Vertical Integration

We craft every detail for you

TCL is vertically integrated, which means we make our own stuff. What’s that mean to you? Being able to manufacture the most expensive parts of a product ourselves means you’ll enjoy quality, technology, and value, you never thought possible.

Display innovation


TCL has invested over $30 billion in state-of-the-art facilities where we create innovative display technologies and develop new production techniques for phones and TVs.

Vertical integration


TCL owns the largest major appliance factory in the world, among many mighty manufacturing facilities. Our latest panel factory measures 11,129,882 ft². That's nearly 260 acres!

Built to perform


We mold our own cabinets, produce our own boards, and even our speaker drivers are made by TCL. That is all to ensure consistent performance and quality.

Top tech supplier


Last year, TCL produced over 40 million phones, nearly 10 million air conditioners, and more than 30 million TVs globally. That scale helps grow TCL's importance as a major tech supplier.



Always innovating


TCL's commitment to innovation is shown throughout our 35 research centers around the world – including one in Silicon Valley.

TCL Cares

TCL is a company that cares. But it’s more than a feel-good phrase, it’s what we live by. TCLers live by four simple rules that guide our decisions and how we operate daily:

#TCLcares for our users.  It is our responsibility to add joy and simplification to their lives by innovating and advancing technology. 

#TCLcares for our employees.  It is our commitment to provide an environment that embraces diversity, excellence, learning, and laughter. 

#TCLcares for the communities we serve.  We are all one and we are committed to find ways to give back and make a positive impact. 

#TCLcares for our environment.  We have an obligation to minimize our footprint on the planet our users and employees call home.
