Anchor has been among the prime moving force in the consolidation of the sector involving manufacturing of electrical products in India for more than 50 years. The sector has moved towards becoming an organized one largely because of presence of Anchor, and consequently electrical accessories have been able to share the exposure enjoyed by products in the mainstream commerce. Anchor has been able to achieve so much during the last five decades because of the values it has come to represent such as Safety, Trust, and Reliability, which has allowed it to grow into the second largest conglomerate in the electronics industry from its humble beginning. However, although the years, it has maintained its commitment towards manufacturing quality electrical products, and revolutionize the electrical accessories market in India.
The merger between Anchor and the Panasonic Corporation of Japan has helped in bolstering its presence as one of the leaders in this market both in India, and in other countries neighbouring her. Moreover, Anchor has always remained committed towards conserving the environment by producing eco-friendly products which helps in adding value to people’s lives without causing any damage to the Nature. The Panasonic founder’s ideology, ‘Konosuke Matsushita’ has had profound impact and been the driving force behind the everyday operations at Anchor. The ideology reiterates the important role the company must play as a public entity through its business to be able to contribute towards the betterment of the society. Thus, Anchor has been at the forefront of evolving a more environmentally conscious lifestyle for its users, which is both safe and sustainable for the future.
Apart from allowing Anchor to absorb the eco-friendly approach of Panasonic, the merger of the two has also brought about a happy marriage between the technological prowess of one and the immense distribution strength of another. In fact, the product portfolio of Anchor at present reiterates this fact with the availability of over 3000 different products existing across product groups. The presence of a vast distribution network ensures proper distribution throughout the length and breadth of the country with the help of more than 5000 dealers, and 450,000 retail outlets.
Anchor has remained focussed upon dominating the electrical accessories market and playing a leading role in the development of infrastructural facilities in the country. The recent acquisition of the infrastructure and security giant, Firepro, has underlined this deep commitment. Anchor has been able to widen its horizons in terms of inorganic growth and the market it caters to with the help of this acquisition.
Anchor enjoys an extensive portfolio in terms of services and products its offer to its customers. This includes substantial exports to the countries neighbouring India with the exports division always being alert to the needs of developing products specifically suitable for the terrain. The list of products it exports includes switches & accessories, switchgear & protection devices, wires & cables, as well as, state-of-the-art lamps and lights under both Anchor and Panasonic brands.
