Kaynes Technology was honored with the India Today Make in India Emerging Entrepreneur Award 2017 in the category ‘Electronics’
“Make in India mission is the right impetus to the manufacturing segment which with the advent of IT had taken a back seat. Manufacturing is yet to come of age with world class infrastructure and responsible skill set to give quality and reliable products to the Global market. There is still far more to achieve especially in the area of Innovation and creating an eco-system to scale up electronics manufacturing. Skill enhancement and aligning with academia to foray in areas of future should be the main stay of every manufacturer. This award by India Today has surely recognized the work of companies like us, and will help us to do much better in the years to come,” said Ramesh Kannan, President and Managing Director, Kaynes Technology
