INEL was incorporated in 1984 and converted into a joint venture in 1986 between Lucas Indian Service, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Lucas-TVS and Kokusan Denki Co, Japan - a group company of Hitachi Japan, to manufacture Electronic Ignition Systems for two-wheelers, three wheelers and portable engines. Over the years the company has enlarged its customer base and now supplies to most of the manufacturers of two-wheelers, three wheelers and gensets. INEL makes the entire range of 2/3 wheelers, digital and analog ignition products. Commencing its operation in Hosur (Tamil Nadu), over the years INEL has set up two more units with excellent facilities, one at Pondicherry and the other at Rewari (Haryana) to be nearer to customers and offer service such as just-in-time supplies and to improve response time for introduction of new products.
