Our Product quality is unmatched and we can supply to any specific requirements, since we have strong R&D headed by the Chairman V.Ramaraj, who is having Master degree in Electronics and had invented many import substitute products for the first time in India.
OPAL was the only brand exported Electronic ballast to USA as per its UL requirements and nobody else from the Indian Manufacturers. OPAL always stands first in terms of quality and performance and out beats all the giants in the competitions.
OPAL is having the factory, in a remote place in Thanjavur District, an industrially backward area only with the aim of providing employment opportunity for the upliftment of Rural women. OPAL also has a goal to manufacture only Energy saving devices for the purpose of supporting energy crisis in India and had contributed a lot till date.
The factory is setup in the Land area of 2.34 Acres and with built up area of 20,000 SFT, with all the facilities required for the manufacturing such as assembly halls, Quality Control, Bulk store, Component Stores, Conference Hall, Auditorium, Office area, Canteen, Power House, Watchman Quarters and big Lawn Area with concrete Roads. OPAL has all the facilities required for the manufacturing of Electronic products.
OPAL now recently added SMT machineries required for LED lights production. Now OPAL is equipped with most modern machineries to manufacture all the ranges of LED Lights.
OPAL was manufacturing Electronic Ballasts,
used in tubelight applications to conserve energy
up to 30% . There was a technological change in the
field of lighting towards LED lights from the year
2013. The LED was able to save power up to 70%.
So there was a shift towards LED lights and the demand on Electronic ballast started shrinking down. Because of this shift, OPAL factory was also modified to manufacture LED lights by changing the production Lines and incorporating necessary machineries.
Now OPAL factory is ready to manufacture LED Lights and its production Capacity is Rs.2.00 Crores per month per shift. OPAL may have to add some Testing machineries.
In the last 3 years, the LED Lights were dumped
in India by Chinese manufacturers, through direct
and indirect channels and most of them filled the
domestic and commercial requirements.
The prices were cheap and none of the local manufacturers were able to compete with them and their businesses were only with the Industries. Now Government has brought the norms to restricts the import of LED lights.
With this the grey market operation is reduced and the real manufactures are able to meet the genuine competition. The support of Government by restricting the import will help the manufacturer to meet the competition.
But many bigger brands are getting their LED Light Products, branded from China. Many of the big brands don’t have the factory in India to manufacture LED Lights.
The factory was awarded for Performance Excellence
by the Government of Tamilnadu in the year 1991 & 1994.
In the year 2000, the factory was awarded ISO 9001 Certification.
Presently OPAL factory is ISO 9001-2008 Certified.
The factory has RoHS facility to cater to the needs of European Union requirements of Electronic Ballasts and LED Driver and Lights. The company was exporting world class products to many countries including USA, UK and New Zealand.
In order to sensitize the people with the awareness of energy efficiency and conservation, the company conducts regularly seminars in various forums. It also undertakes socio-economic activities in the districts like
Providing employment opportunity for the women folk in the industrially backward rural area
