PARIVARTAN – Training & Development Program, Planning and Implementation at MEWCI

 

Vijay Mirchandani was a pioneer in the field of electric power transmission in India; he started MEW (Mirchandani Engineering Works) in 1949. In 1954, he won a  Government of India contract to provide supply transmission towers for the Beas Dam Project, an upcoming power project in the Northern part of India. The company had to build a repository of its resources to execute a project of such a mega scale. As a result MEW started its first manufacturing plant in Vijaywada Industrial Area, Andhra Pradesh in 1955. This was augmented by another manufacturing plant at Gopalpur, Orissa in 1959, followed by a manufacturing unit in Durgapur, West  Bengal in 1961. MEW started manufacturing cables wires at its othertwo plants in Naroda, Ahmedabad, Gujarat and Ludhiana, Punjab, that were established in 1963 and 1968, respectively. By 1969, MEW was supplying over 50% of transmission towers demands in India.

By 1971, Mirchandani Group, as it came to be known, comprised of two companies with five manufacturing units in different parts of the country. Post Vijay  Mirchandani’s death in 1971, internal family feuds saw the the company being sold out to Credence International, an Indian Multinational Conglomerate having its interest ranging from oil exploration to retail. Credence International knew that MEW had strong brand equity in the marketplace. They decided to leverage on the  existing brand and the new merged entity was rechristened as MEW Credence International Limited (MEWCI Ltd.) in the Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) towers space.

The Current Situation: Today MEWCI Limited has a turnover of $1.5 billion with global operations spanning more than 10 countries across Asia, Africa and Europe. It is among the top three privately-held companies in the world and the largest in India in the field of transmission and telecommunication tower manufacturing space......
