Haier Pakistan On Course to Manufacture 150,000 Locally Produced Laptops By End 2016 at The Lahore Plant

 

Pakistan is well on its way toward achieving full technology transfer in the manufacture of laptops, opening the way, not in the too distant a future, for the country to join the ranks of technologically advanced countries.

This follows the setting up of the country’s first assembly line in Lahore by Haier Pakistan, in collaboration with the Chinese home appliance and electronics giant, the Haier Group.

The first test run of 1000 laptops manufactured at the Haier Pakistan Lahore plant was successfully completed earlier this year, and based on that success the company has set itself a target of 150,000 units for the year 2016. This is a most significant development, one which will enable the country to build a pool of highly trained, technology savvy workforce, achieve self-sufficiency in the manufacture of high end technologically advanced goods and acquire full technology transfer.

Says Shah Faisal, CEO Haier Pakistan, “This capability to locally produce Haier branded laptops, the first major endeavor of its kind in the history of Pakistan has been realized with full collaboration of Haier China” and adds, “this is a first class example of what can be achieved given China’s willingness to assist Pakistan on the road to technological advancement”. As the market for laptops currently estimated at 300,000 units annually is slated to grow in the years ahead, Haier Pakistan has positioned itself to help meet a significant portion of that demand through local production.

The laptop assembly plant in the immediate and short term has resulted in the creation of hundreds of jobs and in the years ahead will enable Pakistan’s youth to chalk out their career development in a field that was hitherto not available to them. Haier Pakistan On Course to Manufacture 150,000 Locally Produced Laptops By End 2016 at The Lahore Plant
