It is known that the qualification examination of official supplier is very strict. To become the official supplier, the candidates not only need to provide high-quality equipment and services, but also need to pass the strict examination in production management, social responsibility and sustainable development, etc.
Gree winning the contracts of the world’s top events is not fresh news. As early as 2008, Gree won the bidding of commercial air conditioners of “Media Village” in Beijing Olympic Games and was awarded “Excellent Supplier of Air Conditioning Equipment” by the Organizing Committee of Beijing Olympic Games. Later, Gree also won the biddings of several events, such as World Cup in South Africa, Africa Cup of Nations in Angola, Asian Games in Guangzhou, Universiade in Shenzhen, Winter Olympics in Sochi, FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Ice Hockey World Championships and so on.
As the first Chinese home appliances enterprise to make investment in Brazil, Gree established production base in Manaus, Brazil as early as 2001, so the brand image and quality of Gree had been deeply rooted among Brazilians. Gree will not only provide high-quality products and services to Olympic Games, but also fulfill their social responsibilities, spreading Olympic spirits to global users and sharing the joys of Olympic Games.
Until now, the installation of Gree air conditioners in the venue of opening and closing ceremonies, athletes' village and media village have been completed. Gree Brazil has set up a special service team with sufficient technicians for Rio Olympic Games, to cheer for the athletes from all over the world.
