Home-grown mobile handset maker Ziox Mobiles
has planned to set up a greenfield
manufacturing unit in Noida
with an investment of Rs 100 crore.
“The proposed Noida plant
would have a capacity to manufacture a million handsets every month over its six assembly lines,” Ziox Mobiles
national sales head Chiranjib Sarkar, National Sales Head-Ziox Mobiles
told Business Standard here on Thursday.
“We are currently scouting for suitable land for the project and negations are on with landowners and even the state government authorities,” he informed, adding the proposal would take a concrete shape before January 2018.
Ziox already has an existing plant
in Delhi, which has the capacity to produce half million handsets per month. The Delhi plant
has four operational assembly lines.
“The existing plant
is already running on full capacity and with the kind of growth we are clocking, very soon we would be needing another plant
to cater the rising demand for our products,” he added. The company hawks its products both through the conventional retail and e-commerce.
Ziox primarily assembles feature and smartphone handsets in Delhi plant.
The Noida plant
would also be an assembly unit. “We are also keen on setting up a full-fledged mobile handset plant
if the central government provides matching incentives under the Make in India scheme,” Sarkar underscored.
