Xiaomi Starts PCBA Manufacturing In India, Opens 3 New Plants

Xiaomi проводит глобальную распродажу смартфонов и ноутбуков

Xiaomi additionally said that all of the assembly works are done by women.

The store is expected to carry the latest Mi smartphones along with Xiaomi's range of accessories and Mi ecosystem products. The new units have a capacity to produce two smartphones per second during operational hours.

The company's first PCBA manufacturing plant was set up in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. "Xiaomi is one of the pioneers in the country to start local assembly of PCBAs, and I believe we will continue to play a key role in transforming India into a global manufacturing hub".

Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone brand which has been reporting great year-on-year growth in India, has announced its first Printed Circuit Board Assembly unit along with three new smartphone plants to further strengthen its market share in the country.

Xiaomi today announced the opening of three more smartphone manufacturing plants in India, at the ongoing Xiaomi Supplier Investment Summit Event. And given that other major smartphone makers including Vivo and Huawei have recently championed in-display technology with pioneering new devices, there is strong incentive for Xiaomi to compete on this front.

The Opposition has become one, irrespective of the diktats of their respective leaders, to fight the Trinamool. Already unofficial alliances have been formed in Rampurhat and Mayureswar in Birbhum district.

Xiaomi made these announcements while kickstarting its first ever Supplier Investment Summit in India on Monday. The objective of the summit is to educate Xiaomi's global component suppliers about India's smartphone industry and encourage them to establish local bases in the country. These suppliers could potentially bring in as much as ₹15,000 crore in investment while creating as many as 50,000 jobs. "These are in partnership with Foxconn", Xiaomi VP and India Managing Director Manu Jain told reporters here.

The new manufacturing facilities should alleviate long-standing supply issues.
With the particular component making up nearly 50% of the value of a phone, Xiaomi is looking to save costs by manufacturing it locally. Xiaomi expects to ramp up its PCBA production to close to 100 percent of its locally-produced phones within the third quarter of the calendar year 2018.

Besides, a small number of phones are also being made in Noida with another partner - Hipad, he added. This is a significant move in Xiaomi's localization strategy as the company's first SMT (Surface Mount Technology) plant is dedicated towards local manufacturing of PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly) units in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu, in partnership with Foxconn.

The aim of the program is to improve the country's economy by providing job opportunities in areas including aviation, IT, pharmaceuticals, construction, and electronics by streamlining the laws and bureaucracy surrounding businesses in India.
