About Tatung Mexico
For all you know, you may have watched the World Cup on television made on Mexico’s northern border, most likely in Tijuana-Mexicali area of Baja California or Ciudad Juarez in the state of Chihuahua. It is there, in Ciudad Juarez, that the Taiwanese electronics manufacturing services (EMS) and original design manufacturer (ODM) giant, Tatung, has the settle down.
One of the stronger players in a sector that has established Mexico as a major exporter, Tatung was drawn by the country’s geographical location – next door to the world’s largest consumer of electronic products – and lower duties as a result of its trade agreements with other nations, among other advantages.
Tatung’s factory in Ciudad Juárez, which began operating fifteen years ago with a PC assembly program for Hewlett-Packard and Compaq, has been assembling flat-screen television for the last eight years, even since corporate headquarters decided to transfer PC productions to its Asian plants to reduce cost and allocate television production to Mexico.
The first televisions Tatung Mexico assembled were LCD screens, which, "consume half the electricity a cathode ray television does”. That technology was replaced with LED technology to produce, a “more environmentally friendly television given its low electricity consumption and enhanced quality”.
