E-commerce giant Amazon has announced its plans to begin manufacturing devices in India.
This is the first Amazon manufacturing line in India and reiterates the firm’s commitment to the government’s “Make in India” for an Aatmanirbhar Bharat. Amazon will commence manufacturing with contract manufacturer Cloud Network Technology, a subsidiary of Foxconn, in Chennai, and start production later this year.
The programme will churn out hundreds of thousands of Fire TV Stick devices every year. Amazon will evaluate scaling capacity to additional marketplaces and cities, depending on the domestic demand.
