Voltamp Transformers Ltd. Company History and Annual Growth Details

Our Company was originally started as a Partnership firm in the year
1963 by the name of M/s Voltamp Corporation. The firm was jointly
formed by our Promoter, Mr. Lalitkumar H. Patel along with his
relatives (late) Mr. Babubhai H. Patel and Mr. Navinchandra R. Patel
to manufacture transformers. At that stage the key technical expertise
was provided by Mr. Lalitkumar H. Patel who was a U.K. educated
electrical engineer and had a basic training on design aspects of
transformers with a German Company, Siemens GmbH and their Indian
Licensee, Bharat Bijalee Limited. The initial activities of the Partnership
firm were manufacturing and marketing of distribution transformers and
also their repairs.

Further in 1967, our Company was incorporated under the Companies
Act, 1956 pursuant to a Certificate of Incorporation No. 1437 of 1967
dated March 2, 1967 issued by the Registrar of Companies, Gujarat.
The Company was jointly promoted by the families of Mr. Lalitkumar H.
Patel, Mr. Babubhai H. Patel and Mr. Navinchandra R. Patel to take
over business of M/s. Voltamp Corporation as a going concern. Our
Company continued the business of manufacturing transformers and
simultaneously increased the capacity of transformers manufactured
upto 10,000 KVA, 66KV for utilities and industrial clients.

In 1989, our Company became a deemed public company as our
turnover in FY 1989 crossed the limit then laid down for private companies
as per Section 43A of the Companies Act, 1956.

In November 1998, Our Company entered into a technical agreement with
Mora Tranformatoren GmbH, Germany for manufacture of Vacuum Resin
Impregnated Dry Type Transformers. With this we forayed our entry into

In December 2001, our Company entered into a technical license agreement
with German Company M/s. Hochspannungstechnik und Transformatorbau
GmbH having experience of 40 years for manufacture of Cast Resin Dry Type

In 2001 the concept of “deemed public company” was deleted under the
Companies Act, 1956, and therefore we converted back to private company
under section 43A(2A) of the Companies Act, 1956.
