About the company
In 1979, the mother company, Kwality Electricals Pvt Ltd, got a licence to manufacture 100,000 LEDs per annum. But it was only in 1987, when the licence was broad banded and import duties were reduced, that a new company called Kwality Electronic Industries was set up, to manufacture filament bulbs. The company was an OEM for a majority of the automotive electronics companies in India. The unit first manufactured the through-hole LEDs and, eventually, added seven-segment displays to its portfolio. It was in 1993 that the seven-segment display manufacturing division was spun off as Kwality Photonics Pvt Ltd. The Kwality LEDs were the first approved Indian source for the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) and the Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DoT) in 1990.
