Sanmina-SCI Takes Major Steps to Meet the Critical Needs of India's Burgeoning Electronics Market

Dec 07, 2010

SAN JOSE, CA – Sanmina-SCI Corporation (Nasdaq: SANM), a leading global Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) company, today announced its India Design Center is providing significant advantages to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers in the multimedia, communications, renewable energies and medical markets.

A full-service engineering operation for hardware and embedded software outsourcing, the Design Center offers design and manufacturing services as one supplier, while delivering strategic benefits that include a more efficient product life cycle from concept through to production, wider global supply chain reach and considerable reduction in manufacturing costs.

The Sanmina-SCI India Design Center is located in the Madras Special Economic Zone (MEPZ) near Chennai. Currently, the Design Center is providing domain expertise in the design and manufacture of medical, networking and communications, optics, defense and aerospace, LED lighting and smart infrastructure technologies.

According to ELCINA Electronic Industries Association of India (, the market for electronic products in India is projected to reach $150 billion U.S. by the year 2015, at a growth rate of 30% per annum. These skyrocketing figures have necessitated that Indian companies who have traditionally done manufacturing in-house, as well as global OEMs who typically use manufacturing facilities in other countries, create strategic partnerships with a manufacturer in India who can meet and exceed expectations on a variety of deliverables.

"Sanmina-SCI's fully integrated India Design Center offers strategic benefits that are unparalleled for OEMs who need end-to-end design and manufacturing capabilities, DFx requirements in early design phases, the ability to meet rigid environmental guidelines and a highly developed global supply chain," said Naresh Nigam, Chief Technology Officer at Sanmina-SCI. “Our unique success in India has been a direct result of our ability to meet our customers needs in every one of these areas, while also providing substantial cost savings at every level of the manufacturing process.”

  • Value Add Value Engineering (VAVE) and sustaining engineering services

  • Collaborative development with other Sanmina-SCI and customers’ global locations

  • Frontend engineering services that include DFx, RoHS and component engineering

"The ability to offer end-to-end design and manufacture services, including complex and rigorous test engineering and development, is a key part of the Sanmina-SCI strategy in India," stated Srinivas Moorthy, Vice President of Engineering at the Sanmina-SCI India Design Center in Chennai. "Providing strong testing and test engineering resources in-house allows for a more efficient manufacturing process and faster time-to-market for our customers who need to manufacture in India, and it’s just one more example of how Sanmina-SCI provides the highest standards in design and manufacturing services.”
