As per the minister’s sharing of a statement from the Taiwan-based supplier, the Wistron board approved the sale of Wistron InfoComm Manufacturing India Private Limited to Tata Electronics Private Limited for an approximate sum of $125 million.

The manufacturing alliance with Tata Group will assist Apple in its recent efforts to relocate its production environment outside of China. It will also result in a more extensive move of Apple’s production facilities to India. Industry estimates place Wistron’s iPhone exports from India between April and June at close to $500 million.
