Industry eco system in Tamil Nadu helps nurture businesses – Sanmina SCI

We chose Tamil Nadu for Very good connectivity by Sea, Air and Road, Availability of qualified human resource, Very good ecosystem, Supply chain, Availability of power.

When our management proposed India for a manufacturing (plant), we formed a high level committee. The committee visited various places in India like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. Finally we chose Tamil Nadu for Very good connectivity by Sea, Air and Road, Availability of qualified human resource, Very good ecosystem, Supply chain, Availability of power. There was a lot of pro-activeness from the Government of Tamil Nadu. The policies were transparent, simple and easy to fathom. The approvals were given in quick time and we were made to feel wanted.

I would like to thank Government of Tamil Nadu, SIPCOT and Guidance Bureau for their timely support.


Sanmina started its manufacturing stint in India in 2008 with a small 17000 sq ft facility with just two customers and today it is spread over a sprawling 100 acre campus, housing its state of the art 100-acre manufacturing facility in Oragadam, Sriperumbudur and a high tech design facility in MEPZ, Tambaram to all the segments. Sanmina India operations cater to over 20 major customers.

With the current initiative of Make in India and the support provided by the State Government of Tamil Nadu, corporations like Sanmina are striving to make India a manufacturing hub and the number one choice for reputed electronic companies for their products.

Tamil Nadu is a vast reservoir of talent adaptable to hi-tech manufacturing, and a good line up of technical schools here major contributes to it. The company was able to transfer knowledge from various parts of Sanmina global facilities with ease.

Tamil Nadu has also provided an excellent eco-system to nurture efforts towards local supply chain development. This has been possible due to all round development of various industries in the region thereby bringing in key component and raw material suppliers to the vicinity.

The responsiveness and approachability of the Tamil Nadu Government greatly facilitated the company’s strategic business plans. The SIPCOT & Single Window processes, industry friendly professional approach and upkeep of promises have been key factors responsible for this success story.
