A Brief History

In the year 1955, a small-scale cable manufacturing unit was set up as a family venture by Late Mr. Shyam Sunder Aggarwal, the founder chairman. Following its success, he established a new unit under the name of Paramount Cable Corporation in the year 1978 and started supplying telecom cables to the Department of Telecommunications. These humble beginnings with years of hard work, eventually transformed into Paramount Communications Limited and grew manifold to become one of the largest and most trusted names in the Indian cable manufacturing industry.

Diversification began with the manufacturing of specialized cables in the early 1980s. In the year 1984, it was the first company to be awarded the National Entrepreneurship Award by the President of India for Outstanding Achievement in the field of wire and cable manufacturing.
