In addition to Flex Chennai Industrial Park 3, Flex has ten other facilities in India, which all together provide the company with more than 1 million square feet of manufacturing space, after-market services and global business services. “Flex has been in India over the last 18 years and has the right building blocks to help our customers who wish to innovate, create, and gain access to markets both domestically and globally,” adds Hopkins.
