History

It seems like yesterday in 1981 that our founders Mr. Mulchand L. Nagda and Mr. Hemchand L. Nagda gave wings to their dream of establishing a cookware brand that is second to none. Kicking off with just one avenue, stainless steel cookware, albeit with the best steel and most advanced technology, we have travelled a long, long way to reach four distinct types of cookware today. We always won the hearts and trust of our distributors, dealers, retailers, importers, institutional buyers and customers by ensuring timely shipments and deliveries. To this day, we continue to inspire our team to keep outperforming ourselves – that makes us rewrite our past records.

 

Our Capabilities

Our massive manufacturing, warehousing and distribution units are located on the close outskirts of Mumbai. We’re one of the very few companies to have some of the most sophisticated machinery including sheet cutting, fully automatic coil blanking, fully automatic pressing lines, spinning, automatic, and semi-automatic polishing lines and manual polishing lines. We also house a Quality Control and a packaging cell – all under one roof. We place paramount importance to Safety when testing products like Pressure cookers which are of everyday use. Working conditions are assuredly safe and healthy, since we participate in the Government’s health and safety audits. The yardstick for any kind of quality check – the ISO 9001-2008 – as well as having ourselves audited by Walmart, Carrefour, TESCO, METRO GMBH and other US and Europe based retailers, all fit comfortably in our portfolio as a reassured quality parameter. We also are an active member of BSCI and SEDEX for our UK and European markets. To ensure perfection in manufacturing, we place utmost importance on workers’ health & safety. Social & ethical compliance are in the prime spot. We’ve also participated in social and technical audits.

Today

As time passes, the legacy of a brand gets transferred to the younger crop. Our strict guidelines that ensure high quality, coupled with new age ideas, systems and modernization are what empower and enable us to keep moving with pace, and meet the exponential rise in demand. In-house anodizing and coating setups and a creatively driven product design cell provide the tracks for smooth journeys of conceptualization and manufacturing. Their communication with our R&D wing and our Marketing specialists completes our Marketing circle. As a part of our distribution strategy, we have Depots (distribution centres) spread across the country, which make our products available to customers in shorter lead times.

The overall planning & administrative efficiency helps us manage four broad segments of the KE range: Stainless steel Kitchenware and Cookware, Hard Anodised Cookware, Non Stick Cookware and Pressure Cookers
