Wistron says distressed by violence, but hopes to resume production at the earliest

NEW DELHI: Wistron is working with the Karnataka government to ensure resumption of production at its Narasapura plant and is committed to its manufacturing expansion plans in India, the company said.

“We bring the best of practices worldwide to our plant and operations and want to protect workers’ interests. We will work together with the State Government to ensure plant operations are resumed at the earliest,” Sudipto Gupta, Managing Director, Innovation Business Group, Wistron Smart Devices said in a letter to the Karnataka government dated December 14.

“We thank the State administration for their support in ensuring the safety of the project and our people and are optimistic about our future in the State. We are committed to make Electronic Manufacturing succeed in India, which is key to our global plans, and look to expand our presence in this very important market as we go forward,” Gupta said.

Wistron’s newest manufacturing facility in Karnataka’s Kolar district was vandalised by a mob on Saturday which caused a damage of over $ 7 million or Rs 51 crore.

“We are deeply distressed by the recent incidents that took place at our Narasapura Industrial Area, Kolar. In this difficult hour, we appreciate the support we have got from the Government of Karnataka,” Gupta said in his letter.

“We are working closely with State Government to ensure such incidents do not recur and support the police investigations.”
