Samsung has set up the world’s largest mobile manufacturing unit in Noida, Uttar Pradesh in India. This factory will enable Samsung to double its current mobile phone capacity from 68 million units a year to 120 million units a year. This expansion will be in phases and will be completed by 2020.
The Noida factory, which was set up in 1996 is one of the first global electronics manufacturing facilities set up in India. A bigger manufacturing plant spread over 129,000 sq. metres will help Samsung meet the growing demand for its products and services across the country and also fulfill the Company’s goal of making India an export hub for the world. Samsung has been manufacturing mobile phones in India since 2007.
The mobile factory was inaugurated by the Honourable Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi. On this occasion, Samsung India also launched its ‘Make for the World’ initiative, whereby it aims to export mobile handsets produced in India, to overseas markets.
