South Africa: Skyworth delivers 70,000 STBs
September 8, 2015
Skyworth Digital Technology, a global provider of smart home solutions, has announced its factory in Johannesburg – co-owned by local company BUA Africa – has successfully completed its first shipment, delivering a total of 70,000 set-top boxes across South Africa.
Skyworth Digital chose to invest in the plant to boost its presence in South Africa and contribute to the country’s economy.
“Skyworth Digital invests in its customers, their countries and the local people in order to foster long-term relationships, and so our strategy is to put our factories as close to where our customers are as possible,” said Angélique Boissy, VP Global Sales at Skyworth Digital. “This initiative, which we call ‘edge manufacturing’, not only allows us to contribute to our customers’ local economies, but also speeds up time-to-market and reduces operating expenses: savings which can then be passed on to our customers.”
