KEC, under the brand name Asian Cables, is a leading manufacturer and exporter of power and telecom cables in India.

Asian Cables, Incorporated in 1959, was acquired by the RPG group in 1966. In the 1980s, the Group established factories at Mysuru and Rae Bareli to manufacture telecom cables as a joint sector project with respective governments. The telecom cable businesses and Asian Cables were merged into a single entity in 1996 to form what we have known as RPG cables. RPG Cables was finally merged into KEC International in 2009, marking the entry of KEC into the cable manufacturing business. We have now re-branded RPG Cables to its original name of Asian Cables to respect its glorious past and legacy and role in building the infrastructure of India.
