Vivo, a global technology business, said today that it has begun producing an extensive portfolio of products locally at its first production site in Faisalabad’s Industrial Estate.
As one of the region’s leading brands, this is vivo’s sixth intelligent production facility, as the company expands its global footprint in line with its “More Local, More Global” strategy.
Vivo has invested USD 10 million in a domestic manufacturing factory in Pakistan to enhance its presence there. This is in line with the “Made in Pakistan” strategy, which aims to contribute to the development of the local economy and the empowerment of the local workers.
Local demand for 3.3 million mobile phones is presently 3.3 million per month in Pakistan. The new plant, which covers 4 acres, has a monthly production capacity of 500,000 smartphones.
Vivo has been following the “More Local, More Global” strategy since 2014, quickly building its global R&D and production network.
Aside from the recently opened production centre in Pakistan, vivo has already constructed five such facilities in Dongguan, Chongqing, Greater Noida, Dhaka, and Tangerang, Indonesia, with a combined annual manufacturing capacity of hundreds of millions of cutting-edge devices.
This constant increase in production capacity has proven critical in ensuring worldwide vivo product supply and meeting international user needs.
According to Eric Kong, CEO of vivo Pakistan, “Pakistan is becoming a more attractive place for local manufacturing hubs.” “Our decision to establish this local manufacturing factory in Pakistan is not only a way for us to enrich the lives of our users with high-quality, domestic innovations, but it is also a way for us to provide additional possibilities to the local workforce.”
