OPPO India has announced the completion of its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Greater Noida (Uttar Pradesh). As per the company, the first phase of this factory is currently up and running now and currently producing 4 million smartphones.
Playing big on the fastly growing Indian smartphone market and following its commitment to ‘Make in India’ initiative, OPPO has plans to massively scale-up production and to produce nearly 100 million devices by 2020.
Also, OPPO has confidence on its manufacturing capabilities in India and so it also has plans to export to other markets including South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa from this Greater Noida facility when it becomes fully operational by 2020.
Currently, this 110-acre industrial park campus has over 10,000 workforces engaged across manufacturing line, quality assurance, and product testing to ensure the quality of the devices as well make them faster. The workforce capacity is expected to cross 15,000 by 2020.
“Our Greater Noida factory is a symbol of Oppo’s strong commitment to India and a shining example of the success of the government’s ‘Make in India’ program. Currently, we are producing four million smartphones a month and by the end of 2020, we will double our existing capacity,” Sumit Walia, VP, Product, and Marketing, said in a statement.
He added further, “With the increased production and future export plans, we aim to achieve our dream of making India a global export hub for smartphone phones.”
Moreover, OPPO is also planning to invest more in its Hyderabad R&D center. Notably, this is the largest R&D center of the company outside of its homeland China. The Hyderabad facility has been playing a crucial role in the development of OPPO Reno series.
The company has recently launched Reno2 flagship series in India and this R&D is main contributor to these upcoming OPPO smartphones in India.
