Heon-Gil Choi, the CEO of Qlight has announced that the Qidong Factory in Jiangsu Province, China will complete construction and start operation in January 2020. Headquartered in Korea, Qlight entered the Chinese market in 2000 with their Shanghai factory and has since been producing industrial LED lightings and signal information equipment.
In order to meet the increasing demand for Qlight’s products in China and around the world, the company has expanded from their current Shanghai Plant to a brand new state-of-the-art 12,500m’ factory in the Qidong Binhai Industrial Complex. This factory will be the largest of its kind in the signal information equipment industry in China. Furthermore, the existing Shanghai plant will be converted into a sales site to provide better support to our customers in China and strengthen our competitiveness in the world market.
Qlight will also increase its product portfolio to include a lineup of LED work lights for construction equipment, explosion-proof LED lighting, aviation obstruction lights, and wireless controlled signal information devices for smart factories. The new Qidong factory is streamlined to a single manufacturing process flow to improve productivity from receiving, assembly, final inspection and shipment of the finished products.
In order to ensure continued leadership in the industrial signaling industry, Qlight’s Qidong plant has a reliability center, a clean room, and a production floor temperature and humidity management system which will allow it to introduce Surface Mount Technology (SMT) equipment in the future. These new facilities and future capabilities will improve the overall yield and quality of their products. This will not only enhance the growth of related industries in Korea and China, but also take the company a step closer to becoming the unrivaled leader in the signal information equipment industry.
