Haier Europe is expanding its manufacturing footprint in Europe with a new dishwasher factory in the company’s industrial site in Eskişehir, Turkey. With an investment of more than 40 million euro, the new factory will have full capacity of 1 million units per year and is equipped with solar panels in line with the company’s sustainability commitment to reduce environmental footprint within its manufacturing processes.
