Akai, which is back in India, is planning to start a manufacturing facility in the country in the next few years.
After re-entering into India in 2016, the company soft-launched its products (LED TVs, air-conditioners, washing machines and air-purifiers) and is focusing on ramping up its product portfolio and distribution in the country.
Anurag Sharma, director, Akai India, said, “We want to ensure we have a presence across segments and offer the complete portfolio of consumer electronics products. This is crucial to make a mark in the Indian consumer durables market.”
He said further: “We will be ramping up our AC portfolio by bringing in inverter ACs soon. Besides, we hope to foray in the refrigerator segment by early next year.”
Sharma’s firm Hometech Digital Pvt Ltd, a Paras Group company, has launched brand Akai in India under a licensing deal with the Japanese company.
