Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd. was named ‘Indian outdoor LED Lighting Company of the Year’ at Frost & Sullivan’s 2018 India Best Practices Awards Banquet. Crompton has seen a steady growth of its lighting business with the introduction of energy-efficient LED lights. The company’s LED lamp sales volume recorded 101% growth, as revenue grew by 62% in FY 17-18.

The Crompton HAWK and Pluto series in outdoor LED lighting are seen as favourable products with aesthetically appealing and robust aluminium cast frames. The company’s LED outdoor lighting products have been installed in national highways and roadways across the country, and operate under rough conditions with great efficiency.
Innovative products, deepening distribution reach, operational efficiencies, and strengthening of critical capabilities have anchored Crompton’s faster-than-industry growth pace over the year.
