Haier Air Conditioners
Haier reputation and history
Founded in 1984, Haier Group is a Chinese company that produces home appliances and consumer electronics. It is headquartered in Qingdao, China. Haier has a wide range of products including mobile phones, washing machines, televisions, air conditioners, computers, and microwave ovens.
Although Haier was founded 32 years ago, its history can be traced back to the 1920s. Back then, a factory that specialized in producing refrigerators was built in Qingdao. There was then no mention of Haier air conditioners!
In the late 1940s, the company was made a state-owned enterprise and supplied the Chinese market with home appliances especially refrigerators. In 1984, as Qingdao Refrigerator Co., Haier started venturing into the world market by partnering with foreign corporations that were looking for affiliations with Chinese manufacturers.
In partnership with Liebherr, a Germany’s refrigerator company, Qingdao Refrigerator Co. manufactured refrigerators. This partnership together with other changes boosted sales and increased profitability of the company. Following its good performance, the company absorbed other appliances makers thereby diversifying its products. By 1990, the company was already manufacturing computers and mobile phones. The company adopted the name Haier in 1991 before adopting its current name, Haier Group, in 1992.
In the mid-1990s, the company started to open manufacturing facilities in other countries in order to expand its footprint in the consumer electronics and home appliances market. The Indonesia facility was opened in 1996. In 1997, Harier Group opened two production facilities in Malaysia and Philippines. Today, the company has production facilities in various parts of the world including US, Jordan, Pakistan, Algeria, Tunisia, Nigeria, South Africa, and India.
