Now, the American Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) provider has both SEZ and DTA status, which enable it to manufacture and deliver products for domestic as well as overseas markets, with nil customs duty. This will also enable the company to support the Indian government’s ambitious ‘Make in India’ scheme, meant to encourage manufacturing of products in the country.

Commenting on the development, Elan Chelian, Managing Director and VP of Sanmina’s Chennai facility, said, “DTA status makes our world-class manufacturing and technology solutions more attractive to both domestic and global customers with a presence in India.”

Mike Landy, EVP and COO – Integrated Manufacturing Solutions, Asia and Europe, Sanmina, added, “India has been a strategic location for Sanmina for 10 years. DTA status better positions Sanmina to support the ‘Make in India’ initiative and enables us to offer Sanmina’s end-to-end solutions to a wider range of customers.”

Sanmina’s manufacturing facility in Chennai have major certifications for automotive, telecommunications, aerospace, medical and industrial manufacturing. The key certifications include EN/AS 9100, TL 9000, IATF 16949 and ISO 13485.

In April this year, Sanmina became the first EMS company in Tier 1 to attain FDA registration in India. Close to its manufacturing unit, the company also manages a product design center in Chennai having an ISO 13485 registration, which enables it to design medical instruments for its clients.
