In the first two months, there was a shortage of masks in China, and many companies in the non mask industry also switched to produce masks. BYD became the world's largest mask factory in more than one month, with a production capacity of 15 million / day.
In contrast, Gree, as a well-known electrical group, also began to produce masks by itself. However, Gree's mask production capacity has been low, only 600000 / day.
But the price of Gree masks is not expensive. In mid March,One box of kn95 protective disposable masks for 275 yuan (50 pieces), equivalent to 5.5 yuan each;A box of disposable medical masks costs 150 yuan (50 pieces), equivalent to 3 yuan each。
Why does Gree not expand mask capacity? Gree electrical chairman Dong Mingzhu said in an interview tonight,I think I'm just a green leaf, a foil, not really turning it into a main business. (making masks) more reflects the social value of being a large enterprise.
