TCL’S GLOBAL FOOTPRINT

TCL’s commitment to innovation is shown throughout our 35 research centers around the world – including one in Silicon Valley and a joint venture lab with MIT in Boston. The global size of the brand gives us the unique ability to bring innovation and industry-leading technologies to our product lineup.

Our partnership with streaming leader Roku has received huge industry and consumer acclaim. WIRED called our TCL Roku TV “the first Smart TV worth using.” In 2017, PC Mag and NY Times’ Wirecutter both selected our TVs as the best of the year and we have been consistently one of the best reviewed TVs by consumers on Amazon.com and other leading online retailers. And this year, TCL is excited to build on its award-winning TCL Roku TV lineup.

Chairman Li

TCL’s Chairman, Li Dongsheng, is the original founder of TCL. As a boy, Li was an excellent student, but upon graduation from high school worked in an agricultural cooperative—a common path in the early days of the Cultural Revolution. He would spend his days performing rigorous manual labor, but would spend his nights reading and studying, dreaming of a brighter future.

Fortunately, a brighter future arrived in 1977 under China’s Open Door policy, which reestablished University Entrance examinations. With more than 5 million people taking that first test and space for less than 5% to be accepted, it was the most competitive scholastic test in modern Chinese history. These scholars were considered among the best and brightest of their generation. Li was accepted to Hua Nan Polytechnic University and graduated in 1982 with an electrical engineering degree.

After earning his degree, Li began his career at a cassette tape factory that had opened a year earlier with a $600 loan from the local government. With China’s economy accelerating, Li and his colleagues eventually decided to move into what they believed was the next big thing, telephones. By 1985, Li was named CEO of TCL Telecommunication Equipment Company Limited – or simply TCL for short.

By 1989, TCL was one of the biggest phone manufacturers in China. Bolstered by its rapid growth, TCL entered a new product category in 1992 when it built its first TV. Decades later, the former technician at a cassette tape factory is the Chairman of a company that had more than $15 billion in sales last year and remains committed to the company’s innovation and growth.
