How does a company transform itself into a cornerstone of the power industry? For Eppeltone Engineers Pvt. Ltd., the answer lies in a legacy that spans more than four decades. Founded in 1977 by the visionary Late Sh. Harish Chander Chowdhary, the company has embarked on a journey rooted in innovation and excellence. The company has transitioned from manufacturing Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) to pioneering advanced products including AVR, UPS, MCBs, and energy meters. Eppeltone’s commitment to providing superior quality, service, and steadfast dedication to India’s infrastructure development makes it one of the renowned firms in the manufacturing arena.

The company has continued its march towards excellence under the guidance of Rohit Chowdhary who joined the company in 2004 and brought in a new perspective and strategic vision by leveraging his rich experience of two decades in the electronics manufacturing industry. Academically, Rohit has done an M.Tech in the Engineering domain.

As Eppeltone’s Director, Rohit dedicates himself to upholding the company’s legacy and driving it towards continued success, innovation, and sustainability. Leveraging his expertise, he incepted the NABL-approved R&D Testing laboratory to ensure the delivery of high-quality products, manufactured with absolute precision. The laboratory setup aligns perfectly with Eppeltone’s commitment to pioneering futuristic and innovative technologies. 

With certifications including ISO 9001, 140001 & 27001, and ‘S’ mark safety accreditation from the Government of India, Eppeltone has become the epitome of uncompromising quality and reliability. Its relationship with state utility DISCOMs and approval from over 30 state government utilities underscores its position as a trusted partner in India’s journey towards sustainable energy solutions.

Quality, Reliability & Innovation

The visionary Late Sh. Harish Chander Chowdhary was a fervent electrical engineer. He incepted Eppeltone in the late 1970s with an intent to manufacture Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) for computers and other electronic devices. In the 1990s, he ventured into the Indian electronics market and established manufacturing facilities in Parwanoo, Himachal Pradesh and Okhla, New Delhi to strengthen Eppletone’s presence and influence further. With time, the company diversified and included AVR, UPS, MCBs and transducers, thus getting an edge over the existing market players. 

In 1999, the demand for energy meters surged following the government’s emphasis on substantial infrastructure projects. Eppeltone grabbed this opportunity with open arms to expand its operations. It set up state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and gradually became successful in solidifying its position as a top metering solutions provider in India.

Since its inception, Eppeltone has remained committed to delivering high-quality and cost-effective metering solutions to its valued customers. While Rohit plays a crucial role in establishing the company’s cutting-edge NABL-approved R&D testing laboratory, Deven, who has been an integral part of the company, leverages his robust business acumen to help expand and use exceptional efficiency to deliver top-quality metering products consistently.

Eppeltone has achieved significant milestones, including the relocation of its factory from Okhla to Greater Noida in 2016. Achievements also include the launch of new products such as water & smart meters and attaining certifications such as CMMI Level III and ISO 9001, 140001 & 27001 for upholding stringent quality, environmental, and information security standards. Additionally, the company has in-house automatic SMT & PCB lines and automatic moulding machines to help maintain a seamless production process. “These efforts have helped Eppeltone cultivate relationships with several state utility DISCOMs throughout India,” states Rohit while recollecting the company’s achievements.
