PV Desk : The country’s largest electronics giant Walton exported for the first time locally-made various sorts of parts of fridge to Indonesia-an island country in Southeast Asian region.
On last Thursday (February 15), a container ship, loaded with fridge parts manufactured by Walton, left for Indonesia in response to an order made by an Indonesian fridge manufacturing company from Chittagong port. .
The parts included: compressors, refrigerators doors, refrigerator door hinges, drawers, door plastic shelf, refrigerator cabinet body, power cables and plugs, poly bags, carton packages box for refrigerator with poly foam etc.
To this context, Walton Group’s International Marketing Head Md. Roquibul Islam said, “Walton has been exporting world-class fridges to more than 20 countries of Asia, Middle-east and Africa regions. Now, the new mission of Walton and Bangladesh is to start in international markets with the label ‘Made in Bangladesh’ imprinted on different sorts of parts of refrigerators.”
He added that, “Implementation of this mission has started through sending fridge parts to Indonesia.”
He hopes that Waltot-made fridges parts would be exported to most of the refrigerator manufacturing units of the world’s different countries in future.
Walton authorities said they installed state-of-the art technologies and advanced machineries in the refrigerator manufacturing unit of Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited in Chandra, Gazipur, in order to manufacture world-class fridges of different types.
For example, high-powered efficient frost and non-frost refrigerators with inverter technology compressors, tempered-glass-door refrigerators, IoT based smart refrigerators that could be operated by the users’ smartphones from any corner of the world.
Engineers of Walton RnD said they are manufacturing world-class refrigerators and different sorts of parts like compressors compatible with the world’s latest technology.
The parts include: gasket, gas-stripe and magnetic-stripe using non-phthalate plasticizer with the European technology’s extrusion machine, automatic magnet insertion machine and welding machine, refrigerator body, refrigerator door hinge, inner cabinet body, drawer, door plastic shelf etc.
Walton Group’s Senior Operative Director Uday Hakim said, “Most of the global fridge manufacturing companies outsourced different sorts of parts for their refrigerators rather than producing all essential parts. In this case, Bangladeshi brand Walton is manufacturing not only different technologies fridges with eye-catching designs but also all essential parts of fridges at its own factory.”
“As a result, Walton has been able to ensure international standard of its fridges and thus they are bringing huge foreign currencies through export,”
“I think that export of fridge parts would further increase the positive image of Bangladesh in the global hi-tech appliance markets,” he added.
The industry insiders said the local brand Walton is opening up new era in the country’s electronics appliance manufacturing industry. The latest initiative of Walton has smoothed the implementation path of the incumbent government’s vision of registering US$ 60 billion export earnings by 2021.
