TCL as a slogan is a very ample representation of the company’s aspirations to make it as one of the well-known, most trusted and innovative corporations in China that dominates the consumer electronics industry.
Founded in 1981, TCL has become one of the largest consumer electronics enterprises in China with a global presence and has three listed companies under its umbrella: TCL Corporation (SZ.000100), TCL Multimedia (HK.1070) and TCL Communication (HK.2618).
Today, TCL did not only make it to China’s top enterprises but has also penetrated the world market as well.

Currently, TCL Corporation has set up four business units – TCL Multimedia Holdings, TCL Communication Holdings, China Star Optoelectronics Technology and TCL Home Appliances Group, as well as six business groups – System Technology Unit, Techne Group, Emerging Business Group, Investment Group, Highly Information Industry and Real Estate Group.

It even has its own television sets and mobile phones as well as carries the world renowned Thomson televisions and worldwide famous Alcatel mobile phones.
