The largest manufacturer of consumer electronics and household appliances in Belarus, the Gorizont enterprise, will begin mass production of laptops in November. Yuri Predko, Director General of OAO Gorizont Holding Management Company, announced this.
“We are ready to present more than 80 models to the market. Serial and mass production will begin in November. We have already received and signed contracts and orders. Today we have created a first level program, they will be installed on computers,” the CEO said. According to him, the company is also preparing to release a mini-computer that is attached to monitors. “Because along with laptops, monitors will also be produced in the production process. Today we have more than 100 monitor models that we will introduce to the market at the end of the year” Predko said.
He noted that the company has restructured its sales and production policy and produces products only on order. “We do not have warehouses, we produce a large number of products. I would even say that we reached a unique volume. So, we produce and sell more than 200 thousand TV sets per month, earlier we made 200 thousand per year, and today we produce 200 thousand per month,” the CEO said.
He said that the company supplies products to 18 countries under sanctions. “The situation has changed a bit now. For example, before we did not supply to Mongolia, now we have a market in Mongolia, Kazakhstan was in a pause, and now we are starting there [поставлять] and to Armenia,” the CEO said.
Recall that in early September, the first Belarusian laptop Lukashenka himself announced. A little bit later details about the device.
