R&R Industries CEO Moosa announced the company’s plans to set up a manufacturing plant for the Samsung TV lineup in Pakistan.

An official announcement by the company said that R&R Industries has signed an agreement with Samsung and intends to set up the plant in Karachi’s Korangi Industrial Area.

R&R Industries has already started the construction and fabrication of the factory plant — which is expected to be inaugurated in the fourth quarter of 2021 — and added a major global brand into the portfolio of local manufacturing in Pakistan.

The local partner company believed that the project will create more than 700 jobs in Pakistan. It is expected that the business revenue of the project will be approximately touch five billion rupees per annum and an annual target of producing 50,000 TV units.
