Foxconn India evaluates setting up shop in Nokia SEZ to boost production

November 07, 2017

Foxconn India is evaluating areas within the Nokia special economic zone (SEZ) in Sriperumbudur to establish a manufacturing facility. It aims to double production capacity to at least 30 million by the year end.

The manufacturer is exploring the area to set up plants for its key clients like Nokia and Xiaomi, which are growing rapidly and will require more production capacity in the coming quarters. Both companies want their phones to be manufactured locally. The company also manufactures televisions in India for other brands at four plants in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh, and one near Chennai. The company also makes phones for Oppo, Gionee and its own brand Infocus.

Foxconn, however, is not keen on re-opening its now-closed plant and neither the old Nokia factory.
