Company background

TCL is a Chinese home appliance maker. Its operations include core product, liquid crystal display (LCD) TV sets, smartphones, white goods, LCD panels and PCs. It has a strong profile worldwide, ranked fourth in LCD TV sets and seventh in smartphones.

TCL began in 1981 in Huizhou, Guangdong Province, as a minor manufacturer owned by local government. Its little countryside factory grew into a world-famous consumer electronics company, in part due to its strong leader, Chairman Li Dongsheng. The company is widely admired in China.

Unlike most Chinese home appliance makers, TCL looked abroad for opportunities from its early days. In 2002 it partnered with Matsushita Electric Industrial (now Panasonic) in home appliances. Between 2004 and 2006 it surprised industry by taking over the TV-set operations of Thomson and the cellphone operations of Alcatel-Lucent, both of France. It is also known for its close relationships with Japanese electronics leaders such as Sony and Sharp on product sharing.

TCL's smartphone operations are growing rapidly, set to surpass LCD TV operation. Sales are rising quickly in the Americas.
