Founded in 1992 in New Delhi, Padmini’s first products were automotive horns that were specifically designed for the demanding conditions of the Indian market. Heavy horn usage, dusty conditions, and horizontal monsoon rains caused horns designed for European and Japanese duty cycles to fail, and Padmini solved that problem by manufacturing its own horn design. By the late 1990’s, Padmini’s horns could be found in >80% of all new passenger cars sold in India. The horn division was later sold to Hella, and Padmini began investing in emissions controls.
Padmini is now one of the leaders in emissions controls systems in India and has diversified to a broad range of mechatronics actuators, serving Japanese, European, Indian and American automotive OEMs. The vision is to continue growing through heavy investment in in-house research, design, validation and production process refinement.
Success in the automotive business has also led to investments and product development support in two non-automotive cleantech ventures, in the areas of concentrated solar power and personal cooling.
