Company Background

Chinese home appliance maker Midea Group offers products such as air conditioners, refrigerators, washing machines and microwave ovens. Its main competitor is China's top air conditioner maker, Gree Electric Appliances.

He Xiangjian set up the company with friends in 1968 in the town of Foshan, Guangdong Province, beginning with a small operation producing plastic parts. It built earnings with electric fans and the like, and listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 1993. In 2012, He stepped down, replaced by current Chairman Fang Hongbo.

At the end of 2014, smartphone maker Xiaomi invested in Midea, taking a 1.288% stake. They plan to deepen their business relationship by combining Midea's home-appliance technology with smartphones to jointly produce, for example, a system to easily operate home appliances using smartphones. Recently, Midea has been building partnerships with other companies, including online retailer Jingdong Group.
