Xiaomi has announced local manufacturing of Mi LED TVs in India. Taking another step towards Make in India, the Chinese manufacturer has partnered with Dixon Technologies to locally manufacture its range of Mi LED TVs in India.

Electronics  contract manufacturer Dixon Technologies  is helping put the temple town of Tirupati , Andhra Pradesh, on the map of hardware manufacturing in India.  The company has 8 units spread across 3 states and is the largest manufacturer of TVs in India. At its newest plant in  Tirupati,  it   manufactures  TVs,  CCTV cameras and Digital Video Recorders in a 32-acre campus employing 850 people  and located just 2 kms from the  International airport.

It has just added Xiaomi as a client for the manufacture of 32-inch and  43-inch Mi-LED smart TVs at Tirupati and is all set to ramp up to full capacity of 100,00 Mi TVs a month by January 2019. For starters,  the plant will assemble Mi LED Smart TVs  4A 80 cm (32”) and   4A 180 cm (43”)  sets.  This comes at a time when  Mi LED TV has become the number 1 Smart TV Brand in India  according to IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Smart Home Device Tracker,  for the 2nd quarter of 2018.
