HONG KONG, May 11, 2022 / — SML Group (“SML”), a worldwide leader in digital identification technology and solutions provider, today announced the launch of its Technology Innovation Development Center (“TIDC”), a first-in-Hong Kong Radio Frequency Identification (“RFID”) inlay Research & Development (R&D) center and production hub. The new center is part of SML’s strategic long-term plans as it seeks to develop the technology ecosystem to power increasingly global operations that involve a growing pool of customers transitioning towards a digital-first future where every item will be tagged with a digital ID across markets.
With this center, SML will be empowered to grow its business operations globally and help customers in their pursuit towards a sustainable future. Wilson Chan, Chief Operating Officer of SML, said: “This center will enable SML’s expansion into strategic industries and thrive in a future where every item will have a digital identity. SML will work towards efficiently producing RFID tags that meet the highest standards of brands across industries.”
In a global market characterized by uneven quality of RFID inlays, an integral component of the RFID tag that carries item-level data, the center will allow SML to improve quality control by standardizing performance and enhancing reliability throughout both the R&D as well as the production process. The center demonstrates SML’s ambition to secure a leading role in enhancing inlay standards across the industry.
