The Coconics story is that of a unique partnership, innovative thinking and pulling off the near impossible.
India’s latest OEM/ODM company is a private- public technology partnership backed by the Government of Kerala and its business friendly industrial policy. The four constituents of this Joint Venture company – UST Global, Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation(KSIDC), Keltron and Acceleron got together with the guidance and support of Intel to manufacture IT products in India under the Make in India initiative.
Coconics’ state of the art manufacturing plant in Manvila on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram has a capacity to manufacture 2,50,000 laptops in 2019. With a phased localization plan already in place, Coconics will focus on leveraging the Indian ESDM ecosystem to localize critical BOM including the motherboard, battery, adaptors and packaging. This will be in addition to local assembly and testing for its product range.
The initial range of products from Coconics is aimed at Government, Enterprise and Education markets with features customized to the Indian users.
