The JLC Timeline

JLC become the leading manufacturer of Nickel-based alloys in wire, strips and ribbon forms

JLC Group dates back more than four decades to its foundation. A young and ambitious engineer, with a vision to contribute to the industrial and economic map of India started his venture in 1972 to manufacture Lead-in-wires for electric lamps.

This was the beginning of a long journey and since then JLC has continuously added various alloys to its product portfolio and has developed a strong relationship with its customers ranging from small companies to multi-national OEMs.

Foresight, diligence, and innovation have helped JLC become the leading manufacturer of Nickel-based alloys in wire, strips and ribbon forms.
