sumsung 2Leading global TV manufacture Samsung Electronics Co. will close its only television (TV) production site in China as part of its efforts to restructure its global manufacturing sites to improve efficiency amid increasing competition.

Samsung Electronics has decided to shut down its sole TV factory in China, which is in Tianjin, by the end of November. About 300 workers will be affected by the closure.

An unnamed official from Samsung Electronics said the latest factory closure was part of the company’s ongoing efforts to restructure its global manufacturing sites to boost efficiency amid increasing competition across the board ranging from smartphone production to TV production.

In 2018, Samsung Electronics closed down its smartphone manufacturing factory in Tianjin and another one in Huizhou in southeast Guangdong Province last year. In July, the Korean tech giant decided to halt operation of its last personal computer (PC) production facility in Suzhou, stepping up efforts to increase business efficiency in China.

After the closure, Samsung Electronics will operate only three manufacturing sites in China – two semiconductor plants, each, in Suzhou and Xi’an and a home appliance factory in Suzhou.

三星大撤退:继PC工厂关停后 中国唯一电视工厂也将关闭

继上月三星关停在华最后一家PC工厂后,该公司周一表示,公司已决定在11月份关闭在中国的唯一电视机工厂。

这位发言人证实,位于天津的电视机工厂是三星电子公司在中国唯一的电视生产基地。三星早些时候在一份声明中表示,这一决定是其生产设施“持续努力提高效率”的一部分。

多方数据表明,三星关闭这座电视工厂可能与其电视产品在华市场份额下滑有关。

据中怡康统计数据,三星电视今年上半年在中国市场的累计销量为41万台,比去年同期减少8.33%。另有公开数据显示,2019年三星电视在中国的市场销量仅为100多万台,占比2%左右,排名前五的均为国产电视品牌。

三星电视在华及周边国家销量订单已不足消化三星天津电视工厂的产能,随着三星电视海外订单向印度、越南、巴西、墨西哥等地流失,这座工厂的运转终于变得举步维艰。

该工厂总共约有300名工人。不过三星拒绝就工人的人数置评。最新的撤退让三星在中国只剩下位于苏州的家电工厂,以及位于苏州和西安的芯片生产设施。
