Chennai, Aug 6: In a major boost up to 'Make In India', the Tech major and India’s largest computer manufacturer, Hewlett-Packard (HP) Inc stated that it has started PC manufacturing operations at electronics giant Flex’s facility in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu.
"HP, a long-standing partner in 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. He further added that with the inauguration of this new facility, we aim to strengthen our commitment to India and support the growth of the local manufacturing ecosystem.
Meanwhile, HP already has its manufacturing plant in Pantnagar district of Uttarakhand since 2006. "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," the company statement said.
The location of the plant provides it access to a nearby port and HP’s spare parts facility in Bengaluru, enabling the company to quickly procure materials from other parts of India and Asia. After Dell, which also has a plant at Sriperumbudur, HP will be the second company to manufacture PCs in Tamil Nadu. This will also help to create job opportunities in the manufacturing sector. This will also help in improving HP’s operational efficiencies in terms of improving their delivery turnaround time for the trade and consumers in South India, besides helping them save freight cost
