In the 1980s, with the opening of the Chinese economy to the international market, Liebherr, a leading German appliance maker, sold its technology and manufacturing know-how to a small refrigeration factory in Qingdao. And, in 1984, Qingdao Refrigerator Co. Ltd. was born.
In the early 1990's, the company took a new name, Haier – an abbreviation of Liebherr – to become the Haier Group Corporation. Capitalising on the new management and brand, Haier quickly transformed itself into the number one appliance company in China.
