Smart home OEM Skyworth Digital establishes Latin America HQ and factory in Mexico

Shenzhen Skyworth Digital Technology Co. LTD., a STB and smart home solution provider, announced a major investment in the Latin America region, with the opening of a new headquarters and factory in Mexico.

Boosting employment in the region, the manufacturing facility in Guadalajara will produce both Direct-to-Home (DTH) and cable STBs. The headquarters will be located in Mexico City’s Plaza Carso district, one of Mexico’s top business areas.

Skyworth Digital’s investment follows significant success in the region, with the company estimating it will ship 70,000 STBs a month. It has already established factories in Brazil and Argentina and is playing a leading role in Latin America’s Analog Switch Off (ASO) projects, working alongside top tier operators. Globally, Skyworth Digital shipped 30 million set-top boxes in 2015, making it the third biggest set-top manufacturer in the world.

Our Latin American customers will also benefit, with our new location enabling us to provide solutions tailored to their individual needs.”
