Taken up in collaboration with Electronic Industries Association of India (ELCINA), the 50-acre industrial park, located alongside National Highway – 7 (Hyderabad – Bengaluru stretch) at Chilamathur village near Hindupur, has already attracted three units that will bring in investments to the tune of Rs 100 cr. “Mysore-based Vinyas IT has come forward to set up two units. One of it will be by DCX, its joint venture with the US-based company. They make hind-end wires for defence and aerospace sector. We are in the process of finalising agreements with other companies,” K J Reddy, Chairman and Managing Director, KJR Group, told The Hans India. Vinyas Innovation Technologies, a significant player in electronic manufacturing services (EMS), supplies electronic components to three Israel-based defence companies which provide equipment to Indian defence forces. “Presence of Vinyas IT and similar players is sure to turn Ananthapur district into hub for electronic products for defence and aerospace as they can attract several ancillary units,” Reddy explained. According to him, the eight units will bring in a total investment of Rs 300 to Rs 350 crore and some of them will manufacture products such as LED lights. KJR Group is spending close to Rs 50 crore on developing infrastructure at the electronics park, among the first ones in the private sector in the country, which can eventually accommodate 25 to 30 units with cumulative investments running into around Rs 1,000 crore. “We expect entire space in our electronics park to get filled in next three years as many companies are showing interest in setting up units here,” he said. The park has already received in-principle approval from Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY), a part of Union Ministry of Telecommunications & IT. It enjoys well-connected location advantage as it’s just 65 km away from the Bengaluru International Airport. “With companies like Vinyas IT, a leading supplier to Israel companies, coming to the park, we are planning to visit Israel soon to attract investments from that country,” said K Bhaskar Reddy of KJR Group. According to him, efforts are underway to set up an incubation centre at the park to attract young entrepreneurs. “We are approaching the Andhra Pradesh government with the proposal to set up the centre here. We will offer land for the facility,” he said. The incubation centre requires Rs 5 crore investment.
