Major General Ibne Fazal Shayekhuzzaman, chief engineer of the military engineering services (MES) of the Bangladesh Army, said Walton has contributed to the economic development of Bangladesh by manufacturing import substitution electronics.

“They must be given priority in the country’s economic development. This must be guaranteed at all levels, both individual and institutional, ”he noted.

The Chief Engineer of the Bangladesh Army made the remark after a visit to Walton Hi-Tech Park in Chandra in Gazipur last Tuesday (December 7, 2021).

Led by him, a team of 76 engineers from the Bangladesh Army visited the factory of the country’s electronics giant, Walton, with the aim of seeing the advanced manufacturing progress of locally finished electronics as well as the actual progress of local high-tech industries.

On Tuesday morning, senior Walton officials greeted military engineers at the factory premises with bouquets of flowers. The director of Walton Hi-Tech Industries Limited (WHIL) SM Mahbubul Alam was present during the factory visit by the MES delegations.

Among others, Deputy Managing Director of WHIL, Alamgir Alam Sarkar, Senior Managing Directors (Retired) Shahadat Alam, Md. Sirajul Islam, Tanvir Rahman, Yusuf Ali, Sohel Rana and Yasir Al Imran, Executive Directors Rakib Uddin, Tanvir Anjum, Mohsin Ali Mollah, media advisor Enayet Ferdous and a few other senior officials were also present.

After the factory tour, Major General Ibne Fazal Shayekhuzzaman said: “Today I am very surprised to visit the Walton factory. They have a vision with great human values ​​and foresight. I think if I could come to the Walton factory three years ago it would be much better. I will try to send new engineers who will join MES to visit the Walton factory.

Appreciating Walton’s research and innovation activities, he added, “You are the children of the country. Walton Factory is a complete package. Walton’s overall growth makes great sense. This is due to their advanced research activities. That everyone should follow.

SM Mahbubul Alam said that Walton is a trusted name for domestic and overseas buyers because of its high quality products. We recently participated in the Sodex international trade fair in Turkey. There, we received a huge response from global buyers for Walton products made in Bangladesh. In particular, revolutionary innovations such as Walton’s offline voice control or the talking air conditioner amazed them.

Inviting government and institutional buyers to visit the Walton factory, he said Walton has the ability to manufacture custom products as per demand. Like the ready-to-wear sector, the electronics and technology industries also have the opportunity and the potential to become one of the major markets in the world.

SM Mahbubul Alam added that economic development would be accelerated if domestic products were given priority at government and institutional level. Employment will increase. It will be easier to conquer the world market. We don’t want anyone from Bangladesh to go abroad as a worker. On the contrary, even better workplaces should be created in the country. Foreigners must come to work in Bangladesh. This is how we are going to build the country. It will be easier when you like the products of the country, you use them yourself.

Upon arrival at the factory premises, guests first visit Walton’s well-equipped product exhibition center. Later, they observed the production process of Walton’s refrigerators, air conditioners, RVDs, elevators and elevators.
