Wistron, the Taiwanese company located in Kolar, is set to resume production in the next few days, Large and Medium Industries Minister Jagadish Shettar said here on Thursday. The company had been rocked by employee violence in December last year.
A team led by Sudipto Gupta, Managing Director of Wistron, met the Large & Medium Industries Minister at the Vidhana Soudha and thanked the state government and the Industries Department for their help in the aftermath of the incident.
The re-appointment process has begun and production will resume soon, Mr Gupta said. The company manufactures I-phones for Apple, among other products.
Expressing regret over the violence at the company premises, Shettar said, “Karnataka, which is an industry-friendly state, has been working hard to create a supportive environment for industries. It is a matter of happiness that the re-appointment process has started and production is ready to resume. All support will be given by the state government and the Industries Department.”
The meeting was attended by Gaurav Gupta, ACS to the government, Industries Commissioner Gunjan Krishna and officials of Wistron.
