      Meiken operates mainly in services such as manufacturing and selling integrated circuit chip and products, manufacturing power electronic component, producing semiconductor discrete device, and R&D in emerging energy technologies.

      Ever since 2020, Midea Group has decided on the following strategies:

      First, enter automobile industry with a large-scale acquisition. In 2020, Midea acquired partial shares of Beijing Hekang New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. for 740 million yuan. To this date, Midea has built a car-home interconnection system with 5 car brands worldwide, and realized remote control of smart home appliances.

      Third, make timely adjustment to its business portfolio. Due to rapid business expansion and strategic focus, Midea now has five major business branches: smart home business, electro-mechanical operation, HVAC and building service, robotics and automation business unit, and digitalization.
