The facilities will include a digital intelligent "super factory" to promote automatic and intelligent manufacturing, according to United. The factory will be powered by cutting-edge technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things), big data, and artificial intelligence to achieve flexible scheduling, configuration, intelligent decision-making, automatic production, and intelligent operations in manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics, as well as increase its supply capacity, the company said.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
