overall capacity of more than 30 million units. TCL Air Conditioning models, such as Fresh Air 1.0, Gentle Cool, Elite, Q-Series, have been available in many countries.
Not only TCL provides refreshing air experience, its Red Dot award-winning air conditioners also are well-designed fashionable pieces of furniture that subtly blends in to your home décor.
In 2023 CES, TCL introduced the second generation of TCL Fresh Air AC Technology. Unlike conventional AC that circulates air inside the house, TCL’s proprietary FreshIN+ fresh air system transports the fresh air from the outdoors to the indoors with capacity of up to 60 cubic meters per hour thanks to its powerful air engine, which helps increase the oxygen and humidity levels.
With the latest upgrade, the TCL Fresh Air Technology is now taking your air quality to the next level. Its proprietary circulation technology not simply inhales fresh air from outdoor, but also exhales stale air from indoor – just like breathing.
Its built-in sensor detects the total volatile organic compounds TVOC in the air, and the detection results are presented in the “dynamic display of air quality” in real time, on top of the already powerful fresh air functionalities.
Locally, TCL remains a leading brand in the air-conditioning market. “TCL South Africa has a long and proud history in the air-conditioning market, as the third bestselling supplier locally and in Africa for more than 10 years with our established distribution partner TecsaReco,” says TCL South Africa’s marketing manager Ryan Curling. “The brand remains committed to bringing an accessible, high-end and innovative air-conditioning product to South African users.”
