Dahua Fakes Being American

Author: John Honovich, Published on Aug 10, 2016

Robbed from the Hikvision playbook, now Dahua takes it turn.

Dahua, China's second largest manufacturer, is ramping up its marketing.

Dahua announced a new ad campaign calling themselves a 'California treasure' comparable to the California Gold Rush:

Who Is Dahua Technology?

Dahua Technology USA is the regional sales / support office (with ~50 employees) for the Zhejiang Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. (with ~10,000 employees).

China is the foundation of Dahua's business, its R&D, its manufacturing, etc. Dahua USA's regional office, with ~0.5% of Zheijiang Dahua's employees, is based in Southern California.
