In a grand opening ceremony Sanmina-SCI Corporation has formally inaugurated its state-of-the-art technology manufacturing campus in the Oragadam Hi-Tech Special Economic Zone (SEZ) near Chennai in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The ceremony was attended by the company's co-founder, chairman and CEO Jure Sola, president and COO Hari Pillai, executive VP, south Asia Pacific, CT Chua and VP and managing director for India, Kumaran Subramaniam. The management team was joined by Tamil Nadu deputy chief minister, M K Stalin, Tamil Nadu minister for labour T.M.

Sanmina-SCI's investments and footprint in Tamil Nadu began in 2003, with the formation of the Chennai IT Centre to support Sanmina-SCI's global IT systems. Manufacturing operations started with the signing of an MOU with the government of Tamil Nadu for the acquisition of the Oragadam Campus in June 2007, in conjunction with the start up of operations at an interim location at the nearby MEPZ Special Economic Zone (SEZ). Today, Sanmina-SCI has moved all manufacturing operations to its new 100 acre Oragadam campus. With over 1,500 highly skilled and dedicated employees in India, Sanmina-SCI offers leading OEM customers a comprehensive array of services ranging from design and engineering, supply chain management, PCB assembly and full system assembly. Markets served include communications, enterprise computing and storage, defence and aerospace, medical, renewable energy and multi-media markets. The operations are ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485, ISO 14001:2004, TL 9000, UL and CCC certified to provide the highest manufacturing standards to its customers.

"With our new state-of-the-art campus and well diversified customer base, Sanmina-SCI is positioned to fully capitalise on the rapidly expanding market opportunities in India. The formal opening of this facility is a great milestone in our continuing commitment to provide leading-edge technology services and cost competitive solutions to the important Indian market and to the entire sub-continent," stated Sola.

"I am delighted to be here with our India management team and employees, as well as our valued customers, suppliers and honoured guests from government to celebrate this joyous occasion. We are very proud of the accomplishments that have been made by the team in a few short years and look forward with optimism and confidence towards the future," added Pillai.
