OPPO, a leading global smartphone brand, building upon their commitment to India, are setting up a Greenfield Electronic Manufacturing Cluster (EMC) in Greater Noida, to manufacture electronics and support accessories locally in the country as well as generate huge employment opportunities in the state.
The project is being set up by TEGNA Electronics Private Limited (TEGNA), an SPV of Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (TEEMA), along with OPPO and a few Indian companies, under the support of the Department of IT & Electronics Govt. of Uttar Pradesh, and approved by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India under its Electronics Manufacturing Cluster Scheme.
The EMC will facilitate a common platform for existing electronic manufacturers and exporters to come together and establish an integrated hub for manufacturing electronics and hardware – primarily focused towards smartphones.
The EMC will not only bring together strength in volumes of production and offer an attractive scale of operation to buyers, but also incorporate state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities for the stakeholders. The Cluster houses facilities like tool room, R&D lab etc. for manufacturing electronic products along with other manufacturing and support services. It will house some of the global leaders in manufacturing of electronics and support accessories. The EMC will also generate huge employment opportunities in the state, generating direct employment for around 25,000 – 30,000 persons.
