HP begins producing laptops and desktop computers in India.
HP announced on Wednesday that it has begun manufacture of a variety of PC products, including laptops, in India.
According to a statement, HP has begun producing numerous kinds of laptops, desktop towers, and tiny desktops at the Flex plant in Sriperumbudur near Chennai, Tamil Nadu, as part of the Government of India's 'Make in India' initiative.
Some of these products qualify for government public procurement orders and will be offered on the Government e-Marketplace (GeM) platform to meet the demands of government agencies and other consumers, according to the statement.
"HP has worked closely with India since the company's inception in the nation. We have collaborated with the Government of India and state governments in their objective to empower the lives of millions of residents and improve the quality of life in communities as India has achieved tremendous progress and emphasis on digital transformation." HP India's managing director, Ketan Patel
"By extending the scope and reach of our manufacturing operations, we aspire to play a major role in realising the promise of 'Atmanirbar Bharat," he said.
According to the statement, this is the first time HP has produced such a diverse selection of laptops in India, including HP EliteBooks, HP ProBooks, and HP G8 series notebooks.
HP has also increased its locally manufactured business desktops by introducing new types of desktop mini towers (MT), mini desktops (DM), small form factor (SFF) desktops, and all-in-one PCs.
These products are available with both Intel and AMD processors. HP now manufactures display monitors in India as well.
HP had teamed with Flex to manufacture commercial desktop computers beginning in August 2020.
HP has greatly expanded its manufacturing facilities since then in order to reaffirm its commitment to the Make in India initiative.
