The facility sits on an area of 11,000 square meters, with an investment of around USD 20 million, which is expected to increase to USD 30 million within a year. This initiative will create 1,500 new jobs within a year and will employ the most advanced international technology in manufacturing lines, surface installation devices, assembly, calibration, and testing.
