China-based Qiao Xing Universal Telephone Inc. has signed an agreement with Atlinks, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Thomson, under which Atlinks will purchase mobile phone handset products and wireless desktop phones from its subsidiary Huizhou Qiao Xing Communication Industry Ltd.

The initial purchase from Atlinks for 2005 will be $17 million, with the target shipment on Aug. 5. Atlink is slated to place more orders for various mobile phones and wireless fixed phones on a continuous basis.

"To be able to conclude sales with the Thomson Group indicates that our offering meets the high standards of the international market, said Wu Rui Lin, chairman of Qiao Xing, in a statement. "We are positive that there will be more supply contracts of our products by Huizhou Qiao Xing with major global players in the near future."

Huizhou Qiao Xing, a widely recognized supplier of fixed line telephones in China, belongs to the same company group with China mobile phone company CEC Telecom Co. Ltd (CECT). In the second half of 2004 it started to independently distribute its self-developed GSM mobile phones, after having produced mobile phones for CECT for more than two years. Huizhou Qiao Zing has established 42 distributors of a provincial level across China and is aggressively expanding its overseas market.
