Compaq Smart TVs in India

The Compaq brand is best known for laptops, even if these are no longer manufactured. In India, the Compaq brand has been licensed for smart TVs by Noida-based electronics manufacturer Ossify Industries. The company has plans to eventually manufacture Compaq televisions in India, and recently acquired a manufacturing plant in Haryana for this.

According to an online listing, Ossify Industries is involved in the manufacture of electric motors, generators, and transformers. Earlier this year, it reportedly acquired a manufacturing facility in Kundli, Haryana for approximately Rs. 225 crore, which is supposed to begin production in 48 months to scale up the Compaq TV trade.

Ossify Industries further plans to launch more affordable televisions in India in the coming weeks, with sizes ranging from 32 inches to 55 inches. These are likely to be LED TVs, with the resolutions ranging from HD to Ultra-HD, and will take on increasingly more fierce competition in the segment from brands such as Xiaomi, Vu, OnePlus, and Hisense, among others.
