Inside Hisense’s South African LED TV factory

Hisense entered the South African market in 1996, and is now based in Midrand, Gauteng, and Century City, Cape Town – with additional offices in South Africa’s four major centres.

The company distributes its products to 3,000 chain stores and 500 home appliance franchise stores in SA, and exports products to Namibia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Zambia, Botswana, and Lesotho.

In June 2013, Hisense launched its R350-million consumer electronics and home appliance manufacturing facility in Atlantis industrial park, Cape Town – which can produce 400,000 refrigerators and televisions annually.

Hisense was kind enough to give us a behind-the-scenes look at its Cape Town factory, and what goes in to making its LED TVs.
