E-cigarette brand, known for its disposable vape devices, Geek Bar has made an investment of $146 million in a new production facility as part of its plans of growth in the UK.
The facility will be built in the Zhuhai National Hi-Tech Industrial Development District in China’s Guangdong province, and according to sources, the assembly will be 90% automated “to provide the highest levels of precision and performance” and will have “intelligent detection technology” during key stages of the manufacturing process to be able to trace the products from factory to customer to defeat counterfeit and illicit sales.
“Digitisation and smart manufacturing will offer great benefits, not just in production volume and efficiencies, but also in assuring retailers and consumers in the UK and around the world that our products are made to consistently high-quality standards and can be enjoyed safely,” said Allen Yang, CEO of Geek Bar.
The facility is expected to be completed in two years.
