This manufacturing facility will be one of the first cooling appliances unit in Andhra Pradesh. The choice of Andhra Pradesh as the destination for the new manufacturing unit was due to the states ease of doing business and growing focus on Make in India.

The location provides dual benefits of superior market access and cost-effective connectivity via road and port. Voltas will cater to the south, west and east markets through this manufacturing facility.

Pradeep Bakshi, Managing Director and CEO, said: "We have always kept the customer at the core of all our decision making. This facility helps us in expanding our manufacturing capabilities while increasing our reach in the southern market."
