Our Company was incorporated on October 21, 1991
as Cords Cable Industries Private Limited by a group
of three professionals, Mr. Naveen Sawhney,
Mr. D.K. Prashar and Mr. Rakesh Malhotra
with an objective to cater to the growing requirement
for high quality.Customised cables. One of our main
objects was to acquire and take over as a going concern
the partnership business carried on under the name and
style of Cords Cable Industries.

We started our operations by manufacturing co-axial
cables and instrumentation cables at our production unit
at Okhla Industrial Area, New Delhi.Thereafter,
we took over the business of the partnership concern M/s
Cords Cable Industries as a going concern along with all
assets and liabilities with effect from May 1, 1992.

October 23, 1987 to manufacture and trade cables.
The firm was jointly formed by Mrs. Santosh Malhotra,
Mr. Chanan Lal Sawhney, Mr. B.D. Prashar, Mr. A.M. Sanghvi
and Mr. Vimal Dev Monga. Pursuant to the takeover,
the said partnership concern ceased to exist with effect
from May 1, 1992.
