Commenting on the new manufacturing plant and power banks, Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India said:

Xiaomi India has seen exponential growth in India and today it enjoys market leadership in the smartphone segment. I believe a key reason for our success in the smartphone segment has been our commitment to India. We want our India Mi Fans to enjoy the best quality technology at an affordable rate, and manufacturing locally helps us achieve our vision. We are extending our commitment of building a truly localized company and hope to bring the ecosystem of world’s best powerbanks to India with our partners Hipad Technology.

We spoke to the team at Hipad Technology a year back, and encouraged them to look at the Indian market to set up a Power Bank facility. Hipad is our partner in China for Power Banks and their constant support has helped Xiaomi become the most popular powerbank brand in the world. We thought with the growing market size of Power Banks in India, it is important that we bring our manufacturing partners to India to provide Mi Fans a truly localized product and extend our commitment to Make in India.
