Xiaomi today announced that Holitech Technology which is its key component supplier has inaugurated its first component manufacturing plant in India located in Greater Noida in the state of Uttar Pradesh. The company was invited by Xiaomi back in Q1 2018 to investigate local manufacturing opportunities during its ‘Supplier Investment Summit’. Last year Holitech Technology signed an MOU with the state of Andhra Pradesh to start local manufacturing in the city of Tirupati.
Holitech Technology also announced that it will invest about US$200 million over three years in the country and would be manufacturing Compact Camera Modules (CCM), Capacitive Touch Screen module (CTP), Thin Film Transistor (TFT), Flexible Printed Circuits (FPC), and fingerprint module locally.
The plant is spread across 4 factories and spans over 25000 square meters in the city of Greater Noida and will start mass production with a production capacity of over 300 million components per year. It also boasts of class 1000 and class 100 clean room, an industry first, said the company. A cleanroom is a contained space where provisions are made to reduce particulate contamination and control other environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and pressure.
Holitech Technology in partnership with the government of Uttar Pradesh is also organising a Supplier Investment Summit with Holitech Technology component suppliers on 16th June, 2019 where over 15 of its suppliers are visiting the state of Uttar Pradesh.
It is ready and will be in production within Q3, 2019 and it aims to generate 6000 jobs in three years.
