Samsung Electro-Mechanics announced on November 20 that it is discussing with a local government office for procedures to establish its subsidiary in India next January. As the company’s local office has been increased in size since the opening in 2001, it needs to set up a subsidiary there.
Samsung Electro-Mechanics India will be established in Bengaluru, which is referred to as the "Silicon Valley of India," and its recruitment process is under way. The local office currently has about 70 employees. Samsung Electro-Mechanics’ R&D office in India is in charge of developing products and software that are needed to operate plants.
An official from Samsung Electro-Mechanics said, “In India, it is relatively easy to hire talented researchers. Since we believe that it is important to improve not only the manufacturing competitiveness but also software competitiveness in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we have run the R&D office in India.”
Samsung Electro-Mechanics is planning to focus on securing the competitiveness in high-end components at the new R&D center that is to be expanded from the local office to the subsidiary. The era of artificial intelligence, smart home and autonomous vehicle has begun in earnest, differentiated parts, such as camera, multi-layer ceramic capacitor and substrate, are required in almost every field. Samsung Electro-Mechanics will help its researchers at home and in India bring out the best in each of them and focus on software development.
