A veteran of 28 years in the electronic manufacturing industry (EMS), Sunil Vachani is the CMD of Dixon Technologies (India) Ltd., a company with an estimated market capitalization of over INR 17,000 crores.
A second-gen entrepreneur, Sunil saw his father successfully build and manage Weston — India’s first colour TV company. He established Dixon in 1993 with just one factory and serviced only one customer — Goldstar, now called LG Electronics — and started exporting to Europe. Sunil helped the company grow from a one product offering to becoming a market leader in design focused product solutions across multiple segments and geographies. Sunil saw the opportunity in capturing cost-effective market segments for consumer products. With Vachani at the helm, Dixon Technologies has been recognized as the Best Indian EMS by multiple Indian trade journals and industry bodies.
Sunil is a firm believer in the concept of make in India, consume in India. Sunil’s leadership and vision have enabled him to create a team of motivated and competent experts. The company makes products such as smartphones, washing machines and TVs, for a range of clients including Samsung, Panasonic and Xiaomi. The company listed in 2017 and its shares have been rising ever since.
