Most of us are already aware that after Foxconn, Pegatron is the second-largest manufacturer of Apple. Last year, the company registered its India subsidiary and invested around $150 million (approximately 1100 Crore) for its new operation base setup from India.
However, the company was previously was under probation for violating Apple’s supplier code in its china factory. However, the news is still not official whether the Indian subsidiary of Pegatron will start production from this year.
On the other hand, Foxconn has already started its Apple iPhone 12 assemble in India. Wistron, which is considered as Cupertino giant’s third-biggest supplier of Apple, was also put on the probation last year 2020 for workers’ non-payment in Narasapura, Karnataka facility.
According to sources, Pegatron might start production for other clients if they remain on probation till next year.
Foxconn, Wistron, and Pegatron, these three suppliers of Apple, have been approved under the Centre’s production-based scheme, which intends that investment and incremental production must be fulfilled to provide direct monetary incentives next five years. But as of now, because of Wistron and Pegatron’s probation, whether they will continue the production of Apple remains to be noticed.
