Sanmina’s New DTA Status Supports Make in India initiative


Reading time ( words)

Sanmina Corporation has been granted Domestic Tariff Area (DTA) status at its manufacturing facility in the Hi-Tech SEZ (Special Economic Zone) in Oragadam, Chennai, India. This enables Sanmina to support the Make in India initiative, an effort driven by the Government of India to encourage the manufacturing of more products in India. By having both SEZ and DTA status, Sanmina can manufacture and deliver products for both domestic and export markets, with zero customs duty.

Sanmina’s manufacturing facility in Chennai holds key certifications for automotive, medical, aerospace, telecommunications and industrial manufacturing.  These certifications include TL 9000, EN/AS 9100, ISO 13485 and IATF 16949. In April 2018, Sanmina became the first tier 1 EMS (Electronic Manufacturing Services) company to achieve FDA registration in India. Sanmina also operates a product design center in Chennai with an ISO 13485 medical design registration, enabling Sanmina to design medical instruments for its customers, close to its manufacturing facility.

“DTA status makes our world-class manufacturing and technology solutions more attractive to both domestic and global customers with a presence in India,” said Elan Chelian, managing director and VP of Sanmina’s Chennai facility.

“India has been a strategic location for Sanmina for ten years,” said Mike Landy, EVP and COO of Integrated Manufacturing Solutions, Asia and Europe at Sanmina. “DTA status better positions Sanmina to support the “Make in India” initiative, and enables us to offer Sanmina’s end to end solutions to a wider range of customers.”

Founded in 2008, the 100-acre campus in Chennai, India is one of the highest technology manufacturing facilities in the region, producing the most advanced medical, communications, industrial, automotive and computing products in the world. Sanmina also operates its India Design Center (IDC) in Chennai.

Companies have been collecting data in large volumes. Highly varied data from manufacturing operations comes in quickly that needs to be validated, and its value prioritized so that it can be turned into something useful—transformed from big data to smart data. The amount of data available has grown exponentially into big data. Twenty years ago, a PCB work order resulted in 100 data records, megabytes of data; today, it is 10 billion records, terabytes of data. The investment in collecting this data and storing it is high. However, without a way to analyze the data, without analytics, it will not result in ROI.

Whenever we discuss data, keep in mind that people have been collecting data, verifying it, and translating it into reports for a long time. And if data is collected and processes are changed automatically, people still will be interpreting and verifying the accuracy of the data, creating reports, making recommendations, solving problems, tweaking, improving, and innovating. Whatever data collection system is used, any effort to digitalize needs to engage and empower the production team at the factory. Their role is to attend to the manufacturing process but also to act as the front line of communications and control.
