Top-of-the-line iPhones manufacturing ndia they get stronger and stronger: last week we commented that Foxconn, a major supplier to Apple, is planning to expand its operations in Indian territory; now, another partner of Ma in the manufacture of iPhones, the Pegatron, is also interested in settling in the Asian country, as informed by the Financial Times.
In addition to India, the Taiwanese supplier also plans to expand to the Indonesia it's the Vietn; according to the report, such investment in other countries aims to reduce dependence on the Chinese market, where a large part of these suppliers operate Pegatron, responsible today for about 30% of the manufacture of Apple devices, an amount almost entirely produced in China.
Despite the relationship with Apple, Pegatron did not mention it in its announcement; however, at the very least reason that this is one of the attributions for the expansion when we connect the company's plans with those of Foxconn and Ma itself. In that sense, the supplier's president, SJ Liao, said that more details will be announced soon. expansion depends, however, on the trade war between the United States and China, he said.
Currently, only Wistron is in charge of producing iPhones in India, where it assembles the 6s, 6s Plus and SE models. As for Foxconn, the company already has factories in India and Vietnam, but still does not manufacture any gadget Apple in these countries. O FT it also disclosed that Foxconn's regulatory documents detailed investments of US $ 213 million in an Indian subsidiary of the company, in addition to a land acquisition in Vietnam (that is, plans for expansion are already underway).
