Polycab India Limited is a prominent manufacturer of cables and wires, as well as ancillary items such as uPVC conduits, lugs, and glands in India.

No business is big from its inception.

Polycab began its journey as a family enterprise, i.e., ‘Sind Electric Stores’ established by Late Thakurdas Jaisinghani in 1964.

The management was later passed on to Thakurdas’s sons – who founded ‘Thakur Industries’ in 1968. In 1983, ‘Polycab Industries,’ a partnership firm, emerged, marking a pivotal moment as a small-scale industrial unit in Halol for PVC-insulated wires and cables.

In 1996, the Company officially became ‘Polycab Wires Pvt. Ltd.’ under the Companies Act of 1956.

The status of Polycab as a public company is quite an interesting story as initially, it did not intend to go public. In 2000, the Company was compulsorily made a public limited company due to some of the provisions of the Companies Act of 1956. It was not a usual listing.

In 2001, due to the same legal provisions, the Company regained its status as a private company. Thereafter, it took 17 years for it to go public.

It then converted into a public limited company, as it is now, in 2018. A fresh certificate of incorporation was issued with the name of “Polycab India Limited (Formerly Polycab Wires Limited).

Diversification into Fast Moving Electrical Goods:

Over the years, Polycab expanded its horizons, evolving into ‘Polycab India Limited’ in 2018. Now, it is India’s largest manufacturer of wires and cables.

Beyond its core business, Polycab entered the Fast-Moving Electrical Goods (FMEG) sector in 2014, offering products like electric fans, LED lighting, switches, and solar solutions.

In 2009, the Company diversified further by venturing into Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects, showcasing a commitment to innovation and market adaptability.

Polycab’s 24 manufacturing facilities, spread across Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttarakhand, Tamil Nadu, and Daman, ensure a robust production capacity.

Innovation and Adaptability: From the Ryker Plant, a joint venture for copper wire rods, to IoT-enabled home automation solutions and a vast array of appliances, Polycab adapts to market demands and embraces emerging trends.
