Tech major HP on Wednesday said it has started manufacturing operations at contract electronics manufacturer Flex Ltd’s facility at Sriperumbudur near Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
This expansion is a part of HP’s long-term commitment to manufacture desktops and workstations in India.
“HP, a long-standing partner in the India’s digital transformation journey, is committed to providing technology that can enable people and businesses of India to achieve their true potential,” said Ketan Patel, Managing Director, HP India Market.
HP, however, did not disclose details about investment and capacity under the contract manufacturing arrangement with Flex.
“The plant will manufacture desktops and workstations that enable HP to meet current and future customer needs, while driving greater operational efficiency.
Its geographical location provides it access to a nearby port and HP’s spare parts facility in Bengaluru,” a company statement said.
The company says that this facility provides easy access to a nearby port in Bengaluru for HP’s spare parts facility. HP plans to procure materials from other parts of India and from Asia.
“We are delighted to partner with HP to manufacture desktops and workstations in India. We look forward to bringing our advanced manufacturing capabilities along with our supply chain expertise to this engagement,” said Richard Hopkins, Senior Vice President, India Operations at Flex.
