November 8, 2019, CHONGQING – Leading global smart device brand OPPO today launched its Chongqing Intelligent Technology Park. The campus will serve as an important production base and logistics center that houses smart manufacturing, automated warehousing and software and hardware R&D.
Located in the Yubei district of Chongqing, OPPO’s smart technology park covers an area of 1,524 mu (102 hectares). With a planned construction area of 1.33 million square meters, the two-phase project will be completed by 2024.
The overall park layout features a central area surrounded by a 2.5km ‘eco-loop’ that connects four groups of complexes including R&D buildings. The tech park represents an ‘all-in-one’ supply chain that combines software and hardware R&D, mobile network, smart manufacturing and logistics - all in one campus.
Phase I of the park will bring in over 13,000 employees and boast an annual capacity of 30 million smartphones. Once fully completed, the tech park will have an annual capacity of 100 million smart devices and resulting in the direct employment of 35,000 people.
