Xiaomi sets up second manufacturing plant in India to boost production

20 March 2017 0

On the sidelines of launching the Redmi 4A and announcing the successor to the Redmi 3S, Xiaomi has now set up their second factory in India at Sri City in Andhra Pradesh. Although the company hasn't given an exact number, the company claims that they will now be manufacturing one phone per second in India.

The company entered the Indian market in 2014 and started manufacturing locally a year later with the help of Foxconn. Manu Jain, the Xiaomi India said,

While I cannot disclose the exact capacity, I can tell you that we will be able to manufacture one phone per second whenever the lines are running. The two factories combined will provide employment to about 5,000 people, 90 per cent of which are women.

The new production unit will help Xiaomi meet about 95-percent of their smartphone demand in India, considering the devices go in a matter of seconds after going on flash sales. Jain further added, "The smartphone market in India will increase from 110 million units per annum to 200 million plus units in the upcoming three to five years."
