About Elpro International Ltd

Elpro International Limited was incorporated in July 1962 as a public limited company, in technical and financial collaboration with General Electric, USA. The company is the only one outside the United States to manufacture surge arresters and zinc oxide discs with GE technology, acknowledged to be the best in the world.

The product portfolio of the company includes, surge arresters, distribution class arresters, station class arrestors, secondary surge arresters, under oil surge arrestors, accessories, zinc oxide discs and varistors.

The company’s corporate headquarters are located in Pune, 170 km from India’s financial capital Mumbai, and its multi-manufacturing facilities are based out of Pune and Hyderabad.

Elpro International Ltd. is India's largest and among the leading companies in South Asia in the design, manufacture and supply of distribution, intermediate and station class Metal Oxide Surge Arresters with technology from GE, USA. In tune with changing times and technology, Elpro's products were first upgraded from 2H type Intermediate Arresters to Active- Gap technology and, a few years later, again upgraded to Metal Oxide Arresters, alternatively known as Gapless. Besides technical advantages, Gapless Arresters provide significant cost savings in insulation compared to similar traditional Gap-type Arresters.

An ISO 9001-2000 company, Elpro International is the number one manufacturer of surge arresters in Asia manufactured with technical know how from GE USA. It is the only manufacturer outside the United States manufacturing Surge Arresters and Zinc Oxide Discs with GE technology  acknowledged to be the best in the world.

Elpro’s constant adherence to excellence in quality and expertise in marketing has ensured a reliable brand image and a dominant market share in each of its product lines in India. It is the first company to introduce & produce Surge Arresters as well as Metal Oxide Gapless Surge Arresters in India. Elpro won the ELCINA award in the Research & Development category in 1987and its products have been successfully type tested in renowned laboratories like CESI - Italy, KEMA - Netherlands and CPRI  India.

Elpro International set up a metal oxide varistor manufacturing plant in its Pune facility in 1986 with technical expertise from GE. To enhance its capabilities further, Elpro acquired a Disconnecting Switch (Isolators) manufacturing company in 1994, Switchgear Manufacturing Company, which was set up in Hyderabad via a technical collaboration with ALPHA Switzerland.

Today, Elpro has a presence in international markets including USA, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Peru, Italy, France, Turkey, Russia, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Korea.

As part of its corporate vision to emerge as the leader in surge arresters, Elpro International acquired the Zinc Oxide Disc (active elements of surge arresters) manufacturing line from Harris, Ireland in 2001 and the same was installed in the company’s Pune facilities in the year 2002.

Harris and Elpro, both use GE’s technical expertise. As a result, the two companies share great synergy, which has translated in speedy absorption of technology and processes.

With this new facility, Elpro has a combined annual capacity to produce 450 tonnes of Zinc Oxide Discs, making the Company the leading manufacturer and supplier of Zinc Oxide Discs in Asia.
