Over recent years, Haier has consistently been ranked as the world-leading brand in Major Appliances. The Group has established a reputation for its innovative product developments, thereby strengthening its leadership in these categories.

Haier’s investment in technological breakthroughs demonstrates our determination to be truly customer-focused and forward-thinking. We are constantly looking for disruptive ways to deliver new user experiences” said Yannick Fierling, CEO of Haier Europe.

Haier’s competitive advantage: its zero distance relation with the consumer

Despite general market sluggishness, Haier’s crowning for the seventh consecutive year is further evidence of the company’s capacity to adapt its business model to the Internet age and the changing demands of connected consumers.

Indeed, Haier has created an entire ecosystem that nurtures innovative ways to engage its consumers. A key example being online factories, a model of manufacturing developed by the brand, in line with future visions as set out in Industry 4.0. Haier has already launched a number of these online factories, including a refrigerator factory in Shenyang and an air conditioner factory in Zhengzhou. By linking their consumers to factories and suppliers, they become designers and are able to take part directly in the R&D and manufacturing processes for new products.

Haier in the future

Going forward into 2016, Haier announced a strategic partnership agreement with General Electric on January 15th, formalisingthe acquisition of GE Appliances.  Recently reorganising its structure in Europe with the appointment of several Regional Managers, Haier plans to continue its evolution from a traditional manufacturing company into a platform to inspire entrepreneurs. Throughout the year, Haier will continue to build its co-creation platform as part of its commitment to succeed together with integrity and create value for all its stakeholders.
