In the early 90s, Samsung was one of India's first electronics manufacturers. In 1997, the factory began to produce TV sets. The mobile phone production line was built in 2005.
Last June, Samsung announced that it would expand its investment in the factory. A year later, the factory was ready to double its output. Samsung currently produces 67 million smartphones in India. After the new plant is put into operation, its output is expected to reach nearly 120 million.
The expansion of the factory will also expand the capacity of Samsung's other electronic products, including fridges and flat panel TV, to continue to consolidate Samsung's leading position in these fields.
Tarun Pathak, assistant director of Counterpoint Research, said the launch of the new plant would help Samsung shorten the time it takes to market its products.
In India, Samsung has two manufacturing plants, 5 R & D centers, and 1 design centers, employing more than 70 thousand employees. (Li Li)
