This is in continuation of the agreement signed in December last year where both sides created a task force to work out the details. FirstBuild is co-creating community backed by GE Appliances, a Haier company.

The company claimed that it has already engaged thousands of makers in person and online to invent a new world of appliances. The new location in India further strengthens our community by creating a place for the designers, engineers and innovators to develop working prototypes, measure market feasibility, and then build and deliver innovations for the home, said the company.

“FirstBuild entities have harnessed community insights and the power of the maker movement to change how products come to market around the world,” Melanie Cook, Chief Operating Officer for GE Appliances. “The new creative center is one of a kind in the Hyderabad region where budding creators will find an open community focused on building a new generation of appliances that transform the home. As the country’s largest makerspace, T-Works is the ideal location for FirstBuild India to begin its journey.”

The FirstBuild location in India joins other makerspaces in Louisville, Kentucky, which opened in 2014, and in Shanghai, China, which opened in 2017. “All locations share a mission to create a socially engaged community of home enthusiasts focused on the next great idea. By letting the community influence the product from the very beginning, FirstBuild quickly delivers products that consumers want,” said the company.
