Gorenje, the Chinese-owned household appliances maker, is launching production of TV sets in Velenje this week.
More than 350 workers are already working at the Hisense Europe Electronic factory, and their number is to increase to 520 by the end of the month. As of next week, around 800 TV sets are to be produced a day. The investment in technological equipment is worth EUR 7 million. In the first phase, around 800 TV sets are to be produced a day, but when full production starts, two million sets should be produced a year. This is to be raised based on demand to almost four million TV sets a year in the next couple of years.
