History and Milestones

Electropneumatics was established in 1972 by Mr. Antony Rasquinha, Chairman & Managing Director, with a team of five persons. The desire to innovate and develop new products and technologies that would benefit the Indian industry was the founding stone on which the company was built. This underlying philosophy is the essence of all developments and the path on which the company treads.

Electropneumatics started by developing and manufacturing pneumatic valves, as substitute to expensive imported ones. From this humble beginning, the company gradually climbed the ladder of innovation by introducing many indigenous products such as pneumatic cylinders, hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic presses and machine tools, proportional/servo technology and PLC/CNC systems, tube bending machines, honing machines, compacting presses, industrial robots, special purpose machines, hydroforming, servo mechanical presses, etc. Many of these machines have been ‘first-of-its-kind’ in India.
