Centum Electronics opens fourth manufacturing facility in Bengaluru

The electronics manufacturer Centum Electronics expanded operations with the launch of its fourth manufacturing facility in Bengaluru. The company has invested about Rs 200 crore, over two years, in the new facility, which was inaugurated by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar yesterday.

“The aerospace facility is the fourth manufacturing location we have built in India demonstrating our continued commitment to the government’s vision of ‘Make in India.’ Centum Electronics already has a significant presence in Bengaluru with three other facilities fully operational. The investment in the new manufacturing facility represents the potential available in the industry in India and abroad,” commented Apparao Mallavarapu, chairman and managing director, Centum Electronics.

Located at the aerospace park near Devanahalli, Centum’s new facility, Avanza, will integrate design, manufacturing, factory testing, quality control and advanced manufacturing engineering for Centum’s defence automation business in India and abroad. The project is a direct result of the opportunities created for Indian companies with a focus on self- reliance and indigenous design and manufacturing for the defence and aerospace industry.
