Walton, a local electronics and ICT product manufacturer, is going to export ‘Made-in-Bangladesh’ smartphones to the United States (US) for the first time.
Walton will supply its smartphones to a renowned American brand as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), said a press release.
The export is likely to be inaugurated officially by Finance Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal, along with Posts and Telecommunications Minister Mustafa Jabbar and State Minister for Information and Communication Technology Division Zunaid Ahmed Palak on March 1 at Walton Digi-Tech Industries Limited (WDIL) in Chandra of Gazipur.
WDIL Managing Director SM Monjurul Alam said, “Within a short time, good quality and advanced features of the locally finished smartphones have drawn the buyers’ attention and faith.”
“Now, Walton-made international standard smartphones are going to be exported to the US while Europe, Australia and other developed nations would be our next export destination soon,” he added.
Last year, Walton inked an agreement with US-based one of the leading E-commerce platforms ‘Amazon’ to market ‘Made-in-Bangladesh’ labelled electronics and ICT devices in the US market.
Shortly, Walton brand laptop, computer, mobile phone, compact mini refrigerator, home and electrical appliances will be available for sale on Amazon website.
