It was the summer of 1958 when Godrej launched the first refrigerator in India. It solved a lot of problems a common man faced back then. Even today we are bringing cool modern home appliances to meet today’s needs through Eon.
The innovation we have brought to the refrigeration technology is a very old story. We introduced the PUF (Polyurethane Foam) technology in the 80’s, which created 100% CFC free fridges, way before the green revolution even began. We also gave equal attention to the aesthetics and added colourful doors to them.
Presently we are producing a lot more than cooling machines. We have spread our reach to washing machines, air conditioners, microwave ovens, DVD players, televisions and beyond.
We are not just bragging; we are the best. We have been voted the most trusted brand according to the Reader’s Digest consumer survey four years in a row. Also we earned the CNBC Consumer Awaaz award three years in a row. Eon was chosen Mera Brand of the year in 2008 at the Consumer World Awards. In the same year, Urjavaran Foundation handed us the Empower India Award for our energy efficiency. Today we are more than just a brand; we are a Super brand.
