Year 1957, when formal international joint ventures were unheard of, The Khatau and Thakersey groups, already renowned names in Indian industry, joined hands with German promoters Siemens and F & G and set up a power cable factory. The new venture commenced operations in Mumbai and began with the manufacture of PVC insulated wire and cables for the first time in India. Three and a half decades later, a second plant was set up at Nashik in Maharashtra. Today, Cable Corporation of India (CCI) is a leading manufacturer of a wide range of power and control cables.
CCI is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware, software and infrastructure to retain its leadership position in the industry. Besides being a household name in the manufacture of high quality cables, the management has played a key role in influencing major decisions and embarking on innovative solutions. Its strong vision, emphasis on team work and customer satisfaction, has earned it repute in international industry circles. Over the years, CCI was represented in CIGRE, Paris and other forums like BIS, IEEMA etc. Its Tropothen-S® XLPE cables have received IEC-840 Certification from KEMA, Netherlands; its testing laboratories have been approved by the South African Standards Institution for electrical items exported to that country; the company is ISO-9001 certified and has exported its products to markets in South Africa, Bangladesh, Mauritius & Middle East.
