In late 2012 Chinese appliance and HVAC OEM Hisense began constructing what it said will be the world's largest research and development base, in Qingdao, China.

The new facility will carry out R&D across the gamut of Hisense industry technology. Its biggest global markets are refrigerators, air-conditioners, and TVs.

The new R&D facility will cover 430 acres and the company said it will have "tens of thousands of R&D employees."

The new facility replaces the company's existing R&D center on a 50-acre site in Qingdao. The company said the old facility, in a former Hisense factory, can't meet the demand of the company's rapid growth.

The company intends to attract global talent to staff the new facility, including through overseas recruitment, global cooperation, and acquisitions. In the last year, the company has acquired Canada's Flextronics, U.S.-based Archcom Chip, Huaya, Taiwan Laser, and others. It said dozens of technology leaders have already joined the company from the United States, Japan, and South Korea.

The new Qingdao base will serve as the hub for the company's global R&D network, which includes facilities in the United States, Canada, Germany, and seven other regions.
