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.


  • OPAL quality is well established over 27 Years across the industries in India and in abroad.
  • OPAL have designed and developed its own Drivers for LED lights, the heart of the system, which determines the reliability.

  • OPAL is the only brand, which is providing service to its products during and after warrantee period, since 1989.
  • LED lights life is claimed to be 50000Hrs, say 10 Years. Most of the brands give warrantee of maximum 2 years, but when it fails after 2 years it is to be thrown out and the e-waste is generated. Whereas at OPAL, the service is provided even after the warrantee period till the life of the product. The user can utilize the products full usage. This out beats most of the competitor and OPAL stands to gain. OPAL also helps in reducing the e-waste, a biggest problem to the environment.
  • OPAL, through it strong R&D makes most reliable products, and can easily compete with other big Brands in terms of performance, specification and most importantly the Reliability.
