Samsung today announced that it will invest INR 1,588 crore in Sriperumbudur, near Chennai, to build a new compressor manufacturing plant. Sriperumbudur is one of two Samsung factories in India, having been established in 2007. The company and the government of Tamil Nadu today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the new plant, which would develop and improve the state’s component ecosystem.

The new factory, which measures 22 acres, will have a production capacity of 8 million compressor units per year, with the capacity to grow in the future. This will create 600 new jobs. The plant’s compressors will be used in Samsung’s Indian refrigerators and exported as well.
