PALO ALTO, CA (IANS) – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), has announced its plans to manufacture high-volume servers worth $1 billion in India. The decision comes as part of HPE’s strategy to strengthen and diversify its global supply chain while meeting the growing demand from customers in India.
HPE has partnered with domestic manufacturer VVDN Technologies to establish its manufacturing operation at the VVDN plant in Haryana.
HPE already has a significant presence in India, with its largest workforce outside the US based there. The company’s campus in Mahadevapura, Bengaluru, serves as a hub for product development resources, housing over 4,000 scientists, engineers, and research teams.
Antonio Neri, President and CEO of HPE, acknowledged India’s strategic importance for the company’s business, talent, innovation, and now manufacturing. Neri emphasized the pivotal role played by HPE’s 14,000 team members in India in driving their edge-to-cloud strategy.
This manufacturing initiative builds upon HPE’s previous investment of $500 million over five years in India to expand operations and team member base. Since that announcement, HPE has generated 2,000 net new jobs in the country and established multiple new campuses and offices. With local manufacturing capabilities, HPE aims to cater to the diverse needs of its customers across industries and segments.
