“India is a strategic market for TCL,” Tomson Li, Chairman and CEO of TCL Corporation, said in a statement.

“The project will strengthen our supply chain integration capabilities in India and in turn will benefit our local consumers, providing them with superior quality products at greater value,” he added.

The investment in the panel module factory in India marks the first step in CSOT’s overseas deployment. Upon completion, the project will help realise CSOT’s capabilities in smart manufacturing and product delivery on a global scale, providing services for customers and partners worldwide, the company added.

In order to support the CSOT panel module factory, TCL said its industrial park will also include a smart TV manufacturing facility to efficiently integrate the panel module and TV set production. The smart TV manufacturing facility is designed to manufacture six million 32-inch to 65-inch TV sets per year.

“TCL’s smart integrated manufacturing project in Tirupati is of great significance to the industrial and economic development of Andhra Pradesh,” Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu said in a statement.
