Recently, the reporter visited RELX’s exclusive factory in Shenzhen and directly felt the production process of electronic cigarette. The factory is said to be the world’s largest exclusive electronic cigarette factory, covering an area of more than 20000 square meters, with four floors in total. Three to four floors are the pod production workshop, two floors are mainly the assembly of batteries and device, and one is the packaging and warehouse. With more than 4000 workers, the peak production capacity can reach 50 million pods per month.
Different from the workshop operation of most electronic cigarette factories, RELX’s exclusive factory management is very strict. Before entering the pod production workshop, all people must wear dust-proof clothes and go through the air shower to remove dust. The environmental requirements here even exceed many food enterprises, reaching the GMP 100000 level clean workshop standard, to ensure the clean and sanitary production process of pods.
Entering the workshop, you can see the production line of pods. In just 17 months, RELX’s production of electronic pods increased 160 times. Let’s take a look at the pod production line.
In the specialized factory of RELX, the quality supply chain team with more than 150 people and Smoore jointly control each process of incoming materials, production and finished products, 58 inspection processes, and implement the industry’s most strict sampling process.
According to the reporter, the number of pods consumed for quality sampling in RELX in one year is more than 2 million, which alone has exceeded the total number of pods sold by many e-cigarette brands in one year.
