Chinese TCL Commences Production in Turkey

Following the lead of global electronics sector corporations investing in Turkey, Chinese smartphone manufacturer TLC has also invested in Turkey and commenced the test production of its phones at its facility in the country with its partner Arçelik.

Minister of Industry and Technology Mustafa Varank visited the plant in Çerkezköy Organized Industrial Zone (OSB), located Tekirdağ district on Sunday and said that global brands in the smartphone market have invested in Turkey and that the market continues to grow gradually in the world and within the country. “TCL has launched cooperation with its local co-producer, Arçelik. The annual production capacity of this place is 450,000 units," Minister Varank said.

Noting that the Ministry of Industry and Technology provides a wide range of incentives and advantages to global brands and domestic producers, Minister Varank said, "We have the following advice to global brands: Do not think of the Turkish market only. Consider its export potential and establish a local production base for your brand more efficiently in our country where you can cut costs relying on a continually growing number of domestic suppliers."

TCL is a fast-growing consumer electronics company and leading player in the global TV and smartphone industry.

Several Chinese smartphone manufacturers have already begun producing in Turkey, including Oppo, Techno Mobile and Xiaomi.
