Chennai, NFAPost: HP has begun PC manufacturing operations at Flex’s facility, located in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai. This expansion is a part of HP’s long-term commitment to the Indian market and its efforts to serve its partners and customers better.
The plant will manufacture desktops and workstations that enable HP to meet current and future customer needs, while driving greater operational efficiency. Its geographical location provides it access to a nearby port and HP’s spare parts facility in Bengaluru.
This, in turn, enables the company to procure materials from other parts of India and from Asia more quickly and efficiently, said the company.
“HP, a long-standing partner in the India’s digital transformation journey, is committed to providing technology that can enable people and businesses of India to achieve their true potential,” said HP India Market Managing Director Ketan Patel.
“With the inauguration of this new facility, we aim to strengthen our commitment to India and support the growth of the local manufacturing ecosystem,” he added.
“We are delighted to partner with HP to manufacture desktops and workstations in India and are committed to helping HP meet the current and future needs of its customers. We look forward to bringing our advanced manufacturing capabilities along with our supply chain expertise to this engagement,” said Flex Senior Vice President, India Operations, Richard Hopkins.
Both HP and Flex are focused on managing COVID-19 with urgency and a deep sense of care. Employees’ safety is paramount and the facility adheres strictly to guidance from government and public health authorities to mitigate risk. These include maintaining physical distancing as well as hygiene protocols like regular sanitisation, HP said.
