LOL!

BD Manufactures Processors and chips? Batteries? Panels (and not you don't have fabrication capability to make TFT or IPS or OLED, forget it). Only thing you have is called pcb manufacturing. India has that in massive droves.

If you are clueless and don't know, better to not post. Not our job to educate some Pajeet from Jhupripatti questioning things that don't concern him.....

Apna aukaat me raho - try to sell your cheap "Indianized" India-made garbage to locals, while we sell our cellphones and notepads to advanced economies using world standards....

LOL!

Well we have in India many people who say India makes LED lamps. It does surely make modules. But LEDs are actually imported.

Its same with Walton. It imports LEDs, defusers for backlight, panels and it packages modules for TV.

I mean you are telling me that Walton can make LCD panel without fabricating TFTs. Well, it can not. And NO, bangladesh does not fabricate TFTs.

Leave "LCD panels from scratch", first start producing poly-silicon ingots for LTPS deposition.
Lets not do guess work with your whatsapp university degree, better find whether walton does produce their LCD or not with evidence? Or keep shut.

Why would I post this? Since you are no fan of Bangladesh, you are no fan of our products.

Waste of my time. You are ignored.

@UKBengali bhai and I myself have posted videos countless times to these eight-pass andh-bhakts asking for 'evidence'. The videos clearly show IPS TFT panel production processes. What for when they are ignorant as anything?

These idiots can go google this themselves or go rot in the jhupdipattis where they came from. Sotoloker bacchara eto gadha jey cellphoner quality dekhey bojhena jey ei jinish USA tey export hobeyna kano?

Walton, taking Bangladesh to the world​


Rsz 1walton Factory Outside


December 15, 2021

In the early 1990s, the running joke about products made in Taiwan was that they would break after a single use. The reputation caught on to the point that there is a whole episode of Seinfeld dedicated to how bad “Made in Taiwan” umbrellas were back then. Now the world relies on microchips made in Taiwan. The moral of the story is, you might scoff at things when they start but what is really important is how they grow and evolve.

While Bangladesh isn’t known for electronic goods just yet, a homegrown company is now exporting smartphones to Germany. This would have been something people sneered at a few years ago, but the quality is on par with some of the most expensive global brands out there.

Walton started its journey six years after the 1971 Liberation War in the year 1977. And now, it is a rising star of Bangladesh and on its way to becoming our own Xiaomi.

The company was initially named Rizvi & Brothers, abbreviated as RB Group and later rebranded themselves as Walton Group in 2008.

Early that year, the brand started manufacturing refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners and compressors.

History of Walton- timeline

In the year 1992, the company started importing raw materials of CI Sheet as well as the marketing of finished goods.
In the following year, the RB Dairy Complex Ltd was built and later in 1995, Walton started its electrical and electronics business.
Soon after in 1998, it established Tricon Electronics Ltd and started the production of Televisions.

In 2001 RB Group of Companies Ltd got registered and expanded its business in the Electrical, Electronics and Automobile Sector.
In 2007, the group established factories of refrigerators, TV, AC, Motorcycles.

Walton first started its export business in the year 2010 and established a Television Manufacturing Plant in 2013.

In 2014, Walton established a manufacturing plant for kitchen appliances.

In 2016, Walton led with more than 60% market share in the Refrigerators and Home Appliances market.

Walton Refrigerators received a 5-star rating on energy efficiency and the company achieved the Best Tax Payer award in 2017. In the same year, it established a compressor and mobile phone manufacturing plant.

In 2018, Walton was awarded for excellence in export by HSBC and also achieved the National Environment Award.
Moreover, from early 2020, the company started exporting its diversified products to many European countries including Germany and Greece.

In the 2021-22 fiscal year (FY) alone, Walton aims to export $100 million worth of products to the international market.

Impact on the economy

For decades, Bangladesh has been mostly dependent on RMG exports, which can be very threatening for the economy to depend on one sector as any sudden shock can have huge impacts.

The new policy adopted by the Bangladeshi government is to diversify the export basket by encouraging the production of high quality electronic and technological products.

According to Walton’s Managing Director and CEO Golam Murshed, the group currently has a workforce of as many as 30,000 in a total of 90 production bases in a factory area of more than 750 acres.

Some of the products are IoT based Smart Refrigerator, Fridge, Freezer, Beverage Cooler, LED Television (Smart, Voice Control etc), Split Air Conditioner (Smart, Offline Voice Command etc), VRF, Compressor, Lift or Elevator, Laptop-Computer and Accessories, Mobile Phone (Smart and Feature), Home Appliances, Electrical Appliances, Hardware and Sanitary, Industrial Solutions etc.

In 2020, the export quality of Walton increased several times despite the dire situation of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic.

Along with meeting the local market’s demands, Walton is now exporting consumer electronics and home appliances in about 40 countries of Asia, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

Among the Walton products, the best exportable items are refrigerator, television, air conditioner, washing machine, microwave oven, compressor, fan and gas stove.

Many factors are currently depending on FTAs. “The main question is, will Bangladesh benefit from FTA or not. It seems like there are many challenges in obtaining benefits from FTAs. I hope Bangladesh will approach FTA deals considering all the factors,” Murshed added.

Meanwhile, Walton made a great success in expanding its global trades despite the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.
In the last couple of years, new export markets for Walton products have been created in over 12 countries of Europe including Germany, Greece, Ireland, Croatia, Spain, Poland, Romania and Italy.

Future plan

Walton has aimed to export $100 million worth of “Made in Bangladesh” labelled products to the world market in the current fiscal year of 2021-22.

“As part of this, we set a target to increase the export volume to $3 billion within 2025,” Walton CEO said.

In this context, Walton emphasized expanding its global brand business and the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) business as well.

The group is currently moving forward in the global market with a vision titled “Go Global 2030.”

That means Walton targets to become one of the top five best global electronics brands by the end of this decade.

To achieve the goal, the group has been moving ahead with a roadmap consisting of some short, mid and long term strategic plans.

By the year 2030, Walton targets to export products of $5 billion. At the same time, the Bangladeshi electronic giant aims to achieve $7 billion in revenue.

LOL! Look, big claims need bigger proof. If I am to believe that Walton produces TFT or OLED without any fabrication capacity, I need proof. Basic unit to manufacture an OLED or TFT based LCD is transistor. Small and thin. I am yet to see any Bangladeshi firm to manufacture that. So excuse me if I do not believe Bangladeshi pompous talk.

Bhai, be careful you may be speaking to one of nilgiris maybe reincarnations.


Remember that he used to make fun of Walton only having 250,000 US dollars in exports and now he must be mad that it is set to surpass 100 million US dollars in the fiscal set to end June 30 this year.

@Bilal9 type people think that Bangladeshi are richer than India. :rofl:
I think opinions like these have something to do with USA Bangla diaspora downtrodden status, even those that are US born

Reason for the above was divulged by another poster here

I doubt any rikshaw walas would be SMEs on manufacturing industry/electronics industry etc.

Not surprisingly people of such background limit their conversations to religious insults and verbal abuses.

Better to have conversations with someone actually from Walton.
