Manufacturing of White Goods
AMTRON through its 100% subsidiary, AMTRON Informatics (India) Ltd., incorporated in March, 2002, started manufacturing activities in August 2002, undertaking assembly of white goods, electronics, and IT products. The material was supplied to AIIL by established industry players (OEMs) like Onida, Fedders Lloyd, Sansui, Akai etc.
AIIL used to get a conversion charge from the OEMs, who would then buyback the products from AIIL, for onward sale to consumers mainly in the North-Eastern region. A revenue of about Rs. 120 lacs was clocked in about 3 years.
However, the exemption granted to AIIL on sale of finished products was withdrawn in 2005, due to which OEMs ended their arrangement with AIIL.
