New Age Modern Home Appliances
Our journey in appliances began in 1958. At that time, Indians had no choice but to import foreign appliances for their homes. We took as our goal to develop and manufacture a refrigerator in India, and we made India’s first. It was momentous, and a big milestone in India’s journey of self-reliance.
Today, we have grown to become one of India’s largest players in the fast-growing home appliances market. With manufacturing facilities in Shirwal, outside of Pune, Maharashtra and Mohali, Punjab which are the first and only manufacturing units in the country to win the coveted Platinum Green Co. certification for their efforts in green manufacturing; and a state-of-the-art R&D centre in Pirangut on the outskirts of Pune.
We’ve passionately been offering some of India’s most thoughtfully designed appliances because we believe we should make people’s lives more convenient. Our research shows that vegetables are the most frequently accessed item in a refrigerator in an Indian home, so we switched the freezer to the bottom in our NXW refrigerators, and raised the height of our vegetable drawer, ensuring you don’t have to bend to take your vegetables out. We also know that frequent opening of the refrigerator raises the internal temperature , so we offered an innovative solution to the issue by providing a separate vegetable drawer in our single door refrigerators Edge Duo, so you don’t have to open the whole refrigerator to access your vegetables, preventing cooling loss and thermal shock, and optimising your energy bills.
In our front load washing machines, we introduced a novel allergy protect technology, to ensure that your linens are germ and allergen free after being washed. In response to the Covid pandemic and to make home sterilisation convenient, we introduced the Viroshield. It uses 360-degree disinfecting ultraviolet technology that sterilises surfaces in a matter of minutes. It makes sterilisation of groceries, parcels, and daily use items like masks, keys and cash, easy and hassle free. This device has been tested and certified by an ICMR empanelled lab for its UV irradiance, and UV leak effectiveness, making it safe for domestic use.
We introduced a small format food and beverage cooler – the Qube, which fits into small spaces, providing easy access to chilled food and drinks. The Qube is compact, compressor and refrigerant-free and works on superior solid-state cooling technology.It’s versatile enough to fit into your kitchen, bedroom, or even your office.
Our commitment to sustainability also led us to introduce an inverter technology that delivers faster and more efficient cooling for your air conditioners and protects the environment while ensuring your cooling needs. Our notable sustainability credentials include India’s first green refrigerator in 2001, the world’s first green AC and 7-star AC in 2012, India’s first inverter AC in 2005, the largest range of single door 5-star refrigerators in 2008 and 6-star refrigerator in 2013.
As the world gets warmer, and population growth and urbanisation increase, the demand for air conditioners is projected to rise from 1.2 billion to 4.5 billion (of which India will account for 1 billion) by 2050. We are proud to be the only Indian company shortlisted for the Global Cooling Prize, a prestigious global challenge to design a cooling solution with five times less climate impact than the ACs popular today. The Global Cooling Prize is an international innovation competition conducted by the Rocky Mountain Institute to develop super-efficient and climate friendly residential cooling solutions for the home.
