Pune based Elegar Kerpen, estimates 3 fold growth rate after its parent company Ravicab Cables Private Limited acquired LEONI Cable Solutions India Private Limited, with a hundred percent equity stake. Following divestiture by LEONI AG Group in 2022, LEONI India – the Indian subsidiary of the German company that enjoys a century-old vintage in the wire and cable industry, repositioned itself as Elegar Kerpen Kabel India. The brand name Elegar was thoughtfully derived from a combination of the words Electric and Garden or Hub.
Elegar Kerpen, formerly known as LEONI Cable Solutions India, is set to achieve an impressive three-fold growth by 2026-27
The strategic acquisition enabled the Pune-based progressive wire and cable company of Elegar Kerpen to leverage LEONI India’s market expertise in specialized wires and cables in oil and gas, specialty chemicals, refineries, renewable energy segments, and the Indian Railways. Following the acquisition, Elegar inherited the brand name Kerpen, which has a glorious 100-year-old history in the oil and gas segment. This strategic move has enabled Elegar to expand its product line and explore new market territories, including the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, the UK, South East Asia, and Australia, to achieve growth.
The Chairman and Managing Director of Elegar Kerpen, Mr. Hemant K Mehta, shared his thoughts on the acquisition and explained the company’s growth plans, saying, “We are excited upon the completion of this acquisition in 3 months and subsequent rebranding. This acquisition brings world-class equipment, German technology, and trained professional manpower to grow the business three folds by 2026-27, and the synergies it will bring on procurement, sharing best practices, common professional advisors, and customer focus between Elegar Kerpen and Ravicab Cables.”
