'Murugappa Group's CG Semi to start production in 2.5 to 3 years'

Chennai, March 13 (IANS) Industrial conglomerate Murugappa Group’s semiconductor company CG Semi Pvt Ltd will start manufacturing in 2.5 to 3 years at its factory in Gujarat, a top official of its parent company said on Wednesday.

“We are very keen to establish India’s semiconductor ecosystem and plan to build a world-class OSAT (outsourced semiconductor assembly and testing) facility at Sanand. We intend to commence production in the next 2.5 to 3 years,” S. Vellayan, Chairman of CG Power and Industrial Solutions Ltd, the parent of CG Semi, said in a statement.

“For India to become a truly global player in the semiconductor space, it is critical that we build a semiconductor cluster in a concentrated location similar to global leaders such as Taiwan. With a few facilities already announced in Gujarat, there are early signs of the state emerging as this cluster,” he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday virtually laid the foundation stone for the CG Semi’s factory at Sanand. This facility will be set up in a land area of 28 acres with an investment of Rs 7,600 crore, spread over a period of five years.
