transforming industrial automation technology group

this time, Midea also announced that it has officially completed its transformation from a traditional household appliance enterprise to a technology giant

it took Midea three years to transform from a home appliance enterprise to a technology enterprise. Midea began to produce electric fans in 1980 and entered the household appliance industry.

Midea has completed the development of prototypes of nearly 30 categories of smart products and the interconnection of 30 smart items, preliminarily built the overall cloud platform of Midea smart home system, and cooperated with Alibaba,, Huawei and other enterprises. In 2015, in line with its dual intelligence strategy, Midea took a 5.4% stake in KUKA, and gradually increased. Until Midea issued a tender offer, Midea already held 13.51% of KUKA's shares

in addition to the gradual extension of Midea in business transformation, Midea also transformed in corporate governance. He Xiangjian, the founder of Midea Group, officially stepped down as the chairman of Midea Group and passed his position to an outsider Fang Hongbo rather than his only son hejianfeng. Midea officially entered the era of professional managers. Since then, Midea has launched the partnership plan in the home appliance industry, and the core management team will gradually complete the transformation from professional managers to partners
