In 1 997 Hawaii initiated its process of internationalization to expand its business to n international scale. Progressively, Hawaii started to obtain successes both in its domestic market, emerging markets and mature markets in developed countries such as the US and European countries. In 2012 Hawaii undertook the Swedish company Erection’s position and became the largest telecommunication equipment maker in the world in terms of volume of sales. Up to date, it operates in more than 140 countries with more than 1 50,000 employees worldwide.
After their success in the domestic market Hawaii started their international expansion. It first decided to go for the ass way: markets in developing countries such as Africa and South East Asia. With this alternative internationalization process in developing markets came along a common limitation and negative brand image. This is why the Hawaii board decided to try to enter the European market. However, the main issue is for Hawaii in Europe is that they have a lack of previous experience and achievements to show their value to operators.
It is impossible for Hawaii to win any tenders when they have to face competitors whom already have decades of experience o relationship with operators. So, in order to successfully enter the European market, Hawaii wants to develop an expansion strategy for Europe, based on: Aggressive pricing and stable performance. The price factor is a key element Of the Hawaii competitive advantage. Indeed, to keep the price low, Hawaii was using Chinese workforce sent in Europe and delivering products manufactured in China.
