What about the Joint Venture between Linuo and Germany
- Product quality: Flat-plate collectors that have little in common with European high-performance collectors are now being manufactured. The insulation used does not even meet the minimum requirements for fire protection! This insight is already evident in the simple review of the product description.
- Portfolio reduction: Vacuum tube production was sold out for cost reasons. What you will miss is that they eliminates "the most important draught horse" in the stable. In addition, it is not possible to guarantee a more or less constant quality through acquisitions from the market. Not to mention the doubtful performance of the tubes. Currently, it seems difficult to believe that the prerequisites for the Solar Keymark certificate could still be fulfilled.
- Portfolio extension: Because the competitor also are doing it, heat pumps, electric and gas heaters are now also being built. And with all products Linuo is willing to enter the international market, as the competitor does the same. This seems a bit unreflected and seems as if they just want to clone and copy the competitor - without setting their own unmistakable "brand of fragrance" and trusting their own strength (Quality and USP).
- Quality Assurance: Linuo has a huge, fully equipped test and inspection center with high quality equipment. But what good is it, if you would have heard a pin fall in the respective areas, because apart from the office, none of the test areas are used consistently? The measuring and testing center, which was built according to ITW standards, has meanwhile moved and thus no longer seems to meet the requirements, according to our source from China in the opinion of the local properties.
