Additionally, we will collaborate with local media outlets to generate awareness and coverage of the initiative in each city it travels to. Furthermore, we will organize interactive workshops, seminars, and demonstrations at each stop to engage directly with customers and provide them with hands-on experience of our cutting-edge Data Center Solutions.

Over the past 2-3 years, we've made significant investments in our data center business, aligning with our ongoing commitment to invest over $500 million in India across various sectors over the next five years. This includes setting up a new manufacturing unit in Krishnagiri (KG) to meet the growing demand for data center solutions.

However, our commitment goes beyond just manufacturing. Globally, Delta Electronics allocates approximately 8% of its total revenue to R&D.

By strategically investing in both manufacturing capabilities and R&D, we ensure we can deliver the best possible solutions to our Indian customers. These solutions cater to their specific needs while minimizing environmental impact, reflecting our commitment to sustainability.
