Vivo is set to open a new manufacturing plant in Greater Noida, India, as reported by the Economic Times. This facility, touted as one of the nation’s largest for mobile phone production, will boast an annual capacity of 120 million devices.

Vivo’s Massive Scale and Strategic Location

Spanning 170 acres, Vivo’s upcoming facility represents an investment exceeding Rs. 3,000 crore and is scheduled for inauguration this July. It’s being likened to Samsung’s current largest mobile manufacturing plant in the country, operational since 2018 with a matching capacity of 120 million units annually.

Earlier this month, Vivo relocated from its previous manufacturing unit, capable of producing 40 million devices per year. This site has since been taken over by Micromax Informatics’ unit, Bhagwati Enterprises, on a lease from Vivo.

Local Partnerships

Vivo is actively seeking an Indian partner to bolster its operations. Talks have been held with several potential collaborators, including Tata Group, Murugappa Group, and Dixon Technologies, a leading Indian contract manufacturer, to establish a joint venture (JV) for managing its manufacturing endeavours.
