Earlier this month, Vivo relocated from its previous manufacturing unit, capable of producing 40 million devices per year. This site has since been taken over by Micromax Informatics' unit, Bhagwati Enterprises, on a lease from Vivo.

Local Partnerships

Vivo is actively seeking an Indian partner to bolster its operations. Talks have been held with several potential collaborators, including Tata Group, Murugappa Group, and Dixon Technologies, a leading Indian contract manufacturer, to establish a joint venture (JV) for managing its manufacturing endeavours.

Meanwhile, Tata Group has expressed its focus on expanding manufacturing capabilities across the country through acquisitions and partnerships. A senior executive emphasised the group's strategic interest in manufacturing facilities, underscoring their intent to explore all avenues for scaling up operations, including potential future discussions with Vivo.
