Wipro GE Healthcare plans $959m investment in India

Wipro GE Healthcare has announced an investment of more than Rs80bn ($959m) in India, aimed at expanding its capabilities in medical device technology manufacturing.

The investment, which is planned over the next five years, will see an increase in the company’s manufacturing output and local research and development (R&D).

The move is expected to strengthen Wipro GE Healthcare’s manufacturing capabilities to cater to the increasing demand from both domestic and international markets.

It also aims to fortify the company’s supply chain resilience.

As part of this initiative, Wipro GE Healthcare plans to produce positron emission tomography (PET) computed tomography (CT) Discovery IQ diagnostic scan devices for exportation to 15 countries.

This aligns with the company’s commitment to manufacturing ‘In India for the World’.
