by May 13, 2015 0 comments

After nearly seven years in operation, Nokia Networks’ Chennai factory has marked major milestone as the facility has manufactured over two million components for telecommunications networks, of which about a quarter have been used for 4G technology.

With a workforce of 1,200 employees, Nokia Networks’ Chennai factory is the largest manufacturing facility in the Indian telecommunications equipment manufacturing sector, and a strategic hub for Nokia’s global operations.

The company has invested approximately INR 500 crore since 2008 in the 140,000 square-meter facility, which produces and distributes mobile broadband products for advanced technologies such as LTE in domestic and global markets. The manufactured items include state-of-the-art Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Stations, system modules and filters, as well as core and transport network elements.

The two million unit milestone is reached in the same year that Nokia celebrates its 150th anniversary

“We are proud to have reached the two million milestone in our Chennai factory. It is a great testimony to India’s potential in electronic manufacturing, and the company is a key pioneer supporting the government’s ‘Make in India’ vision,” said Sandeep Girotra, Vice President and Head of India Market at Nokia Networks.

Girotra also added that Nokia will provide operators with mobile broadband equipment and supporting India’s transformation into a manufacturing destination.
