Hisense televisions are manufactured by Hisense Group, namely a member company of Hisense Hisense Visual Technology Co., Ltd. Hisense has 14 industrial parks according to Wikipedia. These facilities assemble various electronics and home appliances.
If you analyze the different Hisense websites, the models of Hisense produced TVs differ from region to region. And this suggests that Hisense, we hope this direction is still in the process of formation, there is no unified approach to television production. The company’s regional divisions are independently creating TV sets in their region.
Briefly about Hisense
Hisense started as an OEM manufacturer, custom-made TV sets were assembled under third party brands, in early 2000, Hisense began to assemble TV sets under its own brand. Then Hisense began to acquire various companies, first in China and later on other continents. The most significant acquisitions were the Sharp TV business in North America, including a factory in Mexico. Later, following disputes and lawsuits from Sharp (Sharp claimed that the produced TV sets were of poor quality and that this affected the general attitude towards the Sharp brand), an agreement was reached to discontinue production of Hisense TV sets with the Sharp brand from 2019. The purchase of the Toshiba Visual Solutions Division can also be noted. But the fate of the Toshiba brand is still unknown, as Toshiba has previously licensed the brand to other manufacturers Compal in North America and Vestel in Europe. According to Toshiba, the TVs will be produced by these companies before the license expires, it is also possible to revise the terms of the license, it can be understood that if an agreement is reached with Hisense, the licensing terms may be revised. But most likely, buying Toshiba is more likely to require Hisense to gain access to more modern Toshiba know-how.
Where Hisense TVs are produced
- For the USA, Canada, Mexico, TVs are assembled in Mexico at the former Toshiba factory.
- Europe – TVs are assembled in the Czech Republic, previously TVs were assembled in Hungary, but due to low demand, the production site in Hungary was closed.
- China – in China is the main production of televisions, with Chinese factories televisions are supplied to many countries.
Who manufactures components for Hisense TV sets
Components for TV sets are manufactured by Hisense itself, as well as purchased from other Chinese manufacturers. Screens are also bought from third parties, but Hisense does not tell you who the supplier of screens is. Although there are only a few major manufacturers of screens Samsung (since 2021 ceases production of standard LED screens), LG, BOE, AUO, Sharp. But if you believe the Chinese sites, such as https://zhidao.baidu.com/question/560684593.html?qbl=relate_question_1 the main supplier of screens for Hisense TVs, this is the Taiwanese company Chi Mei Corporation (InnoLux Corporation) and AUO (AU Optronics)
But depending on the country for which the TV and a separate batch of TVs, in the same model of TVs, can be installed screens from different manufacturers. Which sometimes leads to criticism of users to the quality of the screens.
