Having their own means of production is very important for the smartphone manufacturers so it’s very nice to see some long time household name like the ELEPHONE to commit to the future and opening their own facility. Such move is also a good sign not just towards the investors and bussiness partners, but also to customers with the promise of better control of product quality and better service.
The factory is located in Luzhou, a tech hub in South China located close to Huawei and other household tech names and will allow the company todesign, research and develop new smart products in-house. Manufacturing and packaging will all be handled at the newly constructed factory by 800 fully trained ELEPHONE staff across 16 production lines and 5 SMT lines. with the local government’s strong support and fresh new contracts totalling over $42 million it can be the turning point for the company, which had some issues in the recent past.
ELEPHONE invested over 200 milion RMD over the past five years and they are planning to keep up the cooperation with big names like Qualcomm, Samsung and BOE as the world leader in semiconductor displays and related sensor field. We have seen the cooperation already working with the release of the flagship model U Pro and ELEPHONE have some new interesting models planned for the near future to strengthen their position. So the factory is surely a big thing for the brand to achieve that.
