At IFA 2023, with the concept of “Connect to Extraordinary”, Haier Europe showcases its innovative solutions and cutting-edge services that are shaping “The new era of Living”, where IoT innovations create a true range of smart and connected experiences to meet customers’ needs. Thanks to AI and new technologies, Haier, Hoover, and Candy products can create home environments where living ecosystems develop a platform of integrated and all-encompassing services, showing how technology can have a significant impact on the improvement of everyday life and on the environment.
Since the acquisition of Candy Hoover Group in 2019, Haier Europe has massively invested in its product and industrial portfolio as well as in people and brand leadership and the company is now among the top players in the industry. Haier Europe ranks 4th with a market share of 8.3%1, has 7 production facilities and operates with 45 commercial branches and about 10,000 employees.
Haier Europe is part of Haier Smart Home, the No. 1 company globally in major appliances for 7 years in a row and the only Home Appliances Company to be named as the World’s only IoT Ecosystem Brand in Kantar BrandZ’s “Most Valuable Global Brands 2023” ranking. Haier Smart Home has been also recognized as one of the most influential and respected companies in the world by being listed among the Fortune 500 companies for the sixth consecutive year.
“By designing “The new era of Living”, we are moving from creating products to designing experiences and scenarios: we are not only making people’s daily life easier, but also shaping the future of our society. – says Yannick Fierling, CEO Haier Europe. “This is made possible by our deep understanding of customers’ needs, thanks to our ‘Zero distance to consumers’ philosophy that allows us to realize users’ needs earlier and better and to provide them with innovative products. This is our way to becoming the first consumer choice for smart home and leader in the industry in Europe”.
The Company also aims to build a Home-Energy-Ecosystem able to manage energy of the entire home according to smart grid, interconnecting domestic appliances, HVAC and Solar and Photovoltaic systems, and let Haier’s hOn app orchestrate all devices. Haier Europe is targeting an energy-home-scenario by bringing a complete solution able to provide tangible benefits for consumers in monitoring and reducing energy consumptions and related costs. In this context, the company has recently launched Haier Nahui New Energy, the business unit dedicated to green energy, as Haier is expanding its ambition to become a leading player also in distributed smart energy solutions.
Key driver of Haier Europe’s strategy is the pledge to sustainability: through the Science Based Targets Initiative, the company has committed to setting emissions reduction targets by adopting a scientific and calculated approach and pursuing digital transformation to drive efficiency and reduce environmental impacts.
Haier’s “Zero distance to consumer” philosophy is guided by the Haier Attitude and revolves around encouraging colleague entrepreneurship to create maximum value for customers and consumers. Following its own unique business model, Haier Europe encourages co-creation and ecosystems among brands, users and partners, exploring and developing new scenarios and integrated experiences for consumers in the IoT era.
