Tech giant Lenovo announced that it is expanding its local manufacturing portfolio in India, with a range of initiatives that will help meet increasing customer demand. Lenovo’s in-house personal computer (PC) manufacturing plant in Puducherry has been expanded to include a third manufacturing line.

Meanwhile, the company has also partnered with Wingtech Technology to locally manufacture its tablet computers at a plant in Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. In addition, smartphones for Motorola, which is part of Lenovo group, are now locally manufactured in partnership with Dixon Technologies at Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

The group is expanding in India across all business lines, including PC and smart devices, smartphones, infrastructure solutions, and especially in the newly established services & solutions group.

In Tirupati, Lenovo recently began manufacturing tablet computers with a small number of models and the company said has expanded quickly in the first few months and now produces a broad range of its tablets.

The Lenovo Puducherry plant, which has been operational since 1999, had previously been expanded to include Lenovo’s IdeaPad notebook computers from its consumer portfolio. Now, with the addition of a third production line, the facility has begun manufacturing products across Lenovo’s full consumer and commercial range, including desktops, notebooks, and workstations. This represents a 100 per cent capacity increase over the previous year, said the company.

It further added that it has invested significantly in automating and digitizing the facility. There is also a common testing area for all products and common packaging lines. With this expansion, every product will now have its own configuration and test methodology.

“These initiatives strengthen Lenovo’s commitment to the Government’s vision of ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’,” the company said.

To support these local manufacturing initiatives, Lenovo has also invested in employment and skill-building.

“With the various initiatives launched by the government to promote ‘Make in India’, the industry is more encouraged to support the needs of local customers through local manufacturing. In line with our sincere commitment to manufacturing locally, the expansion of our manufacturing capabilities in India will help us offer innovative devices of highest quality, produced here and rapidly brought to market. With our operations, we aim to generate employment and skill-building opportunities, and to bring our advanced, sustainable manufacturing technologies to India,” – said Shailendra Katyal, Managing Director, Lenovo India.

According to IDC, the total PC market size in India is expected to rise to more than 15 million units by 2022, compared to 10 million units in 2020. Total revenue for all Lenovo Group businesses in India was approximately USD 462 million for the quarter ended June representing year-on-year growth of 31.3 per cent.
